Every year, the El Paso Marathon Foundation invites non-profit organizations to apply for consideration as beneficiaries of proceeds from the El Paso Marathon Foundation events scheduled for 2017.
Priority ranking is given to organizations that are willing to assist the Foundation in the production of these events via volunteer support.
Funding eligibility is limited to organizations with documented non-profit 501(c)(3) status that are located in El Paso, Texas. The applicant organization must have a governing Board of Directors and an Executive Director who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the organization.
Applicants must be in good financial standing and must have the appropriate organizational capabilities to receive and administer grant funds. Eligible organizations can apply at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to help inform the community that its annual flagship event is made up of multiple races and not just a marathon, the El Paso Marathon Foundation enlisted CultureSpan Marketing to rebrand the event.
In September 2016, the El Paso Marathon Foundation proudly revealed that the El Paso Marathon is now Springfoot Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K.
The El Paso Marathon Foundation’s brand includes a reinvigorated mission to organize a first class marathon, half marathon and 5K that promote health and fitness in the community, brings tourism to the region of El Paso and provides support to local and national non-profit organizations.
