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 as well as valuable expertise on building a successful organization. Our company efforts are focused on these organizations:
A message from SAMM CEO Nikisha Baker on EFM partnership
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.
The EnCap Flatrock Midstream team looks forward each year to serving at SAMM in many capacities including organizing Christmas gifts for children living at the SAMM Transitional Living and Learning Center (TLLC) and preparing and serving meals to the TLLC residents.
The EFM team had the privilege of working alongside Wesley staff to enhance their community garden by building vegetable and flower beds, planting fruit trees, weeding and mulching. The team also assisted in restocking Wesley’s local food pantry. The goal of their garden and pantry is to provide fresh food to families in need and maximize family food budgets.
The Wesley Community Center is a 115-year-old organization serving the Near Northside community and is located just three miles from EFM’s Houston office.
EFM recently awarded five grants to teachers in the San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD). These grants support outstanding education projects conducted by teachers and teams of SAISD educators.
Located deep in the heart of the Alamo City for more than 100 years, SAISD is Bexar County’s third-largest school district, serving more than 50,000 students. Because SAISD recognizes that education is not “one size fits all", they offer choices for students to pursue special interests and career goals, as well as learning environments that best meet individual needs.
In November 2018, EFM’s Oklahoma staff and their spouses volunteered at the Project 66 Food & Resource Center. Project 66 is a faith-based nonprofit affiliated with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Project 66 distributes food to people who would otherwise go undernourished, including children, the elderly, the disabled, and families facing difficult economic times. Project 66 also connects clients with local resources including community clinics and ways to secure financial assistance with rent or utilities.
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. EFM often helps put together boxes of clothing and food that are delivered to families every week. We also help the HCDBM Summer Academy by preparing meals for the middle and high school students who attend the academy to receive academic, spiritual and emotional help. In August, EFM hosted an end of summer movie party for the Summer Academy students to reward them for all of their hard work over the summer.
United Way of Central Oklahoma is committed to improving the health, safety, education and economic well-being of individual families and EFM is proud to partner with United Way in that effort.
Managing Partner Dennis Jaggi has been active with United Way for many years including serving as Chairman of the Board and on the Long-Range Planning Committee. He is currently on the Board of Directors. In 2017, he was 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.
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.
EnCap Flatrock sponsors 22 children in Misisi, Zambia 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.
EFM Continues Its Support Of Children’s Hospitals
Since 2012, EFM has supported Shriners Hospitals for Children, and for the past two years has been the presenting sponsor of the annual Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic held at Minute Maid Park each spring.
Shriners Hospitals for Children is a health care system dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research, and outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals. Children up to age 18 receive all treatment and services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
Since 2013, EFM has also supported Texas Scottish Rite Hospitals for Children by participating in the G-Man Jackie Sherrill Shootout, an annual golf tournament benefiting multiple charities, including the hospital.
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children treats many of the world's most complex orthopedic cases, as well as certain related arthritic and neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia.
