Healthy Senior

The next Healthy Seniors Grant Program cycle will most likely occur in the fall of 2024. (Criteria outlined on Program Overview page.)

Community Grant

To be eligible for funding, the applicant organization must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is classified as a public charity and must use the grant funds within and for the benefit of the residents and communities of the 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle.  Organizations should not request funds more than once in a 12-month period.  The Board will not consider a request from an organization that has an open Community Grant grant; therefore, all grant requirements, including reports, must be complete before an organization is eligible to apply.  In general the Foundation will not consider a grant request for less than $5,000.  (Please review other eligibility criteria found on the Program Overview page.)

Organizations are strongly encouraged to 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.
