EFAZ plays an important role in environmental giving in Arizona. Individuals who participate in charitable giving through EFAZ have the opportunity to show their support for environmental causes that are ignored by other work place giving programs. Without EFAZ there would be a gapping hole in environmental funding in Arizona.

Thank you EFAZ for all that you do for Arizona's people and environment.

efaz is more than a green giving choice here in Arizona. efaz's Director Laine Seaton is passionate about all things environmental and is a tireless networker. Our company, youchange.com, has benefited from Laine's introductions and network. We look forward to working with Laine and supporting her members!

EFAZ is a fantastic resource for the environmental non-profit community. Laine Seaton, the Executive Director, provides excellent service to help their clients and continuously improve the organization. EFAZ is relentless in pursuing new corporate giving programs to the benefit of EFAZ's clients.

In these times of economic turndown, there are so many other worthy causes for people to support. With EFAZ's help, the environmental community has a voice.

I have watched this organization grow and improve for the past three years. Laine was on my board for two years and, as she has helped EFAZ grow, she helped us grow.

I would like to see EFAZ grow - this will take more people (board and/or volunteers) taking action. One person can do only so much - there's only so many hours in a day.

EFAZ is truly an organization that takes action to help the community. They help protect the delicate Sonoran desert which is a vital amenity for outdoor enthusiastic. Their work also supports the Maricopa County park system which is the largest regional park system in the country.
