AzGT Contributes to our Communities

J.D. Wallace, Kate Maguire Jenson, Dr. Brianna Hillier
J.D. Wallace, communications, social media and marketing administrator, presents two checks for $2,000 each to Kate Maguire Jenson, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona, and Dr. Brianna Hillier, director of dental services for Chiricahua Community Health Center Inc., for a permanent power connection for the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile in Benson.

AzGT provides direct donations to many local and regional organizations and charities, and to other organizations through our Member distribution cooperatives.

  • From 2012 to 2021, we provided $356,020 in donations to charities and community organizations.

Our sponsorships focus on education, health and wellness, youth activities and community events. We also donate funds related to Touchstone Energy activities, and provide a number of youth scholarships. In addition, we offer tours of our plant and headquarters, and provide speakers for community events.

We provide substantial indirect support through shared advertising, printed materials, meeting space, and technical support for local organizations and programs. Our in-house print, graphics and audio-visual shop serves Arizona G&T as well as our Member electric co-ops, and we donate printing and A/V services for many community events.

Our employees also exemplify concern for community, donating thousands of hours of their own time, as well as more than $150,000 annually, in personal donations to local charitable organizations.
