“Because of the Women’s Philanthropy Fund grant our organization is offering a series of financial stability programs in Spanish and English called “Money Matters,” targeted to the women in our area whose lives will be improved by increasing their “money management” skills. The members of this fund are passionate about helping others and we are grateful for the connection that the Women’s Philanthropy Fund and the Amarillo Area Foundation have with the nonprofits from all over the top 26 counties of the Panhandle.”
