In 1987, college was only a dream for many students, the Association began a scholarship program for graduates from Texas high schools. In the years since, the program has assisted the educational pursuit of more than 170 students. Recipients of the scholarships must participate as members of 4-H, FFA, and FCCLA programs, demonstrating the Association's anchored belief in these important youth programs.
In March of 2002, the Association continued it's tradition of serving West Texas youth by developing the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.
The mission of the foundation is to manage San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association scholarship funds and funds to benefit the future growth of the Association.
Endowments, individual, and corporate gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible. The proven generosity of West Texas friends and businesses have helped the Foundation grow into a self sustaining educational program for young people and serve as an avenue for charitable and memorial giving to the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo Association.
