Information you should know about COVID-19 and how you can help


A message from the CEO on COVID-19

The Paso del Norte Community Foundation is deeply committed to the health and safety of the residents of our region.  We have established the El Paso COVID-19 Response Fund in partnership with the United Way of El Paso to support nonprofit organizations serving the most vulnerable in our community - including the homeless and elderly populations.  The El Paso Food and Beverage Workers Fund was established by a group of local service industry volunteers to support a grant to Workforce Solutions Borderplex to provide relief to food and beverage workers in El Paso, Sunland Park and Santa Teresa, New Mexico who have been laid off or working significantly reduced hours due to a temporary closure as a result of the pandemic.  The Paso del Norte Health Foundation created the El Paso COVID-19 Information Hub to help individuals and families navigate COVID-19, including important health, education and economic resources.  The website is updated daily.
