Local non-profit organizations invited to participate in fourth annual El Paso Giving Day

Local non-profit organizations are once again invited to participate in El Paso Giving Day, the region’s only community-wide day of charitable giving.

EPGD is a 24-hour online charitable giving drive which will take place on Thursday, November 14, 2019.

“This year’s goal is to work with 175 nonprofit groups to help them raise funds in support of their individual missions,” EPGD officials shared. “which collectively, make the Paso del Norte region a better place to live.”

Leaders of local non-profits can register to participate through Thursday, October 14, 2019. The Paso del Norte Community Foundation hosts the annual event to encourage non-profits to build their donor bases, engage first-time and younger donors and support worthy philanthropic causes across our region.

El Paso Giving Day also provides registered non-profits with the learning tools to build upon their success. The Paso del Norte Community Foundation provides the nonprofits with webinars and online trainings.

In 2018, El Paso Giving Day attracted more than 2,700 donors who raised approximately $337,000 for non-profit organizations across our region.

El  Paso  Giving  Day  is  part  of  the  Paso  del  Norte  Foundation’s  Community  of  Philanthropy.  Since  its  inception  in  2016,  members  of  our  community  have  contributed   approximately  $637,000  to  more  than  175  non-profit  organizations  through our  community.

Our  region’s only  community-wide  day  of  charitable giving  is  held  annually  on   November  15  and  accepts  donations  as  small  as  $10.

With  the  outside  support  of  national   groups,  including  The  Meadows  Foundation,  El Paso  Giving  Day  incentivizes  participating  non-profit  organizations  to   raise  even  more  money  through friendly  competitions  each  year.  For  more  information,  visit the website.
