Post-Garza County Endowment Awards Over $17,000 in Community Grants
The Post-Garza County Endowment, an affiliate of Community Foundation of West Texas, was created in 2010 to give the people of Post and Garza County the opportunity to build a pool of permanent resources exclusively for the benefit of their community.
The Post-Garza County Endowment (PGCE) was created by and for the people of this area, and is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of West Texas. Today the endowment has over $584,500 and supports funds for 11 designated organizations. To date, the endowment has given 46 grants totaling $77,698 to area non-profits. Each year, as the endowment grows, the group is able to give back even more to the community. This year alone the Post-Garza County Endowment will add to those numbers as they will give over $17,000 in grants supporting worthy organizations and causes in the area.
Due to generous endowments and donations, the PGCE now has over $584,500 in our fund balance, 11 designated funds, and is pleased to award $17,200 during this grant cycle.
