After a year of uncertainty, nonprofit organizations in the Paso del Norte Region and the communities they serve faced great challenges. Thanks to the support of the community, local businesses, and major corporations, over 200 local nonprofits received gifts from donors to continue their work.
“Over the past six years, the Paso del Norte Community Foundation has been overwhelmed with how much support the community has shown for local nonprofit organizations,” said Tracy Yellen, CEO of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. “After a challenging year for our community, the amount of donations and participation from the community and major corporate donors is a testament to the work local nonprofit organizations are doing and how appreciated they are.”
Local nonprofit organizations who participated in El Paso Giving Day had the opportunity to earn $2,000 in matching funds through a $100,000 gift from Walmart. Many also received additional prizes through El Paso Giving Day Power Hours and fundraisers with Chipotle, Chuco Relic, Kendra Scott, and Orangetheory Fitness El Paso.
Other prizes and matching funds were underwritten by the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, Helen of Troy, HOY Auto, El Paso Electric, Las Palmas del Sol, Lauterbach, Borchow & Co., Microsoft, Southwest Land Development Services, Inc., Teachers Federal Credit Union, HUNT Companies, FirstLight Federal Credit Union, Texas Gas Service, El Paso SHRM, JP Morgan Chase, Kemp Smith Law, and Pack & Ship Express.
