APS grant program returns for Surprise nonprofits

Local groups eligible for annual funding

Posted

Arizona Public Service Co. is now accepting applications for its annual West Valley Grants giving program. 

Grants are available through the Arizona Community Foundation and awarded to eligible nonprofits in Surprise, Arlington, Buckeye, Glendale, Tonopah, west Phoenix and surrounding areas. 

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Friday, May 20.

For more than 20 years, APS has partnered with Arizona Community Foundation to provide funding to eligible nonprofits that support growth and community needs in the West Valley. 

Agencies eligible for funding must be designated 501(c)(3) nonprofits and serve in the areas of arts and culture, community development, education, environment or human services.

“We’re committed to doing what is right for the people of Arizona,” said Tina Marie Tentori, director of community affairs at APS. “One way we do this is through meaningful partnerships with organizations that understand the needs of the community and work to bolster growth and prosperity for everyone.”

In 2021, 39 West Valley nonprofits received a total of $250,000. 

Grants supported a variety of community initiatives, including a STEM club for youth, community food pantry, mobile career center and emergency shelter support.
