People are the heart of everything Tempe – here’s how you can help
Each year, the Tempe City Council and Tempe Community Council (TCC) allocate and administer about $1.2 million in grants to local human services organizations. This funding goes to assist agencies in delivering needed programs and services for children, families, homeless individuals, seniors and more.
Be a voice for your community:
- Volunteers are needed to serve on TCC’s Agency Review process. Teams of volunteers review applications submitted from local nonprofits, conduct interviews and make recommendations to the City Council for funding to selected nonprofits. Agency Review volunteers will be trained in January and serve approximately 20 hours January-March. Volunteers must be 18 or older and live or work in Tempe. To apply to volunteer, visit www.tempecommunitycouncil.org/agency-review
- Spend a few minutes taking the TCC Human Services Community Survey. Your input will help the Agency Review volunteers to prioritize funding decisions and recommendations. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R68FF2W
Tempe allocates more money for human services per capita than any other community in the East Valley. Funding for human services-based nonprofits has a tremendous impact on strengthening the community we live in, by ending homelessness, keeping youth safe, supporting seniors, and so much more.
