Change for Kids


Santa Rosa businesses and residents can help Recreation and Parks provide safe places for kids! Support the CHANGE FOR KIDS program and benefit after school activities!

City of Santa Rosa Utility customers, including businesses, are encouraged to “round up” their monthly utility bill (water & sewer) payment to the nearest dollar with the extra “change” going into an after school fund for Santa Rosa kids. This program helps to raise funds so more after school programs can be provided in Santa Rosa in areas where services are most needed. Gang issues in our community are serious and require a community wide response in order to have a long-term, positive effect. After school programs are a key component in keeping kids active, involved, safe and secure.

We have Three easy ways you can enroll in this program:

The CHANGE FOR KIDS Program is one small way that every household and business in Santa Rosa can participate. Currently there are 49,000 Santa Rosa Utility customers. If 10,000 households gave $3.00 per year, we could provide an additional after school program for 100 children. If every business gave a fixed amount of $5.00 per month, several additional programs serving 200 children per year could be provided! What a difference this could make in our community. Please help the Recreation and Parks Department by enrolling your business and/or your household in the program.
