The Paso del Norte Community Foundation introduces the second annual Gator Tank — a social impact competition in a fast-pitch style to help local nonprofit organizations exercise their skills and gain the resources needed to support their missions.

"We are so grateful to our second-year cohort, mentors, judges, and sponsors and partners for supporting Gator Tank and the Paso del Norte Community Foundation!," Andrea Macias, Development Coordinator, said. 

The PdNCF provides the understanding, engagement, and leadership required to make a difference in the lives of the residents of our region through four priority areas including nonprofit investment. We recognize that nonprofit organizations require assistance in creating opportunities for growth through capacity-building training, awareness, and diversifying streams of funding to continue major programming.

Gator Tank provides nonprofit organizations the opportunity to train, build capital, and expand their missions and programs that support our most vulnerable communities. This unique fundraising model will bring together nonprofit organizations, mentors, and funders to think creatively and strategically in the hopes of not only winning monetary prizes but to expand their impact within our shared communities.
