Advisory Board Member Spotlight: Phyllis Wall

What made you want to get involved with the Plainview Area Endowment?

When I was asked to serve on the PAE Board, I knew that creating a provision for long-term giving provided an avenue to help our community. Anything that we can do to help boost non-profit organizations to help their client base has real and lasting value. I am excited to have the opportunity to serve, build, and encourage others in the process.


What is the most rewarding part of being on the board?

A most rewarding part of board service is seeing financed projects realized. It is also wonderful to see the young people of our community understand the passion and purpose of the Plainview Area Endowment.


What is one thing you wish people knew about the Plainview Area Endowment?

The mindset of giving a little creates a big togetherness for a better community, which is something that I want others to understand. When we hold hands and do things together, we are better; every person has the opportunity to participate.



I always go back to the Biblical story of the widow’s mite found in Luke 21:1-4. As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.” Regardless of little or much, when we give, God blesses the giver!


Understanding that each person has the opportunity to provide a brighter future for today and tomorrow should drive the 501(c)(3) organizations or the governmental equivalent that we serve. They should agree with the philosophy of … For Good. Forever.
