Please support the program by donating to a great cause and join us for a spectacular event.

The funding will help the youth from El Paso’s Segundo Barrio and Chamizal neighborhoods enjoy the annual summer camp where they learn leadership literary and basketball skills while celebrating border culture.
We need our supporters of Basketball in the Barrio to consider a philanthropic $50 gift ticket ($100 per couple) to attend. Your donation will establish a permanent endowment at the El Paso Community Foundation, the interest from which, will all go to the supplies such as materials for writing and creating their own books,  basketballs, Basketball in the Barrio shirts and Cinco Puntos Press bilingual children’s books.
If you are interested in honoring a family or friend’s name with a separate and larger gift, you can endow a “Forever Fund" at the Community Foundation.
Please contact
