The Greater Pine Area Endowment is celebrating 30 years of supporting local organizations with financial recourses.
Starting in 1992 as a partner to the Initiative Foundation, the GPAE provides grant funds to non-profit organizations, schools, and government entities located within the physical boundaries of the Pine City School District.
Over the years, the endowment has given out over 150 grants totaling more than $600,000 in financial contributions.
Grants include wireless microphones for the Pine Heritage Players, equipment for the Pine City EMS, and money to construct a new playground at the softball field.
