Community

EnCap Flatrock is a family-oriented company, and we believe we have a responsibility to use our time, talent and treasure to help make the world around us a better place. While monetary assistance is important, the members of our team also volunteer on behalf of our company and as individuals, providing hands-on assistance to those in need. Our company efforts are focused on these organizations:

Family Legacy

Feeding Children Everywhere

Family Legacy is a Texas organization that connects American families with the orphaned and vulnerable children of Zambia to proclaim the Gospel, transform lives and rescue orphans.

Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) mobilizes thousands of volunteers to assemble meals for people in 49 countries around the world.

In November 2016, employees from EnCap Flatrock Midstream and its portfolio company, Stakeholder Midstream, partnered with Family Legacy and (FCE) to prepare 25,000 healthy meals. The meals went directly to the poverty-stricken area of Misisi, Zambia, where Encap Flatrock sponsors 22 children to attend private Legacy Academy schools. These children receive schooling for one year and much-needed nutrition. The Academy provides orphans a solid spiritual and academic base through Christian education that helps break the cycle of economic poverty that has plagued Zambia for decades. 

Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries

Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries (HCDBM) is a Regional Resource Center located in Boerne, Texas. HCBDM works with churches, agencies, sponsors and individuals to transform the lives of those living in poverty. We often help put together boxes of clothing and food that are delivered to families every week. We also help the HCDBM Summer Academy by cooking breakfast for middle and high school students who attend the academy to receive needed academic help. 

SAMMinistries

Located in San Antonio, SAMMinistries is an interfaith ministry that helps the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless attain self-sufficiency by offering, with dignity and compassion, shelter, housing and services. Assistance is tailored to best meet the needs of each individual and family.

Several times a year, we prepare and serve dinner to more than 100 weekly attendees of the SAMM Transitional Living and Learning Center (TLLC) life skills class for families. In December 2016, the EnCap Flatrock Midstream team prepared an amazing BBQ feast for a weekly class and took time to visit with TLLC residents to learn about the challenges they face. 

When SAMM receives toys and clothing at Christmas for the children living at the TLLC, Encap Flatrock teams sort through the donated gifts and create gift bags for each child that matches items on their wish lists. The children living at the TLLC get to experience the joy and excitement of Christmas as they unwrap the gifts that were lovingly donated, sorted and wrapped by those in the San Antonio community.

United Way of Central Oklahoma

United Way of Central Oklahoma is committed to improving the health, safety, education and economic well-being of individual families.

Managing Partner Dennis Jaggi has been active with United Way for many years including serving as Chairman of the Board and serving on the Long Range Planning Committee. He is currently on the Board of Directors, and was recently awarded the Richard H. Clements Lifetime Achievement Award, which honors individuals who have a lifelong dedication to volunteering, leadership and philanthropy not only to United Way, but to the community as a whole. 

In May 2013, a massive tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma, south of Oklahoma City. Twenty-four people lost their lives and there was an estimated $2 billion in property damage. Houses, schools and businesses were destroyed. The State of Oklahoma coordinated relief funding through the United Way of Central Oklahoma. This money was used to meet the long-term medical, emotional and educational needs of tornado victims.

Giving Back on Their Own Time

Volunteering to improve lives is a company value shared by all the members of our team. We all give significant personal time to community schools, churches, athletic teams and nonprofits.


Brett Knowles, Associate, Houston

Brett volunteers with e3 Partners and Living Water International.

e3 Partners
e3 Partners equips God’s people to evangelize the world and establish His Church. Through week-long mission trips, participants form religious parishes, heighten AIDS awareness and promote programs to prevent malaria. They provide critical healthcare to people and facilitate economic opportunities, agricultural projects and recycling initiatives.

In December 2014 Brett participated in a mission trip to Tarapoto, Peru where participants ran an eye glass clinic. 

Living Water International
Living Water International, headquartered in Stafford, Texas, demonstrates the love of God by helping communities acquire clean water and experience the Gospel. Since 1990, Living Water has completed more than 17,000 water projects, mainly involving drilling a new water well and/or repairing an existing well/pump via short mission trips to South America, parts of the Caribbean and Africa.

In March 2017, Brett will join seven others on a trip to Rivas, Nicaragua to help drill a new, clean water well for a local village and spread the Gospel.


Dennis McCanless, Partner, San Antonio

Dennis is active in the Watchdog Program at his daughter’s school, a national program to get dads more involved in school activities and to help provide another layer of security at the school. Dads, grandfathers and uncles spend a day accompanying children through their class schedule helping teachers with whatever they need.

“The elementary school kids really get a kick out of dads being in their classroom,” said Dennis McCanless.  “Great program for dads to help out.”


Bill Waldrip, Managing Partner, San Antonio

In addition to the work our employees do with SAMMinistries, Bill donates additional time to the organization. He serves on the SAMM Board of Directors and was recently appointed chair of the Development Committee where he is assisting with fundraising activities.

Bill serves dinner prepared by the SAMM Board to clients living in the ministry’s transitional Housing Program.
