Post-Garza County Endowment Affiliate Chair
The Post-Garza County Endowment, an affiliate of Community Foundation of West Texas, recently awarded $30,063 in community grants to local non-profit organizations.
The Endowment, created in 2010, gives the residents of Post and Garza counties the opportunity to build a pool of permanent resources exclusively for the benefit of their community.
Today the endowment has more than $740,000 and supports funds for 17 designated organizations. To date, the endowment has given 106 grants totaling $247,843.81 to 19 area non-profits and students. 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 added to those numbers as it awarded $30,063 in grants supporting worthy organizations and causes in the area. Included in this year’s grants were $7,500 in COVID-19 relief funding.
