Kids on the Land

Angie Dickson Returns to Her Roots

Angie Dickson spent her childhood on her family’s ranch in West Texas. As an adult, she built a successful career in finance, but she felt a strong calling to give back. So she turned to CFT to help establish a fund that could accept gifts for Kids on the Land, a nonprofit that she formed with her mother, Katherine Dickson, and Peggy Maddox. Partnering with local landowners, schools and government organizations, this unique program teaches elementary school children about the natural resources in their own region.

Communities Foundation of Texas invited Angie to share her experience as a philanthropist and Kids on the Land co-founder with CFT’s 2015 GiveWisely class, which is designed for those wanting to sharpen their giving strategies. During the class, she met a couple who were so moved by her passion for the environment that they chose to give their GiveWisely donation to Kids on the Land—planting seeds for the sustainable future of Angie’s passion and the students she serves.
