About the Friends of the Foundation

In 1981, a group of 12 local leaders envisioned changing the climate of philanthropy in Lubbock and the surrounding counties. The Community Foundation of West Texas was the product of these founding directors. Do you think they ever thought it would amount to giving over $2.5 million a year back to our community?

We are asking you to follow in their footsteps and join the “Friends of the Foundation” to help their dreams continue. For $100 or more annually, you can join our family of supporters who share a mutual love of our community and passion for the work of the Foundation. Your membership will provide the additional support we need to continue granting $2.5 million plus back into our community.

You will be a part of a truly influential organization that is changing the face of the philanthropic community every day. As a “Friend” you will be invited to all of our events and we will keep you up to date on the continued success of the Foundation.
