Benevilla will be participating in the 6th-annual GIVE65 Event, presented by Home Instead Charities, the first and only crowd-fundraising platform exclusively devoted to helping nonprofits raise money online for programs and services that are helping aging adults live with independence and dignity. This year, the event kicks off Tuesday, July 13th at 7:00AM and runs until 12:00 AM July 16th. During this year’s Give65 Event, Benevilla is eligible for up to $5,000 in matching grants. An additional $10,000 in financial rewards is available to the agency raising the most money or has the most unique donors to inspire giving on a greater level.
Benevilla is raising funds for their Home Services program helping West Valley older adults and adults with disabilities remain independent and living in their homes for as long as possible. This program provides free volunteer assisted services such as grocery shopping, assisted transportation to medical appointments, phone pals and more.
The senior population continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, yet the pace of government and philanthropic support for seniors is not. Often, public funding for services and programs benefiting seniors is the first to fall victim to budget cuts. This has become even more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic. At Benevilla, we know this all too well. Our many community services and programs continue to increase in demand in relation to the expanding needs of our senior population. We must rely heavily on the generous financial support of the community to continue providing these programs and services helping seniors to remain independent at home and age with dignity.
We are kindly asking everyone who wants to support the mission of Benevilla to visit our GIVE65 fundraising website at www.give65.org/Benevilla.
