Customers can help our companies fight hunger in our communities through a new program beginning in 2021.

Through our new TEP Gives programs, we’ll make a donation to a local nonprofit group for each account holder who signs up for Budget Billing, e-bill or Auto Pay. TEP’s donations will go to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

All contributions are funded from our existing philanthropic budget with company resources, not customers’ rates.

“Our company is committed to community improvement and engagement and it’s been our intent through this pandemic to direct funds where they’re needed most in our communities,” said Wendy Erica Werden, Manager of Community Investment and Philanthropy. “Right now, the biggest need is to fight hunger. When all of us work together, we can make a difference in the quality of life in our community.”

If the program proves popular, new beneficiaries will be selected periodically to provide customers with opportunities to direct charitable support other causes. Sign up online through My Account, the TEP Mobile App or by calling Customer Care at 520-623-7711.
