El Paso Giving Day training for nonprofits

July 16, 2018

El Paso Giving Day is right around the corner and the Paso del Norte Foundation has several ways for local nonprofit organizations to take full advantage of our region’s only community-wide day of charitable giving.

This year, El Paso Giving Day will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2018.

In preparation, the Paso del Norte Foundation is offering a set of free training seminars and online webinars for participating nonprofits, beginning in August. The seminars are aimed to help staff and volunteers for El Paso’s nonprofits to get the most out of El Paso Giving Day.

Interested nonprofits still have time to participate in El Paso Giving Day by visiting elpasogivingday.org

The three training seminars include How to Succeed at El Paso Giving Day in 10 hours or Less, Craft a Winning Email Campaign and Building Social Media Savvy. Live Webinars include Getting Ready for El Paso Giving Day and Final Steps to Success for El Paso Giving Day.

In addition, nine 15-minute training videos are available to area non-profits at elpasogivingday.org. Those training videos include Giving Day Basics, Creating the Perfect Profile and Goal Setting Strategies.

As an incentive for nonprofits to participate in training sessions, the Paso del Norte Foundation is giving a chance to win additional funds to the organization that participates in the most training sessions.
