About this funder:



The Paso del Norte Health Foundation seeks Letters of Intent (LOIs) from eligible organizations for their recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, to prepare for a potential second wave or future crisis, or to transform their operations for future success.


As a short-term response to COVID-19, the Paso del Norte Health Foundation has:

  • Set-up information websites with community resources in English and Spanish.
  • Participated on community committees and task forces related to the immediate response.
  • Produced mass and social media health messages in partnership with the City of El Paso.
  • Granted funding to procure personal protection equipment.
  • Allowed current grant flexibility to address immediate needs.
  • Partnered with the Paso del Norte Community Foundation on grantmaking efforts to support COVID-19-related response including the provision of cleaning supplies for homeless shelters.

As the Paso del Norte region begins to emerge from the devastating immediate impacts of COVID-19, the Health Foundation seeks to support non-profit organizations in their organizational recovery, preparedness, and transformation through grant funding and technical assistance.

Paso del Norte non-profit organizations might consider recovery, preparedness, and transformation in light of Hedrick Consulting’s COVID-19 and the Future of Work: Four Scenarios.

Starting with Letters of Intent (LOIs)

The Paso del Norte Health Foundation asks qualified organizations to complete an LOI to begin the process. LOIs will be reviewed and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Applicants are encouraged to participate in an RFP workshop specific to Recovery, Preparedness and Transformation, and to contact Michael Kelly, Vice President of Programs for the Health Foundation, before submission.
