Amarillo Area Foundation Latest Grant Cycle Provides Majority of Funds to Rural Grants
Amarillo- TX – The service area for the Foundation is the top 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle. The Amarillo Area Foundation’s (AAF) latest grant cycle provides $574,000 in grants to rural communities. This is aligned with a concerted effort by AAF to enhance communities outside of Potter and Randall counties.
“It is the mission of the Amarillo Area Foundation to improve quality of life for residents in the top 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle. For 2018, one of our goals is to focus on improving our connection with the rural communities in the Panhandle,” said Jackie Pearson, AAF Board Chair, and Spearman resident.
59% of grants were allocated to the rural communities of: Childress, Clarendon, Cactus, Dalhart, Hereford, and Vega. These grants represented 54% of all dollars granted in the May grant cycle.
“While our discretionary grant cycle is only one way AAF serves the Texas Panhandle, it is perhaps the most familiar. We recently approved 11 discretionary grants and 6 of those grants were awarded to nonprofits in rural communities,” said Pearson.
Below is the complete list of grants awarded:
