Flagstaff Youth Riders (FLYRS) — 

Each year we are faced with both new and old challenges. We are hit with everything from snow to fires and forest closures impacting our seasons along with continuously increasing expenses. Many communities don’t have a program like FLYRS and not too long ago Flagstaff didn’t either. Just like the youth in our programs, FLYRS staff, board, and coaches continually practice resiliency to keep our programs running so we can get kiddos outside and off their screens.

Approximately 40% of our budget comes from donors, sponsors, and fundraisers to offer free programming and keep prices affordable for our other programs.

We need your help in supporting FLYRS! Please support us with a donation this AZ Gives Day to reach our goal of $1,000. All donations on April 1-2 will be matched up to $500.

Tynkertopia —

” One of our loyal supporters, Charlot Root, will generously donate $2,000
if we raise $2,000 through individual donations. Every dollar you donate
will essentially be doubled during this match challenge. Please donate today through April 2 at midnight to help Tynkertopia raise $4,000 to support the free services we provide to the Flagstaff community!”

Contributions to the United Way of Northern Arizona help sustain UWNA initiatives and partnerships in Coconino, Navajo, and Apache counties. We believe in big, bold goals for our region and serve as a convener so that, together, our collective impact moves the needle on the most pressing challenges facing us today:

  • Shortage of high-quality childcare
  • Youth mental health
  • Emergencies such as wildfires and floods
  • Cultivating youth leadership
  • Fostering a sense of belonging and inclusion for all our youth

In addition to these community investments, United Way of Northern Arizona spearheads several signature initiatives with partners in the community, including the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and KinderCamp™.
