Early giving period for 4th annual El Paso Giving Day kicks off Thursday

The fourth annual El Paso Giving Day is on track to be the biggest one yet and community members don’t have to wait to donate.

The Paso del Norte Community Foundation, Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare and participating nonprofit organizations will kick off the early giving period for El Paso Giving Day on Thursday, November 7.

“This year, your donation can go further than ever before,” EPGD officials shared via a news release. “Donations made to qualifying nonprofits through the El Paso Giving Day online portal between 12:01am MT on November 7 and 11:59pm MT on November 14 will be  matched by Walmart up to a maximum of $1 million.”

El Paso Giving Day is part of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation’s Community of Philanthropy.  Since its inaugural year in 2016, members of our community have contributed approximately $700,000 to nearly 200 non-profit organizations throughout our community.

The region’s only community-wide day of charitable giving is held annually in November and accepts donations as small as $10.

With the support of local and national organizations, including the Meadows Foundation, El Paso Electric, Hoy Family Auto, Microsoft, Las Palmas del Sol Healthcare and United Healthcare, El Paso Giving Day incentivizes participating non-profit organizations to raise even more money to support their missions through generous matching funds and friendly competitions.
