25 years ago the Community Foundation of Brazoria County (CFBC) established Project Good Foundation (PGF) to provide financial support to underserved children within Brazoria County. Throughout 2023/24 the need has only increased. PGF is made possible by the CFBC PGF Endowment Fund, Grants from the Dow Chemical Company and the Gerstacker Foundation. Additional funding was provided by a generous contribution from PlusPower of Angleton. Thanks to our supporters PGF was able to provide funds for a greater number of students in 21 of Brazoria County Elementary Schools.
PGF funds are unrestricted. School Principals and teachers are free to use PGF funds in any way they see fit in support of their students' needs. Shoes, toiletries, medicine, glasses, gas money, clothes - whatever!
