The Community Foundation of Abilene Continually Supports Special Olympics Texas


The Community Foundation of Abilene has been instrumental in our Big Country Area program. For the past 14 years, the Foundation has graciously awarded SOTX with over $65,000. Because of support like theirs, including a generous $5,000 grant earlier this year, Special Olympics Texas has been able to grow more opportunities for athletes with intellectual disabilities. 

The Community Foundation of Abilene is an organization that has been bringing "donors’ philanthropic vision to life by building endowments that enrich the quality of life in Abilene and the surrounding areas" since 1985. Thank you to the Community Foundation of Abilene for your continued support!
