The Paso del Norte Foundation’s third annual El Paso Giving Day is back, more than 220 organizations participating this year
“El Paso Giving Day is about proving the power of what we can do if we all work together,” said Tracy Yellen, President and CEO of the Paso del Norte Foundation. “On El Paso Giving Day, small donations can make a big difference; the minimum donation to participate is just $10!”
To participate, donors need to visit ElPasoGivingDay.org, choose from among dozens of trusted local non-profit organizations, and give.
There is also a unique way that donors can make their donation go even farther. By being a little strategic about when they give, donors can help their favorite non-profit organizations get in on $16,000 in bonus prizes, sponsored by the Meadows Foundation of Texas.
The non-profit organization with the most early giving donations during one of six Power Hours will get a $1,000 bonus. Those Power Hours run from 6-7am, 10-11am, 1-2pm, 3-4pm, 7-8pm and 10-11pm.
Other bonuses include prizes for the most donations and those with the most donors and best attendance at training sessions.
As yet another bonus, the Paso del Norte Foundation has teamed up with Anson 11 (303 North Oregon Street) to make it even more rewarding. Donors need to simply print out their receipt showing they made a donation to El Paso Giving Day, take it to Anson 11 and patrons will get 15 percent off one appetizer. This offer is perfect for unwinding after work, as it runs from 4pm to 7pm.
Since El Paso Giving Day’s inception in 2016, members of the community have contributed approximately $300,000 to more than 165 nonprofit organizations through our community.
El Paso Giving Day is a fund of the Paso del Norte Foundation; and for more information, visit the website.
