Time to RISE

“I decided to become an active member of RISE to meet up and coming civic leaders who were interested in being involved with the community. In just a year, I have met individuals involved through United Way's RISE and the El Paso Young Leaders Society (YLS) programs who have inspired and encouraged me to continue participating. I continue to learn from this pool of talented professionals and feel the need to share with other rising young professionals how important it is to get more involved and give back to El Paso.” –Jose G. De La Cruz, RISE Affiliate 

Annual Gift - $100 ​

If you're between 21 and 30 years old, and ready to #GiveBackHangOut for your community, you've come to the right place. 

Please note there are no member fees. To participate, individuals must make a $100 donation that goes directly to United Way's Community Impact Fund, which supports programs throughout the community that help El Pasoans in the areas of health, education, and basic needs.

Workplace Giving ​

Through workplace giving, employees of area businesses can donate a portion of their paycheck to United Way.


If you're an individual who donates to United Way through your employer's workplace giving, your contribution applies toward your membership. Contact us to confirm your contribution and membership.

If you currently don't participate in workplace giving but know your company is involved in a United Way campaign, please visit with your HR representative to fill out a pledge form.
