Grantmaking policy and grant award
recommendations are made by the Post-Garza
Endowment Advisory Board. The Endowment restricts its support to
organizations in Garza County which are 501(c)(3) or the government equivalent. Grants
may be made for start-up funding, general operating support,
program support and demonstration programs. The Endowment
does not make grants to individuals, for political purposes,
to retire indebtedness or for payment of interest or taxes.
All grant recipients must report on the expenditure of grant
funds and results of the supported project within one year
of the award. Grant amounts may vary depending on the type
of fund from which resources are provided. Grant
applications are reviewed throughout the year. Contact the
Endowment for deadlines.
After we receive your complete proposal, copies will be provided
to the Advisory Board who will review and provide
recommendations. Additional information or a site visit may be requested.
You will be notified of the Board's decision as
soon as possible after the meeting at which your
application is considered.
