The Foundation is the trail in which the generosity of others is returned to the community of Elizabeth and its neighbors. The Foundation enables our Stampede family to preserve the western legacy of providing support and assistance to those in need. Whether awarding scholarships, donating to charities, or just simply offering a little financial support to a family in need, the foundation reaches the lives of many.
