About this funder:




  • Any organization that has received funding from Abell-Hanger Foundation in the last two fiscal years or any nonprofit organization located within Midland County will be asked to submit an “Intent to Apply” prior to receiving the application form.
  • All other organizations will be required to first submit a “Pre-Application Request” which are reviewed by the trustees every 4-6 weeks to determine their level of interest.
  • Full applications are due at the 'full proposal' deadlines listed above.

The Abell-Hanger Foundation makes grants to benevolent, charitable, and educational undertakings for the furtherance of the public welfare, education, health services, human services, arts and cultural activities that benefit our community. We recognize that improvement happens at the local level, where individuals take action in their own communities.

  • Currently, giving is focused to the 57 counties of West Texas as defined by the Foundation. See map.
    • Any organization located outside of this area, will be considered based on the services provided to this region.
  • The applicant organization must be determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be exempt from federal income tax.
  • If you are seeking funds for a major capital campaign (defined as a campaign seeking to raise $1 million or more) approximately one-half of the needed funds must be raised prior to application to the foundation.
  • All requests from universities or colleges should be approved by the development office of the university or college and submitted to our offices under cover letter from the development office.
  • The Foundation generally limits its educational grants to institutions of higher education, including religious educational institutions.
  • Applicants must seek funding for the same proposal from various sources, as sole support of programs is rarely undertaken.


  • The Foundation does not make loans or grants to individuals.
