Logo: Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Foundation

The Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Foundation (TLPF) was established in 1987. It is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation. In 1990, TLPF received a very generous contribution from the estate of long-time TLPA member Herman R. Tate. To date, 165 individual donors have contributed $892,000 to the TLPF. In addition the sponsors of the annual TLPF Golf Tournament (Professional Insurance Center - 1998 & 1999; Gateway Insurance - 2000 to 2012; and Atlas Financial Holdings - 2013 & 2014) have donated an additional $68,000 in sponsorship fees to the Foundation.
