Spring is the season of giving, and the Benicia Human Services Board (HSB) is providing a chance for people to give. For the next 21 days, the HSB is hosting an online fundraiser for its Human Services Fund in the hopes of raising $5,000 before the deadline.
The HSB oversees the Human Services Fund, a charitable reserve that distributes funds to nonprofit agencies that provide support to Benicians in need. Each month, the HSB goes over each grantee’s service goals and objectives and continually provides fundraising to keep each program going.
This year, the HSB has opted for a “Spring into Action” campaign by encouraging people to donate online through CauseVox, a crowdfunding website aimed mainly to provide support to nonprofits.
