GivingTuesday is a global effort to inspire people to collaborate, give, and celebrate generosity. It’s what the El Paso Community Foundation is all about.
Celebrate the 10th annual GivingTuesday on November 30. Make a donation or get involved in one of the Community Foundation’s funds, projects or affiliate organizations that make the El Paso Borderland a better place. Four of them are highlighted here. Donate or get involved today!

Wyler Aerial Tramway
The iconic 60-year-old attraction, the only tramway in Texas, will be reimagined as a bigger and better experience. A public survey found strong support for the return of the shuttered tramway. The El Paso Community Foundation is helping raise funds to bring back its spectacular views of three states and two countries. Donate at epcf.org/tramway.
The Intersection of Possibilities
A regional economic development initiative for El Paso, Ciudad Juárez and Las Cruces, it broadcasts to the world the full scope of what this region has to offer. It is led by the Borderplex Alliance, an advocacy organization working to bring jobs, hope, and opportunity to the Borderland. Donate at epcf.org/intersection.
El Paso International Music Foundation
EPIMF works in and out of the spotlight to improve the lives of music makers in the borderland. It organized a benefit concert for victims of the 2019 mass shooting, led the effort to gain El Paso’s Texas Music Friendly community designation, showcases local artists, and offers programs that promote health and financial matters.
