The Women’s Fund of El Paso is an all-volunteer organization established in 2004 to connect women with resources available in the community and offer educational advancement and leadership development through scholarships.
Funding from El Paso Giving Day will go towards scholarships for underserved women and girls. These scholarships will provide tuition support, books and supplies, as well as childcare for their dependents.
Scholarships are incredibly important to the underserved women and girls —they open the gateway to higher education. While each scholarship recipient has their own story, it’s a universal truth that financial support empowers these scholars to complete their degrees and achieve their dreams. By supporting scholarships for these women, you provide them with the opportunity to become self-sufficient. Your support matters.
The mission of the Women’s Fund of El Paso is to promote access to funding, information and networking to help women receive a better education, develop critical leadership skills and achieve personal economic growth. An aspect that differentiates the Women’s Fund of El Paso from other organizations is that it provides funding for childcare.
Since its inception, the Women’s Fund has awarded 145 scholarships totalling over $200,000; 30 scholarships for professional development opportunities for teens; and $10,000 in giving circles for education and leadership development.
None of this would be possible without the donations and support of our generous sponsors and individuals like yourself! Every donation made during El Paso Giving Day will go directly to provide scholarships to women in our community, helping and empowering them to advance and acheive their personal and professional goals. Thank you
