Introducing: Mission Fund for Health

While the Paso del Norte Health Foundation has over $200 million in assets, the reality is that the health needs  in the Paso del Norte region far exceed the resources available to address them. The Paso del Norte Foundation will support the initiatives of the Health Foundation including: 1) Health Eating Active Living, 2) Tobacco and Alcohol Control, 3) Mental and Emotional Well-being, 4) Healthy Relationships and 5) Health Leadership. Donors can make gifts generally to support the Mission Fund for Health, or specifically to any of the Health Foundation's priority initiatives, or to a fund supporting health-related issues like economic development, education and quality of life.
