About Us


The mission of Friends of Flagstaff’s Future is to achieve a sustainable, just and thriving Flagstaff through community education, engagement and advocacy.

We are the only multi-issue non-profit advocacy organization in Flagstaff.



F3 envisions Flagstaff as a socially just community that embraces an environmentally sustainable lifestyle, protects open spaces and their ecological diversity, supports locally owned businesses, encourages the democratic process, and offers opportunities for all to live happy and productive lives.


Main Goals:

Lead Flagstaff’s transition towards a more resilient, sustainable, and just community and economy by:

a) Elevating stewardship of our built and natural environment

b) Minimizing consumption and destruction of energy and resources

c) Promoting social justice

d) Strengthening the local and green economy

Friends of Flagstaff’s Future (F³) was founded in 1995 by concerned citizens who wanted to ensure that the public had an active role in community decision-making.

The citizens who formed this organization recognized that protecting the high quality of life of the greater Flagstaff area would take the active participation of a broad range of people who were willing to grapple with complex issues and strive for a positive, collaborative outcome.

Key to our mission is the engagement of local citizens in strategic efforts to protect our clean air and water, unique character and diversity, and the urban trails and open spaces that give us the opportunity to love and learn about the environment in which we live. Together with our members and volunteers, we strive to preserve the beauty and diversity of Flagstaff for future generations.
