Benevilla, the West Valley’s premier family services nonprofit has again joined the online global altruism movement called “GivingTuesday.” GivingTuesday is a generosity movement offering an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of giving to remain connected and support their communities. It’s a day when everyone comes together to give back in all forms-acts of kindness, gifts of voice, time, talent, or treasure.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day encouraging people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts. Occurring this year on November 30th, GivingTuesday is held annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
All donations Benevilla receives as a participant of GivingTuesday will directly support our Benevilla Caregiver Support Groups providing a much-needed support system for the variety of caregivers in our community. Caregiver Support Groups offer friends who can relate to caregiver daily ups and downs and professionals who offer support, information, and assistance. Last year alone, over 1,100 caregivers attended Benevilla free Caregiver Support Group sessions and received the support they needed while going through tough life changes. We couldn’t do it without you!
During GivingTuesday at Benevilla your donation will go twice as far. Benevilla is excited to announce a generous anonymous donor will match the first $10,000 raised, dollar-for-dollar, on November 30. To donate for Giving Tuesday, please call 623-584-4999 or visit https://benevilla.org/donation/.
Started by the community and for the community in 1981, Benevilla is a not-for-profit human services agency dedicated to enhancing the lives of West Valley residents by providing care services for older adults, intellectually disabled adults, children, and families.

In its 9th year, GivingTuesday is a social media movement to celebrate and encourage charitable giving to bring about real change in our communities. Supporters gave an estimated $2.47B during the 24 hours of GivingTuesday 2020 in the U.S. alone, more than all but one US philanthropic foundation gave in a full year during 2019. GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and give back in better, smarter ways to charities and causes they celebrate like Benevilla to help create a better world. We hope you will take part in the GivingTuesday movement and consider Benevilla as your charity of choice.
