CG applications are scored by a committee of community members under the age of 45 and then presented to the Board of Directors for consideration. Applications are available at and must be submitted through the online portal. Upon submission, applications and accompanying materials become the property of the Foundation and are used as deemed appropriate. These materials may be reviewed with others as part of the assessment process. Information may also be shared with other foundations and funding sources that call for information about community projects.

Applicants are encouraged to contact Foundation staff to arrange an appointment to discuss the potential request or with any questions. For more information about the Amarillo Area Foundation or about applying for grants, e-mail or call 806-376-4521.
