Friends of the Foundation

Love Your Foundation!

In 1981, 12 leaders envisioned building the climate of philanthropy in Lubbock and the surrounding counties. The Community Foundation of West Texas was the product of these founding directors. We are asking you to join the "Friends of the Foundation" to expand their dreams. For $100 or more annually, you can support the work of the CFWT. You will join a truly influential organization that is changing the face of the philanthropic community every day. As a "Friend" you will be invited to all our events and we will keep you up to date on the continued success of the Foundation. Become a "Friend of the Foundation" supporter today!
