Many of our neighbors have a variety of needs. The Tempe community is known for its compassion and strength in caring for each other.
We believe, by joining “together,” all of us in Tempe can make a wave for good that keeps rippling throughout the community reaching young, old, homeless, abused, lonely, those needing a little support and those on the cusp of crisis. Each of us need a little help at some time throughout our lives, and occasionally, some of us may need more.

About Your Gift
Every dollar donated goes directly to a myriad of agencies providing such things as basic needs of food and shelter, but also housing assistance, prevention programs, transportation, daily living care, after school care, and more. All monies collected by community are decided by community on where to best help meet the specific needs of those in Tempe.
Since 1999, Tempe has been giving. Formerly known as Help to Others, the program name was changed to Together Tempe to better reflect its purpose. Over the years, the community has collectively given over $1.1 million which has been distributed many agencies benefitting thousands of Tempe residents.
How Your Gift is Distributed
Together Tempe dollars enhance the human services being provided in Tempe. Each year, a citizen panel is convened to review funding requests from a variety of agencies requesting funding for the programs and services they offer many in Tempe. The citizen review panel interviews the agencies and makes recommendations to Tempe Community Council’s Board of Directors and Tempe City Council on how Together Tempe donations, combined with City of Tempe human services dollars and other funding sources are to be distributed. To learn more about this process or become a part of the citizen review panel, see “Agency Review.“
