This truly is a foundation who works to make the community and the lives of those living in the El Paso - Juarez area a better place. The board and staff strive to make sure that every dollar donated is used efficiently and effectively. One of my favorite funds the FWF has are scholarship funds to help local high schoolers go to college. The scholarships are given Junior year and are often the extra push to not only ensure graduation from high school, but further the search for additional scholarships. The FWF is a community resource. I truly can't imagine El Paso with out it.
