Friday morning, Paso del Norte Community Foundation officials announced that their organization received a $100,000 grant from The Meadows Foundation.
PDN Community Foundation officials say the grant will support community response related to the impact of COVID-19.
“We are so grateful to The Meadows Foundation for their impactful contributions to the COVID-19 Response Fund. We know this is a difficult time for everyone and appreciate this gift to help make a real difference in the lives of so many in our community,” says Tracy J. Yellen, Paso del Norte Community Foundation CEO.
The El Paso COVID-19 Response Fund was established in partnership with the United Way of El Paso County to support nonprofit organizations serving the most vulnerable in our community-including the homeless, elderly and food insecure.
The Meadows Foundations joins other individuals, corporations and foundations making resources available to one of eight different COVID-19 Response Funds in the PDN Community Foundation.
The Meadows Foundation was established in 1948 by Al and Virginia Meadows, and seeks improve the quality and circumstances of life for Texans now and for future generations.
Established in 2013, the Paso del Norte Community Foundation is a public charity to support the philanthropic goals of individuals, families, corporations, foundations and nonprofit organizations to improve health, education, social services, economic development and quality of life in the entire region.
