CHANDLER, Ariz. – With the continuing pandemic facing our state, local nonprofits are still feeling the impact. With more people than ever reaching out for assistance, donations are needed to continue serving Chandler individuals, families, youth and seniors.

Once again the City is partnering with For Our City-Chandler to celebrate Chandler Gives Week from April 5–10. For those who are fortunate to be able to give, please consider donating to For Our City-Chandler online.

Any donation amount, small or large, is welcomed and greatly appreciated. Donations will be shared with all For Our City-Chandler partners, starting with the ones with the most immediate needs.

For Our City-Chandler nonprofits include: About Care, AZCEND, Boys and Girls Clubs of the East Valley, Chandler Care Center, Chandler Gilbert Arc, Dsquared Homes for the Homeless, East Valley Jewish Community Center, FANS Across America, Friends of the Chandler Public Library, ICAN, Matthew's Crossing, Neighbors Who Care, Recreation and Athletics for Individuals with Disabilities, Resurrection Street Ministries, Salvation Army and the YMCA.

Donations also can be given directly to a local Chandler-based nonprofit of choice. To donate to a For Our City-Chandler affiliate, visit For Our City-Chandler giving.

In addition, Chandler Public Library (CPL) is celebrating Library Giving Day on Wednesday, April 7, with a theme of “Great Stories Start Here”. Chandler Libraries open the door to a world of opportunity and throughout National Library Week (April 4-10), they’ll be sharing a variety of stories on social media from different perspectives that demonstrate the vital role CPL plays in the community and the importance of supporting libraries.

The Friends of Chandler Public Library encourage the public to donate during Library Giving Day and throughout the week. To donate, visit Friends of CPL, or through For Our City-Chandler.
