About This Event

Join the virtual fun with games, auctions and entertainment!

On behalf of the Border AIDS Partnership (BAP), celebrating over 26 years of community service, we are writing to request your support of our first annual ART IS LIFE virtual art auction to be held Friday, December 4, from 6:00-7:30pm. As you know, many non-profits throughout the borderland have been affected significantly by the current Covid-19 pandemic. Like many other organizations, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, all our live fund-raising events for 2020 have been cancelled. Over 90% of the funds we raise to support organizations fighting HIV and AIDS come from live events. This year’s virtual art auction will be the only fundraiser we host, so the success of this event is critical in raising funds so that we may continue supporting the many organizations that depend on our financial support to survive.

Border AIDS Partnership

The El Paso Community Foundation and the US/Mexico Border Health Association partnered in 1994 to create a local HIV/AIDS partnership that would provide assistance to nonprofit organizations in the surrounding region working on this critical health problem. The resulting collaboration, with support from the National AIDS Fund (now AIDS United), created the BAP, a bi-national and tri-state funding collaborative that has been providing funding for HIV/AIDS education and prevention activities in El Paso, Texas, Southern New Mexico, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. In January 2007, the Border AIDS Partnership received its 501c3 letter of determination and continues the critical work of funding community based organizations in our region, as an independent nonprofit. Since 1996, the Border AIDS Partnership has distributed, in the form of effective grants, more than $1.8 million to support innovative HIV prevention programs.
