who we support

We fund organizations that contribute to the vitality of Arizona with an emphasis on:

  • Civic and economic development
  • Human Services
  • Environment
  • Arts & culture
  • Non-STEM education
  • Programs where employees serve as board members and volunteer. Through our matching gifts program, we match employee donations to qualified non-profit organizations.

 

how we give
Nonprofits within APS service territories may apply once annually through an online application process. Organizations may request funding for multiple events by submitting an all-inclusive application itemizing each event. Requests may include cash and in-kind services such as printing, trash boxes and video production.
 
Applications may be submitted throughout the year and organizations are notified of funding decisions within 40 days of applying. Requests submitted less that 8 weeks prior to an event may be rejected due to insufficient time to review.
 
APS will not accept unsolicited requests to support:
 
  • Individuals
  • Religious organizations, churches and programs that are purely denominational in purpose
  • Private or family foundations
  • Organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability, or veteran status
  • Sports teams or sporting programs
  • Start-up organizations defined as a nonprofit whose ruling year has been granted by the IRS for less than three years
