Make a difference on Giving Tuesday 2022

- Roxanne De La Rosa

This year’s Giving Tuesday will mark its 10th year of giving back to our communitie­s and to those in need.

The day of charitable giving started in 2012 and has grown steadily on social media with #GivingTues­day serving as a call to action to donate money, time, skills and acts of kindness.

The group credits the day for a net-increase in donations nationwide. In 2021, a total of $2.7 billion was donated within a 24-hour period in the U.S. alone.

How you can help

Giving back through The Arizona Republic’s Season for Sharing campaign extends your donation further, helping hundreds of Valley nonprofits. For 29 years, the Republic has worked through the Season for Sharing campaign to bring attention to those in great need – and to make a difference.

Last year, 164 organizati­ons benefited from the $1.8 million raised by the campaign. The Republic pays all administra­tive costs, so 100% of contributi­ons go directly to nonprofits that help struggling children and families, improve educationa­l skills and serve older adults. Nonprofits that received Season for Sharing grants last year included:

● Back To School Clothing Drive received $10,000 for new school uniforms and supplies for about 5,000 children from low-income families in greater Phoenix.

● Ballet Arizona received $7,500 to provide accessible dance instructio­n to 50 adults living with Parkinson’s disease.

● Arizona Food Bank Network received $40,000 to help address hunger in Arizona by providing fresh fruits and vegetables to vulnerable population­s.

Since Season for Sharing began, nearly $72 million has been raised for nonprofits in Maricopa County and around the state.
