The Panhandle Gives
The Panhandle Gives is an annual event hosted and coordinated by the Amarillo Area Foundation (AAF). The event begins on the Monday before Thanksgiving and ends on the global day of giving, known as Giving Tuesday. This year, that’s November 20 – November 28, 2023. Any nonprofit eligible to receive a grant from AAF qualifies to register for participation.
That organization keeps one hundred percent of all donations raised by the organizations. In addition, each participating organization that raises at least $250 during the campaign receives a percentage match of the total amount of the Amplification Fund. The Amplification Fund is made up of money given from foundations, corporate sponsors, and individual donors and was established by AAF to AMPLIFY the amount of money participating organizations receive during the campaign.
The Panhandle Gives continues to be a focused effort of the Amarillo Area Foundation to support, empower, and encourage collaboration among nonprofits across the twenty-six counties of the Texas Panhandle. In 2022, the total amount raised was $8,892,377 enabling the growing number of participating nonprofits to serve their communities with innovative programs and services. We hope you’ll join us in 2023!
