|The Frontera Women’s Foundation (FWF) is located in El Paso, TX and is ONE of only TWO Women’s Funds in the State of Texas. FWF is a new philanthropic endeavor initiated by a group of women from El Paso, Texas. The FWF's mission is to improve the conditions and status for women and girls living along the U.S.-Mexico border and thereby foster significant social and economic change in their communities as a whole. The FWF will focus on raising money to fund non-profit organizations that serve and work with low-income women in the areas of economic development, work skills development and education, healthcare and violence prevention.

|Located on the border in El Paso, Texas, the FEMAP Foundation is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping FEMAP-SADEC, whose mission is to raise the quality of life among people living in poverty in Mexico, through a variety of health, economic, and social services. Our foundation is equally committed to improving conditions on both sides of the border, through the support of many of FEMAP-SADEC’s programs. Through a Family Hospital, we have helped to build sustainable health programs, which focus on disease prevention, immunization campaigns, family planning, drug and alcohol-abuse prevention, and HIV/AIDS prevention. We have funded many “community banks,” which are small groups of entrepreneurs who develop their own microenterprises. We are also committed to the environment, to research, and to education in our border region.

|The El Paso, southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juárez, region, located at the convergence of ancient desert trade routes, is the largest binational metropolitan community in the world.
Few cities are faced with such unique opportunities and challenges. The overwhelming needs of the area were part of the impetus for establishing the El Paso Community Foundation in 1977.
Today, the El Paso Community Foundation provides a wide-range of charitable services in the region, through its multiple roles as a convener, grantmaker and resource organization to the community.
