Donating is easy!
Making a From the Heart donation is easy. Glendale utility customers can add $1 to their monthly utility bill payments. If you don't receive a utility bill, or you want to donate more than $1 per month, you can mail or bring a check or money order made out to From the Heart in any dollar amount to:
City of Glendale, Customer Service Office
5850 W. Glendale Avenue, 1st Floor, Glendale, AZ, 85301
- CLICK HERE to print out a coupon that can be attached to your From the Heart check or money order.
Remember, your donation will immediately grow because of a match from the Gila River Indian Community and will help kids succeed, assist families to meet unforeseen hardships, care for the elderly and support people with special needs. Because administering From the Heart is an all-volunteer effort, 100 percent of all contributions go directly to providing essential human services to our most vulnerable residents.
Your donation to From the Heart will make a difference in someone’s life!

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 $1 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.
