Community Rewards

Every year we award $60,000 to local charities.

Our purpose is to use the power of relationships to help people succeed and live better. One of the ways we fulfill that purpose is through our annual Community Rewards program.

Community Rewards provides monetary contributions to nonprofit organizations during the holiday season. Since its launch in 2008, the program has given more than $1 million to 200 charitable organizations in the South Plains and Permian Basin regions.   

How it works

Nonprofit organizations can complete the online registration form during the fall enrollment period. Each organization then chooses from one of six categories: Basic Human Needs, Health & Wellness, Youth Development & Advocacy, Education & Youth Services, Community Contribution & Leadership, and Animal Welfare & Environment.

During the voting period, residents in the South Plains and Permian Basin regions vote for their favorite nonprofits to determine the 30 recipients.
