One for the Verde serves as a local business partnership that supports a healthy Verde River. One for the Verde is a program of Friends of Verde River Greenway.
Conservation Partners: One for the Verde’s business partnership is formed from local businesses in the Verde Valley, who are Conservation Partners. Conservation Partners donate to One for the Verde’s Verde River Conservation Fund.
By participating in One for the Verde, local businesses and their customers support the conservation projects funded by One for the Verde’s grant program. Annual grant funding is used to support sustainable recreation, environmental education, habitat restoration and water quality projects.

One for the Verde invites local non-profits, governments, tribes, and other entities to apply to One for the Verde’s annual grant program with proposals for projects that will benefit the health of the Verde River. Funded projects have included trial improvements, educating local students in stream health, and installing signage to educate the general public about the value of our rivers and creeks. All of these efforts bolster our natural resources and our local economy.
