The David D. and Nona S. Payne Foundation was established in August of 1980.  Mrs. Payne established the Foundation and did much of her charitable giving in honor of her late husband, David Payne.  Mrs. Payne was a very generous benefactor to charitable organizations in the Texas Panhandle and the Foundation continues to restrict their grants to the top twenty six counties of the Texas Panhandle according to her wishes. Grants are made semi-annually in April and October each year.  Application deadlines are March 23rd and September 23rd.
