Helping Deserving Students Achieve Their Dreams
In 2021, Andrew DeBusk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of USA DeBusk, announced the formation of the Taylor Whitley USA DeBusk Scholarship Foundation.
The mission of this 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is to award grants and scholarships to children of USA DeBusk employees attending universities, community colleges, and trade schools.
Scholarships support academic excellence and encourage students who exemplify the philosophy of “Showing Up” — the extraordinary act of making a difference in someone else’s life by valuing them more than yourself.
For the 2022-2023 academic year, the Taylor Whitley USA DeBusk Scholarship Foundation awarded over $204,000 worth of scholarships to 22 deserving students.
The foundation has established a goal of funding $800,000 in scholarships through 2025.
Here’s the story behind the scholarship program empowered by the Taylor Whitley USA DeBusk Scholarship Foundation.
Our Fundraising Event
The main fundraising event for the foundation is the annual Taylor Whitley Show Up Golf Tournament, which is conducted in partnership with the Taylor Whitley Show Up Foundation and provides financial support for both foundations.
Or 2021 event, held at Wildcat Golf Club in Houston, raised a record $332,000. These proceeds were used fund scholarships awarded by both organizations in 2022.
Thank you to the sponsors, participants, and volunteers for making a positive impact in the lives of deserving scholarship recipients!

About The Taylor Whitley Show Up Foundation
The Taylor Whitley Show Up Foundation was started to award grants and scholarships to high school and college students who exemplify “SHOWING UP.” Showing Up is the extraordinary act of making a difference in someone else’s life by valuing them more than yourself.
USA DeBusk is proud to support the work of this worthy foundation, serving as lead sponsor for an annual fundraising golf tournament. Many USA DeBusk employees participate and assist as organizing volunteers for the event.
The foundation was created to honor the memory of Taylor Whitley, a dear friend and member of the USA DeBusk team, who passed away unexpectedly from cardiovascular disease in 2018.
