The El Paso Community Foundation relies on donors like you to contribute to and support our community projects.

For Good. For El Paso. Forever.

Planned Giving - Bequests

A bequest is more commonly known as a ‘gift of property,’ which is given by will, from an individual’s estate. Often referred to as a ‘legacy’ gift – a bequest oftentimes is a transformational estate gift given to a nonprofit organization to enhance the mission and scope of that organization.

Make a lasting investment in El Paso’s future. Your planned gift will enable us to carry out our programs and services, which benefit all El Pasoans, for many years to come.
