South plains




Many of our neighbors are in need right now. Many of us suddenly find ourselves in need of neighborly care. To help meet these needs, the Community Foundation of West Texas and Lubbock Area United Way have joined together to create the South Plains COVID-19 Response Fund that will rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations at the frontlines of the coronavirus outbreak in the region. 


"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Nelson Mandela

The Community Foundation of West Texas is proud to award over 100 scholarships to South Plains area students each year. We work closely with the groups or individuals who have so graciously established scholarship funds to help out their community. We believe in creating a lasting impact in a student's life that they will cherish forever. Helping South Plains students today creates a stronger future for them tomorrow and beyond. 

Please take a look at our current scholarship opportunities frequently, as they are subject to change.
