Welcome to The Amelia Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the Rio Grande Valley Community. We have constructed a sanctuary of creativity, learning, and unity — a park that is welcoming to all.

“If you look at history, innovation doesn’t come just from giving people incentives; it comes from creating environments where their ideas can connect.”

– Steven Johnson

Our Mission

Our Mission

The Amelia Foundation is committed to fostering a vibrant and inclusive community through the creation and maintenance of a multifaceted recreational space in the Rio Grande Valley. We believe that through promoting shared experiences, education, and creativity in an accessible, welcoming environment, we can help to cultivate a thriving, interconnected community.

Our mission is to enrich lives by offering a diverse range of activities and programs that engage, inspire and empower. These include: hosting educational lectures and cultural performances in our state-of-the-art amphitheater, maintaining a serene garden walk that promotes mindfulness and an appreciation for the natural world, and providing numerous other resources for the collective growth and enjoyment of our community members.

Our Vision

We strive to ensure this park remains free and open to all, so as to not only unite the existing community but also to invite and embrace newcomers. By fostering social inclusion, promoting life-long learning, and inspiring creativity and a love for nature, we at The Amelia Foundation hope to build a brighter future for the Rio Grande Valley and its inhabitants.

At The Amelia Foundation, we see every person as a valuable part of the whole and seek to provide a haven where everyone can feel safe, respected, and valued. Our vision is to make the park a symbol of unity, acceptance, and resilience, a testament to the spirit of the Rio Grande Valley, that leaves a lasting legacy for generations to come.
