The Slaton Area Endowment, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of West Texas, was created in 2013 to give the people of Slaton the opportunity to build a pool of permanent resources exclusively for the benefit of their community.

The Slaton Area Endowment (SAE) 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 $357,000 and supports funds for 10 designated organizations. To date, the endowment has given 58 grants totaling $73,602 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 Slaton Area Endowment will add to those numbers as they will give $7,000 in grants supporting worthy organizations and causes in the area.

Due to generous endowments and donations, the SAE now has over $357,000 in our fund balance, 10 designated funds, and is pleased to award $7,000 during this grant cycle.
