Leadership and Legacy

About Us

In 1957, a group of forward-thinking Texas Panhandle community members came together to address the area’s healthcare needs. Their vision created a legacy that grew into the Amarillo Area Foundation. The Foundation works with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to create charitable funds to support the community causes they care about. 

We are dedicated to supporting the people and programs that enrich the lives of everyone in the Texas Panhandle. We look for opportunities to foster healthy communities.

programs

Leadership goes beyond managing people. It comes in many shapes and sizes, but it always involves being other-centered. It’s about providing a vision, influencing and serving others, and being bold enough to realize that reaching your goal will take the efforts of many people. To maximize our positive impact on the region, the Amarillo Area Foundation develops and implements initiatives and programs to address individual and community needs. Working with donors, nonprofit organizations, civic leaders, local and national experts, we collaborate with Texas Panhandle communities to help all residents achieve their highest potential.
