Acts of Kindness Program
 
Chandler's Acts of Kindness ProgramInside 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.
 
Since the program began in 2000, A-OK has allocated 100 percent of donations received back into the community, for a total of $772,400.
 
For Fiscal Year 2017-18, 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 $32,066
Friends of the Chandler Public Library, Adult Literacy $5,000
National Advocacy and Training Center for the SEEDs Program $13,600
Recreation and Athletics for the Disabled (RAD) for the Chandler Referral Service $6,000
TOTAL  A-OK Program Funds $56,666
