In the community

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 donate $10 million annually to worthy community organizations and programs dedicated to improving the lives of Arizonans. 

COVID-19 has caused a great deal of uncertainty among many nonprofits across the state. Your important work is being made much more difficult by this unprecedented pandemic, which is why we are working with our community partners to ensure emergency funds are readily available to help provide for the urgent needs of Arizonans during these times. We have joined numerous Arizona businesses and individuals to support the following funds that can provide immediate assistance:

• The Arizona Community Foundation’s COVID19 Community Response Fund
• The Arizona Together Fund, launched by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey

We have provided immediate support to these funds as they have the infrastructure in place to respond quickly to emerging community needs. Guidelines, eligibility requirements and online applications for each fund can be found in the links above. In addition, our online grant application remains open to partners whose work falls within APS’s giving guidelines. Due to the high volume of applications being submitted, our responses may take a little longer than normal. We appreciate your patience as we move requests through our evaluation process.

Thank you for supporting our community members who need our help the most. Together, we will get through this challenging time.

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.

Encouraging a healthy environment

There’s no place quite like Arizona. Desert sunsets. Hiking trails. Snow-capped mountains. Vibrant wildlife. We support programs that celebrate and preserve the Southwest’s unique environmental landscape.
