Originally an entity of the Amarillo Area Foundation, the Harrington Regional Medical Campus is a nonprofit organization responsible for the orderly development of the Medical Center campus in Amarillo, free of bias and devoted to planning for the future medical needs of our area’s residents. 

The Harrington Regional Medical Campus became a supporting organization of the Foundation in 2015. Reunifying the two organizations better accommodates the Foundation’s goal to bring world-class healthcare to the Texas Panhandle. 


The Don and Sybil Harrington Foundation was founded as a trust in Amarillo in 1951 by oilman Donald D. Harrington and his wife, Sybil Buckingham Harrington. It became a nonprofit corporation in 1971 and became a supporting organization of the Amarillo Area Foundation in 1988. It is a broad-purpose private foundation directed by a seven member board. Its interests include hospitals and healthcare agencies, cultural programs, higher education, youth agencies, social services, and civic affairs.  


This Canadian, Texas landmark was built in 1910 as the First Baptist Church. In 1977, the Abraham family purchased the building and converted it into their family residence. After 30 years of serving as their home, the Abrahams donated the mansion, the art, and the gardens as a public art museum, known as The Citadelle Art Foundation, to be able to share their art with generations to come. 

Through art, we document the greatest potential of our own humanity, and this partnership with the Amarillo Area Foundation helps educate Texas Panhandle residents with a base of knowledge that allows them to enjoy a wider range of experience.
