Apply for a Grant

The Foundation’s next grant application deadline is February 9th, 2018. The online application is now available.  This will allow applicants approximately ten weeks to prepare and submit the required information.

You should contact the Foundation prior to submitting an application so that we may discuss your proposed project and answer any questions you might have about the process. These meetings are extremely helpful for both the applicant and the foundation, and are strongly encouraged.

To be eligible for funding, the applicant organization must use the grant funds within and for the benefit of the residents and communities of the 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle.

It is important to remember that:

  • Organizations should provide evidence of support for the request, ability to work with other agencies and evaluation of potential duplication of services.
  • Organizations should not request funds more than once in a 12-month period.
  • Minimum Grant Amount – In general, the Foundation will not consider a grant which requests less than $2,500.
