Each contribution to the Benicia Community Action Council makes a wide range of support services possible to the less fortunate members of our community.
Administrative costs are kept to a bare minimum through the generosity of caring Benicians who share the Benicia CAC’s commitment. This means that your tax deductible contribution can be used as an investment in people and their hope for a brighter, productive future.
