El Paso Giving Day is here and you can help your favorite local non-profits earn extra donations and prizes through the El Paso Giving Day website. Today is the 5th anniversary of El Paso Giving Day, and organizers are celebrating by giving donors new ways to help local non-profits they're donating to win extra money. Established by the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, El Paso Giving Day promotes awareness about local non-profits and their causes, as well as encouraging the community to donate. October is the month where many Americans will begin their philanthropic giving for the holiday season and El Paso Giving Day is the perfect way to start.

El Paso Giving Day kicked off at midnight, and additional prizes have been awarded to non-profits since the giving began. If you are still going to donate, there are ways you can help organizations get extra funding from the event. Check out some of the additional prizes below and see if there is one that can work with you and your giving schedule today.
