El Paso Giving Day

We created El Paso Giving Day (EPGD) to support our nonprofit community. The 2019 online community-wide day will be held Thursday, November 14. EPGD provides a platform and social media tools for local nonprofits to tell their stories and connect with new donors and the public. Giving Day provides training to nonprofit organizations in fundraising, donor recruitment and retention as well as communications to support their essential missions.

In 2018, EPGD raised $409,013.63 through 2,747 individual donors, matching gifts and fundraising for 178 nonprofits. Through generous grants received from the Meadows Foundation and the Gannett Foundation, El Paso Giving Day offered 21 incentive prizes that ranged from $1,000 to $2,000 for a total of $22,000.

2018 Underwriters:  El Paso Giving Day is generously supported by the following sponsors: the Gannett Foundation, the Meadows Foundation, the Electric Co., Hunt Family Foundation, Southwest Land Development, Hoy Family Auto, WestStar, Kemp Smith, Microsoft, Andeavor, Pack & Ship Express, Rio Grande Cancer Foundation, Bank of America, ADP, KVIA 7 and iHeartMedia.
