El Paso Giving Day (EPGD) was created to support a thriving community of nonprofit organizations essential to the health, education, social services, environment, arts and quality of life in our region. 

El Paso Giving Day is an online charitable giving campaign designed to shine a light on the essential services of nonprofit organizations and ignite the spirit of giving in our community. This year's Giving Day will be held on October 14, 2021.

PdNCF does not make any money on the project and does not charge a fee for participation. The Foundation provides coordinating, accounting and administrative support on an in-kind basis.

If you are a nonprofit organization interested in participating or a company interested in sponsorship or matching funds for EPGD 2021, please contact Development Coordinator, Casie Pedregon at 915-218-2644 or at cpedregon@pdnfoundation.org.
