From the Heart

From the Heart puts your donation to work every day to make life better for countless Glendale residents. Whether serving meals to the elderly, giving emergency help to homeless families or supporting abused children, From the Heart gives agencies that provide services to our neighbors a helping hand. The Gila River Indian Community makes it possible to help even more Glendale families by providing an annual match of $75,000 to the From the Heart program. 

Click on the video to the right for a 30-minute show that profiles the city’s popular ‘From the Heart’ non-profit campaign in which residents donate through the city water bill to help those in need. Viewers see how the program works and who benefits, hear the history of the organization and meet the corporate sponsors. Some of those profiled include seniors who get a hot meal delivered once a day, school children receiving back-to-school clothes, job skills being taught to those in need and utility bill assistance for residents struggling to pay their bills.

How to Apply to From the Heart

From The Heart’s mission is to promote the positive development of youth, strengthen the capabilities of families and assist residents in addressing crisis needs by supplementing the resources of existing community agencies. The program cannot provide grants to individuals.

In order to be eligible for funding, social service agencies must be non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations that serve Glendale residents. Agencies must also be in operation for at least two years prior to applying for grant funds and provide a current IRS status letter. Grants range from $2,500 to $20,000. From The Heart funds are collected in the year prior to the one in which they are distributed.

Social service agencies interested in applying to From The Heart must fill out a From The Heart application. The annual application appears on the site each December. A 'How to File an Application' workshop is offered to community agencies each January.

How From the Heart Works

From the Heart is a unique partnership of Glendale residents, the city of Glendale, the Gila River Indian Community and local community agencies. Since From The Heart began in 1997, more than $2.25 million has been raised and distributed to non-profit agencies serving Glendale residents. Every From the Heart dollar stays right here in our community to support social service agencies that serve Glendale residents.

About 13 percent of Glendale utility customers already add a $2 From the Heart contribution to their monthly city utility bill payments. Surepay customers also contribute to the program. Others make their donations by mailing or bringing a check or money order in any amount made out to From the Heart to the City of Glendale’s Customer Service Office on the first floor of the City Hall Complex located at 5850 West Glendale Avenue, Glendale, Arizona 85301.
