our story

For over 20 years, the Foundation has continued to grow and help children through various programs within Amarillo and the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex.

Immediately after earning his PGA Tour card in 2003, Ryan Palmer turned to his family and friends who had supported him in his journey, and together they worked to form the Ryan Palmer Foundation. Ryan’s initial words were, “What I want from the foundation is to create opportunities for young people – like I’ve had throughout my life. This is my chance to help children and give back to the communities who have supported me.”
