Employee Directed

grant program

In January of 2016, Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC, responsible for the management and operations of the Pantex Plant, announced an employee-directed grant program. The CNS Pantex Community Investment Fund is a component fund of the Amarillo Area Foundation and the competitive grant program was developed as a part of CNS’ commitment to Amarillo and the surrounding areas. The Pantex Community Investment Advisory Committee is comprised of CNS employees.  The committee reviews grant applications and makes funding recommendations to the Amarillo Area Foundation board of directors. In the inaugural year, almost $300,000 was distributed from the CNS Pantex Community Investment Fund.

“The goal was to give our employees more of a voice in determining where corporate dollars are invested in the community where they work, live, and volunteer.

By working together with the Amarillo Area Foundation, we are confident that these grants and their recipients will have a positive impact in the Panhandle.”

Jason Bohne, CNS Communications and Public Affairs director.

“Pantex has always been committed to improving and supporting our surrounding communities.

We are very proud to continue our employees’ legacy of giving by contributing to Panhandle organizations through the CNS Community Investment Fund,”
