Giving El Paso Day

Giving El Paso Day

El Paso Giving Day is a 24-hour charitable giving drive designed to ignite the spirit of giving across our region to support causes in the community where we live, work and play. The inaugural El Paso Giving Day will take place on Tuesday, November 15, 2016.

Our community’s first annual Giving Day is the result of partnerships and relationships developed between corporations, foundations, and non-profits from every part of our community. Together we can make El Paso an even greater place to live – for everyone! Visit the main website below to learn more.

Consider making a gift that day to Reynolds Home. The questions and answers which follow will explain how the Giving El Paso website works.  Read about our 2016 solar Panel Christmas Project and make your donation count for a lot more than you expect!
