Grants Administration

From the Heart

From the Heart is a unique partnership of Glendale residents, the city of Glendale and local community agencies. 

How From the Heart Works:
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 15 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 at the Civic Center Annex located at 5752 West Glenn Dr., Glendale, Arizona 85301.

In 2002, a coalition of Native American tribes successfully obtained passage of Proposition 202, whereby the State was authorized to enter into gaming compacts with individual tribes. The new compacts allowed for expanded tribal gaming devices, additional games and pari-mutuel wagering. In exchange, tribes agreed to share a portion of gaming revenues with the State and its counties, cities and towns.

As a municipality the City of Glendale may be requested by non-profits to support, via City Council resolution, grant applications that will be submitted to one of Arizona’s Native American tribes for shared revenue resulting from gaming as required by the State.  Should the grant be approved by a tribe, the State requires tribes to pass the money through the city to the organization applying for the funds.   The city will serve as a pass through agency only should a grant be awarded and will not be responsible for monitoring, accounting or reporting on how the recipient organization is using the funds.

 The City of Glendale has developed procedures for the equitable and consistent processing of Proposition 202 Indian Gaming Revenue Sharing Grant applications that require a supporting City of Glendale City Council resolution. Please contact (623) 930-2222 for more information about this process.
