Monday, November 10th, 2014 -- As a Paso del Norte Foundation Challenge Fund event, FEMAP’s 2014 International Gala qualified for a matching grant for $100,000. In an effort to help meet their organization’s mission of increasing resources available to improve well-being in the Paso del Norte region, the Paso del Norte Foundation established the Paso del Norte Foundation Challenge Fund (“Challenge Fund”) to inspire new and increased giving in the Paso del Norte region and help non-profit organizations leverage giving by offering an up to 1:2 match for contributions made during selected sponsored events/appeals. FEMAP Foundation will use these funds to benefit ValorArte para Niñas y Niños and the Mobile Health Clinic in Cd. Juarez.
“The Paso del Norte Foundation and its Board of Directors have been great friends to FEMAP,” says Anna Alemán, FEMAP Foundation Executive Director. “We are delighted at their support of FEMAP’s important work in our bi-national region.”
