Thank you to everyone for another successful El Paso Giving Day!

Thank you El Paso for your incredible generosity for the 5th Annual El Paso Giving Day campaign! This year, more than 5,700 unique donors gave 7,619 gifts to 216 registered nonprofit organizations to help meet the community’s needs. $1,915,572 was raised by October 15th at 11:59 PM, including $300,000 in matching funds and more than $31,000 in incentive prizes.

More than 350 donors were online at midnight on October 15th ready to give! This excitement and steadfastness resulted in 82 organizations receiving matching funds within minutes.  Visit elpasogivingday.org for a list of organizations under “matching funds” and more information on event results.

El Paso Giving Day is an initiative of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, which not only helped nonprofit organizations reach their fundraising goals, but also helped them reach new donors and share messaging about their vital programming. This giving season proved that even in a pandemic, we are El Paso Strong and ready to support one another.

If you are still interested in supporting positive change in our community, the Paso del Norte Community Foundation has a variety of funds that may meet your needs.
