Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on Nov. 29, 2022 and every day.

This year, there are two ways to support Banner Health in your community:

  • Banner Alzheimer's Institute: 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease and more than 11 million others are providing unpaid care for a loved one with the disease. November is Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Caregivers Support Month, a time to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, advance research efforts to find a cure, and recognize the extraordinary contributions of family caregivers.

    Support those with Alzheimer’s and their care partners this Giving Tuesday with a tax-deductible donation to the nonprofit Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, headquartered right here in Arizona. Here, the focus isn’t on grief. The focus isn’t on fear. The focus is on the groundbreaking research and care that will get us to the goal of ending Alzheimer’s before another generation is lost. With your support, we can accelerate efforts needed to stop the disease and provide care to patients and families now. Please give.

  • Diamond Children’s Play Zone in Tucson: Give hospitalized kids in Tucson the gift of play this Giving Tuesday with a tax-deductible donation to bring a Play Zone to Diamond Children’s Medical Center. The Play Zone will be a bright, open space where no medical procedures or treatments take place, giving kids a supportive environment away from their hospital room to play, learn, socialize, express themselves creatively, and explore their emotions. Child Life specialists will help young patients build coping skills to decrease anxiety, support their psychosocial well-being, reduce trauma, and prepare for procedures and treatments—empowering them during a time of fear and uncertainty.

    Thanks to our friends at Fishkind, Bakewell, Maltzman, Hunter & Associates Eye Care and Surgery Center, all gifts up to $15,000 will be matched dollar for dollar—helping your generosity go even further for kids in our community.

    Your support will bring to life this special place for kids! Please give.
