Scottsdale Cares

Scottsdale Cares is the City of Scottsdale's voluntary utility bill donation program that supports a variety of human service programs. Initiated in May 1995, Scottsdale Cares has received over $1 million from Scottsdale residents - donated one dollar at a time. Scottsdale Cares is an easy way to help neighbors in need by adding $1.00 to your monthly water bill. Simply pay the grand total and $1.00 will be automatically donated to the program. 100% of your donation goes to our neighbors in need and is completely tax deductible.

Your generous donations assist non-profit agencies who provide programs for thousands of individuals facing tough times in our community. The dollars collected through Scottsdale Cares are granted to non-profit agencies that:

  1. promote the positive development of youth, adults and seniors,
  2. strengthen the capability of families and the self-sufficiency of adults and
  3. assist Scottsdale citizens of all ages in addressing crisis needs.

Some of the programs that your contributions support include services for severely disabled adults, suicide hotlines, emergency crisis support and home delivered meals for the elderly.
