El Paso Community Foundation awards more than $2 million in grants

More than three dozen nonprofits have more to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. The El Paso Community Foundation is awarding more than $2 million in grants to area nonprofits to address critical services such as emergency needs, food insecurity, shelter, healthcare, education, human service, and animal services.

“Nonprofits are under additional stress during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to assist so that they remain viable and survive this crisis. The Grants and Program Committee has allowed some flexibility in most of the grantmaking this cycle,” said Bonita Johnson, EPCF Grants Manager.

The fall granting period will award a total of $2,005,215 in grants to more than three dozen organizations.

Another round of grants will be awarded in the spring. The application period runs from January 1, 2021 to February 1, 2021. Go to our Receive page for grant guidelines and more information.
