FUND FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE ENDOWMENT
In honor of its 40th anniversary in 2009, Arizona Forward (then Valley Forward) established the Fund for a Sustainable Future endowment. Gifts to this Fund work to build a permanent capital reserve, creating a financial bedrock for the organization, ensuring our success for generations to come.
Held at the Arizona Community Foundation, your gift to the Fund for a Sustainable Future endowment becomes part of the Fund’s permanent principal, where it is invested and held in perpetuity. Over time, interest earned by the Fund will be directed to Arizona Forward’s operating budget, enabling us to diversify our funding sources and thereby strengthen our financial vitality.
Arizona Forward was founded as Valley Forward in 1969, one year before the first Earth Day. We expanded statewide in 2013.
We mobilize business leaders and policymakers to leverage their collective power to influence how we best grow our communities, stimulate our economy and enhance our environment.
Our diverse membership of large corporations and small businesses, along with municipal, county and state agencies, educational institutions, related nonprofits and concerned citizens help ensure: smart growth and development, efficient transportation, improved air quality, responsible water management, energy alternatives and meaningful education.
