Community Investment Fund
CNS Pantex Community Investment Fund
Consolidated Nuclear Security established the CNS Pantex Community Investment Fund, through the Amarillo Area Foundation, as part of its commitment to Amarillo and surrounding communities. A Pantex Community Investment Advisory Committee was formed by selecting site employees to work with CNS and the Foundation to allocate grants where the need is greatest and company resources can be best allocated.
The Advisory Committee identified the following funding preferences and priorities for grants:
- Basic Needs (Food, Clothing, and Shelter)
- Children, Youth, and Family
- Community Development
- Financial Literacy
- Health and Wellness
The Advisory Committee for the CNS Pantex Community Investment Fund will entertain proposals from nonprofit and charitable institutions throughout the 26 northernmost counties in the Texas Panhandle (individuals and non-charitable organizations are not eligible). Priority is given to proposals from organizations located and operating in twelve contiguous counties surrounding the Pantex Plant, which includes Armstrong, Carson, Deaf Smith, Donley, Gray, Hall, Hutchinson, Moore, Oldham, Potter, Randall and Swisher.
