The Foundation is pleased to announce the inaugural grant awards from the new Loaves & Fishes Fund.  

Inspired by someone who once said, “I have faith that God can work miracles even with my few loaves and just a couple of fish,” the founders of the Loaves and Fishes Fund seek to be like the young lad who simply gave the Lord what he had - small though it seemed to be - and let God do with it what He will.

The Loaves & Fishes Fund was established in 2015 to support agencies that provide dignity and hope to the most vulnerable in our community, not only by helping in emergency situations but by finding long-term solutions to poverty and homelessness. 

A special thanks to the founders of the Loaves & Fishes Fund for establishing the fund and inspiring others so that together, as they have stated so eloquently, our response is not, "What are we among so many?" but "Come, and eat." 

After a competitive RFP process, the Foundation is pleased to recognize the 2016 grant recipients:

  • El Paso Border Youth Athletic Association
  • Center Against Sexual & Family Violence
  • Opportunity Center for the Homeless
  • Project Vida 
  • Rescue Mission of El Paso
  • Villa Maria Shelter
