Donate money online

Every dollar you donate helps prevent hunger in Gilbert. Since we're 100% volunteer-run, your money isn't going toward a CEO's salary—it's helping your neighbor feed their family.

Your donation goes toward supplemental food and clothing for Gilbert residents, but also toward keeping our lights on. Without your generosity, Open Arms couldn't have open doors for families in need.

To give you an idea of the impact your donation could have, with just $35, we can help feed a family of 4 for 2 weeks. We are both a State of Arizona (authorized AZ Tax Credit Organization #20738) and Federally recognized Non Profit 501c(3) #86-1040036
