El Paso Giving Day is an online giving event that gives the El Paso community an easy opportunity to give back. The event presents a platform for local nonprofits to increase their donor bases and utilize social media tools to better connect with the public.
In 2017, we partnered with 167 nonprofit organizations for the second El Paso Giving Day, raising $204,967 for participating nonprofits from 1,734 donors, “prize” money from The Meadows Foundation, corporate employee matching gifts from companies like El Paso Electric, and generous underwriting support. We are pleased to report a 100% growth over the first year’s campaign and 40% of gifts coming from first-time donors.
The Paso del Norte Community Foundation 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.
