“We exist to provide support and resources to the Plainview community in order for it to continue thriving. We want to take care of our friends and neighbors, and feel the Plainview Area Endowment (PAE) is a great way to do it. The money raised by our local endowment stays right here in Plainview,” said Mark Warren, advisory board member of the Plainview Area Endowment and board member of the Community Foundation of West Texas.
The Plainview Area Endowment was established in 2010 to create stability and sustainability for this community as economic and demographic landscapes continue to change.
As an affiliate of the Community Foundation of West Texas, the PAE provides a vehicle for building permanent charitable endowments for the benefit of this community. Grants are awarded from funds based on the interest of the donor or through an open competitive process that is responsible to the changing needs of the Plainview area.
