The boards and staff of the Paso del Norte Health Foundation are pleased to share our 2019 Annual Report: Building a Legacy. The online annual report highlights the collaborative work to improve health, education, social services, economic development and quality of life in the region, grants awarded, and an accounting of foundation resources.
In 2019, the Health Foundation invested $11.67 million in grants and charitable expenses in five priority areas: Healthy Eating & Active Living, Tobacco & Alcohol Prevention, Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being, Healthy Kids and Health Leadership to promote health and prevent disease in partnership with 75 grantees and community-based partnerships in our region.
The Paso del Norte Health Foundation, together with the Paso del Norte Community Foundation invested $25.1 million in grants and charitable projects in 2019 and $219.9 million since 1995. The two foundations partnered with the Fundacion Paso del Norte para la Salud y Bienestar, which raised an additional $600,000 to invest in initiatives and collaborations to promote health and well-being in Ciudad Juárez.
The Fundación Paso del Norte para la Salud y Bienestar enters its fifth year of work to improve quality of life in Ciudad Juárez advancing health initiatives and philanthropic partnerships, after being established by the Paso del Norte Health Foundation in 2015.
In 2019, the Fundación granted over $256,000 in matching funds to eight nonprofits that participated in the “Health Challenge Fund.” The Fundación also partnered with FICOSEC and the Municipal Institute for Women to jointly fund programs addressing gender violence in the poorest areas of Juárez; more than $300,000 were granted to six nonprofits, benefitting over 1,900 women affected by family and gender violence. Finally, our sister foundation continued promoting values through play and sport among over 70,000 children through their program “Escuelas de Bienestar” and realized the fourth edition of “Juárez en Acción,” a volunteering and charitable actions campaign that registered a record of 12,405 volunteers.
