For nearly 50 years, our mission has remained simple but compelling: balance the economic vitality of Arizona businesses, cities, schools and fellow nonprofits with environmental sustainability and the promotion of healthy communities. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Arizona Forward works statewide to bring together a diverse group of members who care deeply about the quality of life in Arizona. Arizona Forward mobilizes the state's business leaders and policymakers, leveraging their collective power to influence how we best grow our communities, stimulate our economy and enhance our environment. Here's what we're up to, right now. 

  • New beginnings are full steam ahead for both Arizona Forward and its current President & CEO Diane Brossart. Diane announced her plans to retire following a noteworthy 26-year run as the leader behind the 48-year-old business-based environmental public interest organization, which expanded statewide five years ago. 
  • The Board of Arizona Forward resolved to endorse the "City of Phoenix Complete Streets Policy," a thoughtful plan to make the City more walkable, bikeable and public transit friendly while fostering social engagement and growing the local economy;
  • Arizona Forward is serving as a leading advocate for Canalscape, an initiative to embrace the Valley's canal system as an iconic community asset that fosters place-making, connectivity and recreation. Watch for a bricks and mortar demonstration project along the Grand Canal on Central Avenue within the campus of four schools, fostering collaborative education and outreach on best practices for canal enhancement projects and ROI for developers; 
  • Our team got real with Project Green-Up, organizing 50 members and volunteers at the Phoenix Rio Salado Habita Restoration Area to clean up litter and beautify the trail ways in this Phoenix gem; 
  • Arizona Forward was named an IMPACTful Awards Finalist by the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. Only 4 nonprofit finalists were selected out of 30 high-profile nominees - yay us! 
  • September 23, Scottsdale - 37th Annual Environmental Excellence Awards Presented by SRP - Arizona's largest, most prominent environmental awards competition. Finalists will be spotlighted in a comprehensive media campaign. #AZFAwards
