The PdNCF is honored to work with such generous individuals who help us continue to grow our community of philanthropy.

Thank you to Paso Del Norte for not only fortifying my love for helping my community but the tools to do it. Volunteering through N.E.T.W.O.R.K (North East El Paso Working to Optimize Resources and Knowledge) I learned about planning. Writing requests and proposals, budgeting and collaborative working. I was 19 best couple of years. Many memories made. I am now in San Diego using what i have learned.
Friends! While most of us are required to isolate and stay at home, some of our friends and neighbors are doing important work taking care of those in need. Our caregivers, first responders and medical professionals need our help to stay safe and protected! Please consider donating to the PdNCF's new fund for medical supplies. https://pdnfoundation.org/give-to-a-fund/ep-medical-equipment-fund A number of fine folks in our community are already finding creative ways to design, 3D print, sew, fabricate, and produce much needed protection equipment for those working with the sick and those most at risk from the virus. These funds will help procure much-needed equipment and supplies for printing/making masks, face shields, ventilator parts, etc. Let's make sure we stay ahead of the demand and protect our community as best we can. Give a little, give a lot. Thanks!
Great message!
Please help the families of the victims of the El Paso mass shooting of August 3, 2019, by making a small donation.
Thank you Helen of Troy for your contribution.
