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 make a voluntary donation to assist needy individuals and families within the City of Chandler. The contributions collected go back into the community through a grant process to support a variety of human service programs which provide basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, medical services, transportation, and utility bill assistance to low-income Chandler residents.

Thanks to the generosity of the community, the Acts of Kindness program continues to be a success. Every cent 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. 

For Fiscal Year 2018-19, the City of Chandler granted $56,666 to four nonprofits who provide vital services to low-income Chandler residents. The breakdown is as follows:

AZCEND $28,333
Friends of the Chandler Public Library, Adult Literacy $5,000
National Advocacy and Training Network: Live & Learn $15,728
Recreation and Athletics for Individuals with Disabled (RAD) for the Chandler Referral Service $7,605
TOTAL  A-OK Program Funds $56,666
