Powering Arizona is one thing. But empowering Arizona communities with possibility is another. Along with more than 120,000 hours volunteered by our employees, we partner with worthy community organizations and programs dedicated to improving the lives of Arizonans.

APS Community Tree Program

We are committed to preserving our planet through environmental stewardship, this includes helping communities to enrich their green spaces and expand shade tree canopy by planting trees. That’s why we’ve established the APS Community Tree Program, which offers grant funding to qualified organizations for community-based tree planting projects in vulnerable areas within the APS service territory, which includes 11 of the state’s 15 counties.

Powering Possibilities



Power to Learn


A quality education can open up a world of opportunities. Opportunities that change individuals and all the lives they affect. Which is why we dedicate a significant portion of our community dollars to helping students, teachers and families in Arizona.


Power to Thrive


The future of Arizona is dependent on the success of strong, healthy communities that ensure basic needs are met. We support programs that provide access to resources needed for self-sufficiency and an improved quality of life.


Power to Inspire

Beyond our traditional giving programs, we collaborate with like-minded organizations to strengthen local communities. Together, we are moving Arizona forward.

Power to Build


Arizona cities and town should be safe, prosperous and dynamic. We collaborate with communities of all sizes to attract new businesses, support local suppliers, and partner with organizations that promote civic engagement.


Power to Connect


Support comes in many forms. Our employees engage with communities in more meaningful ways.


Power to Give


We donate print services, trash boxes and other materials to provide additional support for community organizations and activities.
