El Paso Giving Day 

The Paso del Norte Foundation started the annual El Paso Giving Day in 2016 to attract and grow support for nonprofit organizations in the region.  El Paso Giving Day is an online, social media-driven giving event designed to make giving easy. The 24-hour campaign provides a platform and social medial tools for local nonprofits to reach new donors and better connect with the community.

The next El Paso Giving Day is set for November 15, 2018.  Learn more.
