Acts of Kindness Program
Inside your Chandler utility bill you will find a convenient way to help people in need in the community!
The Chandler Acts of Kindness donation program, or A-OK for short, was developed in July 2000, to give residents an opportunity to voluntarily contribute with their utility payment each month. The contributions collected go back into the community through a grant process to support a variety of human service programs who provide basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, medical services and transportation to low-income Chandler residents.
Thanks to the generosity of the community, the Acts of Kindness program continues to be a success. Every cent of donations collected is put right back into the community to help individuals and families in need. We appreciate you helping to make the lives of your neighbors a little better.
Since the program began in 2000, A-OK has allocated 100 percent of donations received back into the community, for a total of $715,734.
For Fiscal Year 2013-14, the City of Chandler granted $60,178 to five nonprofits who provide vital services to low-income Chandler residents. The breakdown is as follows:
|Chandler Christian Community Center
|Friends of the Chandler Public Library, Adult Literacy and the Job Center
|National Advocacy and Training Center for the SEEDs Program
|Recreation and Athletics for the Disabled (RAD) for the Chandler Referral Service
|TOTAL A-OK Program Funds
