In 1987, college was only a dream for so many students. The Association began a scholarship program for high school graduates in Texas. In the years since, the program has assisted the educational pursuit of more than 170 high school students. Recipients of the scholarships must participate as members of 4-H, FFA, and/or FCCLA programs, demonstrating the Association's anchored belief in these important youth programs.
In March of 2002, the Association continued its tradition of serving West Texas and area youth by developing the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo Foundation, a 501(c3) charitable organization.
The mission of the foundation is to manage San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association scholarship and additional funds to benefit the future growth of the Association.
Endowments and individual or corporate gifts to the Foundation, which are tax deductible, are welcome. The proven generosity of West Texas friends and businesses will help the Foundation grow to a multi-million dollar educational program for young people and serve as an avenue for charitable and memorial giving to the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo Association.
