Support for civic & environmental programs

SRP invests in community programs and events that promote pride in our diverse communities while also supporting forums that enhance the quality of life through strategic planning.

Applicants for SRP Corporate Contributions funds must apply through SRP's online grant application system.

We also believe in the stewardship of Arizona's natural resources and protecting the water and air quality of our state. That is why SRP provides corporate contributions to programs that aim to improve the environmental quality and raise awareness of issues.

SRP contributes to civic and environmental programs that:

  • Increase the community's ability to identify and train residents to serve in leadership positions, with preference given to programs that heighten civic leadership and provide opportunities for SRP employees to engage
  • Sponsor select special community events that promote pride in our diverse communities
  • Support community forums that enhance the quality of life through the discussion of emerging issues and strategic planning
  • Increase the ability of residents to improve the environmental quality of their neighborhoods
  • Support programs that promote the awareness and understanding of technical environmental issues
