The ABC’s of LAUNCH Flagstaff

The United Way is proud to be a major supporter of LAUNCH Flagstaff, the unique partnership of community stakeholders dedicated to creating and maintaining a world-class education for all Flagstaff students from cradle to career.

This collaboration, which also receives major funding from the Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff and The Wharton Foundation, is not a new program or service.
