September 14, 2018 News 0

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 $651,000 and supports funds for 12 designated organizations. To date, the endowment has given 66 grants totaling $137,693.75 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 $21,500 in grants supporting worthy organizations and causes in the area.

Due to generous endowments and donations, the PGCE now has over 651,000 in our fund balance, 12 designated funds, and is pleased to award $21,527 during this grant cycle.
