enriching women’s lives
In 2008, 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. In 2022, the WPF moved from a membership-only model to the opportunity for ANY individual, family, or business with a passion to support the critical needs of women and children in our region, to contribute and have a direct impact on the well-being of women and children in the Texas Panhandle… in all areas of life.
Advocates of the Women’s Philanthropy Fund connect, empower, and enrich women’s lives across the Texas Panhandle. WPF operates under the umbrella of the Amarillo Area Foundation and benefits from its expertise in capital investment, management, and grant services. The fund awards annual grants through an online AAF grant application to charitable organizations throughout the Texas Panhandle who serve women and/or children.
