Why should you donate? If you give during The Panhandle Gives, THPW will receive MORE due to the Amplification Fund. The Amarillo Area Foundation has established the “Amplification Fund” comprised of money given from foundations, corporate sponsors, and individual donors. This fund serves as a percentage match for any organization raising at least $250 during the campaign. At the end of the campaign, the total amount raised will be broken down by percentage per organization. Each organization will receive 100% of what was designated to them PLUS their percentage of the Amplification Fund. Donations must be received between November 23 through December 1 to be eligible for amplification.
There are many ways to give:
