Giving back to the Valley

As a community-based not-for-profit, SRP has served the Valley since before Arizona was a state. Today we continue this tradition through a variety of community outreach programs that support fellow nonprofits, teachers and more throughout the Valley.

The dedication and support of SRP employees is the driving force behind the programs’ successes. Find out more about what our employees were up to in 2018 and join us in giving back today, Arizona Gives Day.
