The Arizona Trail Association is a nonprofit who works to protect, maintain, enhance, promote, and sustain the Arizona Trail - which is a part of a larger trail that spans 800 miles between Utah, Mexico, and Arizona. The organization enlisted people living near the path to post their contact information online for trail users to use when in need of a shuttle, shower, or place to stay. Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff Board of Advisor member Brian Blue is a trail angel, and is featured in the Arizona Daily Star article about the organization. Read more here.
The Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff and funding collaborators awarded $1,853,365 in grants to Flagstaff-area nonprofit organizations at the annual Celebrating Flagstaff’s Nonprofit Organizations event on Monday, September 23. Funding supported 114 nonprofits who work in education, healthcare, arts and culture, social services, animal welfare, and the environment.
“This is my favorite event of the year,” said ACF of Flagstaff Board of Advisors Chair Kimberlie Geile-Gonzalez. “I don’t know of any other community that comes together in this way to assist programs that include music, environmental education, healthcare, social services, and so many other diverse nonprofit programs and projects in our community. It is exciting to watch the Flagstaff community grow and thrive.”
The contributions from ACF of Flagstaff bring the total philanthropic impact to over $3 million distributed in the past year to support area nonprofits and provide scholarships for local students.
