Xcel Energy

An area utility company has awarded grants to nonprofit organizations in Texas and New Mexico.

The Xcel Energy Foundation has given $156,500 in grants to 38 nonprofit groups supporting the arts and economic sustainability.

The arts and economic sustainability focus areas are two of four annual grant cycles in which area nonprofits can participate. Other cycles are education and environment.

The foundation also matches United Way contributions and employee gifts to nonprofit agencies dollar for dollar, according to a press release.

Groups receiving arts and culture funding include the Amarillo Museum of Art, the City of Bovina, City of Levelland, Clovis Community College, the Plainview Civic Music Association, and the Ralls Historical Museum.

The organizations receiving economic sustainability grants include the Crisis Center of the Plains, Inc. in Plainview and the Rio Blanco Heritage Foundation in Crosbyton.

“Area nonprofits play a key role in improving the quality of life in our communities, and we view our support as investments in our future,” said Riley Hill, president and CEO of Southwestern Public service Company, an Xcel Energy company.

Their Texas-New Mexico service territory covers most of the Panhandle and South Plains regions of Texas, and the eastern and southeastern counties of New Mexico.
