There are many ways to give to the Paso del Norte Foundation.
Current and Planned Gifts. The Foundation accepts gifts and pledges of current assets and planning gifts including bequests, appreciated securities, real property, life insurance, retirement plans, and charitable remainder trusts. Donors may establish a named fund with gifts or pledges of $5,000 over a five year period. Donors may designate their gift to the fund of their choice. Prospective donors are encouraged to speak with Foundation staff to insure that the Foundation can accomplish the donor’s charitable goals.
Memorials and Gifts. The Foundation accepts contributions in honor and memory of family and friends. Undesignated honorary/memorial gifts will be placed in the Foundation’s Mission Fund. Designated memorial funds are used as specified by the donor. The Foundation will send a thank you/tax letter to the donor making the honorary/memorial gift and a letter of acknowledgement to the family/friend that a gift has been made.
