 Who Do We Fund? Grant-making policy and grant award recommendations are made by the Slaton Area Endowment Advisory Board. The Endowment restricts its support to organizations in Lubbock 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.
NOTE: Beginning in 2017 school grant needs have been deferred to the Teacher Mini-Grant program of the Community Foundation of West Texas which has sufficient funding opportunities.
The Process… The Slaton Area Endowment offers multiple opportunities for the consideration of grant proposals. 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.
