Rio Grande Cancer Foundation
For over 10 years, Makios has consistently donated a portion of our profits to The Rio Grande Cancer Foundation. We believe in the power of communities and businesses to do real good by contributing to the families in our area who have borne such devastating burdens as cancer. This fantastic organization is committed to making this possible.
For almost twenty years, the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation has served the needs of the El Paso cancer community with the goal to reduce the burden of cancer in and among our community. They were founded in 1996, funded by the sale of the El Paso Cancer Treatment Center. RGCF supports programs within and outside of their organization which meet the huge needs of cancer survivors and their families. From the educational resources of The Green House—their cancer resource centers located within the El Paso Public Library system—to the Four Seasons Women's Program, the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation serves all The Colors of Cancer. They are led by a voluntary board of directors who believe in the mission and dedicate talent and energy to maintaining and growing such programs and services. With their awesome oversight, the investment portfolio from which they get much of their financial support has allowed the Foundation to contribute over $8 million in programs and services since their beginning.
We thank you in advance for visiting their website at https://www.rgcf.org to learn more and give back.
El Paso Community Foundation
As in previous years, Makios will continue contributing to the Makios Technology Fund in 2017 through the El Paso Community Foundation. We created the fund to help provide financial support for high school students aspiring to pursue IT studies at the college level that otherwise would not be able to afford it.
