165 Non-Profits set Ambitious Goal for Second Annual El Paso Giving Day

The second annual El Paso Giving Day is just two weeks away and this year we’re upping the ante on charitable giving in El Paso.

After raising more than $100,000 for local non-profit organizations during last year’s inaugural El Paso Giving Day, local organizations have set the goal of raising $250,000 for more than 165 worthy causes across our community.

“Non-profits do amazing work in our community. Everything from after-school childcare programs to cancer support groups to meals for the homeless and so much more,” said Kimmy May, organizer of El Paso Giving Day.

She adds, “We were inspired by the generosity of El Pasoans during our first-ever event, so we’re excited to more than double our goal this year. It’s ambitious, but we know we can do it if we all work together.”

In addition to a bigger goal, this year’s El Paso Giving Day will feature a new way to give; El Pasoans can give early by logging on to the website starting on November 8, 2017, choosing from over 165 local non-profits and giving early.

They can also give on El Paso Giving Day by logging onto the website on Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
