Benevilla, the West Valley’s premier family services nonprofit has again joined the online global fundraising movement called “GivingTuesday.” GivingTuesday is a generosity movement offering an opportunity for people to use their individual power of giving to reimagine a world built upon shared humanity and generosity. It’s a day when everyone comes together to give back to their communities.
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 28th, GivingTuesday is held annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
All donations Benevilla receives as a participant of GivingTuesday will directly support their Home Services Program. The Benevilla Home Services Program helps West Valley older adults and adults with disabilities stay independent in their homes for as long as possible by providing free volunteer supported services such as grocery shopping, assisted transportation to medical appointments, wellness checks, phone pals and more. Services are available short- or long-term to those with limited resources and options.
“Your support for the Benevilla Home Services program helps so many in the community who need a helping hand and companionship” says Joanne Thomson, Benevilla President and CEO. “Last year Benevilla volunteers completed over 2,640 free home services acts of care and compassion significantly improving the quality of life for the recipients. We couldn’t do it without your financial support!”

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day encouraging people to do good. Over the past ten years, this idea has grown into a global movement inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and bring about real change year-round. In 2022, an estimated $3.1 Billion were donated in twenty-four hours in the U.S. alone, a 15% increase over the prior year and a 25% increase since 2020. 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.
