enriching women’s lives

In 2008, the Amarillo Area Foundation and a group of community-minded women established the Women’s Philanthropy Fund (WPF) to address the needs of women and children in the Texas Panhandle.  The donors are philanthropically motivated women who recognize that pooling contributions can help them address the issues facing the women and children in our region in all areas of life. The WPF will focus on programs or projects assessed to have the highest possibility of a direct impact on the well-being of women and children in the Texas Panhandle.
