One of the most effective ways to make a meaningful and lasting impact in the community is by starting a charitable giving fund.

Starting a fund is simple. You can designate your gifts to support the charity(ies) of your choice and receive an immediate tax deduction.  You can put your energy into what you care about, while leaving the administration to us.

We believe in making philanthropy as easy and convenient as possible. No gift is too small and no dream is too big.

Types of Funds

Multiple types of funds allow you to make a lasting impact.

El Paso Giving Day

El Paso Giving Day is an online charitable giving campaign designed to shine a light on the essential work of nonprofit organizations and ignite the spirit of giving in our community. Founded in 2016 by the Paso del Norte Community Foundation and partner organizations, El Paso Giving Day has raised nearly $4 million from thousands of donors for over 200 nonprofit organizations.

In 2020, more than 5,700 unique donors gave 7,619 gifts to 216 registered organizations. $1,915,572 was raised by October 15, 2020 at 11:59 PM, including $300,000 in matching funds and more than $31,000 in incentive prizes.

Sponsors and supporters of our 5th anniversary of El Paso Giving Day: Walmart, El Paso Electric, Diageo Americas, Inc./Glazer’s Beer and Beverage, United Healthcare, Lauterbach, Borschow & Co., Microsoft, Marathon Petroleum Corporation, Southwest Land Development Services, Bank of America, The Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation, Hoy Family Auto, WestStar, the NMSU Arrowhead Center, Texas Gas Service, Pack & Ship Express, Trade Border Logistics, KempSmith Law and The Postal Solution.

The PDNCF invests more than $35,000 a year in in-kind support to cover the costs of coordinating, accounting, and administering El Paso Giving Day.
