Discretionary and Catalyst Grant Programs

January 18, 2016


Each year, the Amarillo Area Foundation and its supporting organization, The Don and Sybil Harrington Foundation, consider grant requests from public charities located within the northernmost 26 counties of Texas. The Amarillo Area Foundation will accept proposals for the Discretionary Grant (DG) Program and the Catalyst Grant (CG) Program. The DG program accepts grant requests of over $20,000 and the CG Program accepts grant requests between $2,500 to $20,000. The Amarillo Area Foundation’s four focus areas are education, health, human services, and poverty. The Harrington Foundation’s interests include hospitals and healthcare agencies, cultural programs, higher education, youth agencies, social services, and civic affairs.
