FFMA - Forest Fee Management Association - Maximizing Value to Schools

We Maximize Value to Schools

The Forest Fee Management Association is organized as a voluntary cooperative program specifically for, but not limited to:


  • Promoting shared and enhanced educational funding opportunities among school districts located in Yavapai County, Arizona, by means of  administering an agreement using forest reserve monies received by participating school districts pursuant to ARS 11-497 and 41-736 and voluntarily paid by these school districts to the fiscal agent for this I.G.A. for the cooperative procurement and use of public and private materials and services, common use of capital equipment, provision of personnel, informational, technical or other services that may assist in improving the efficiency or economy of procurement and other purposes permitted under an intergovernmental agreement and a cooperative purchasing agreement pursuant to A.A.C. R7-2-1191, et seq.
  • Creating a democratically elected Management Board, subject to these bylaws, that will have complete and independent control of forest reserve monies collected from member districts, to be used solely for the mutual benefit of those member districts.
  • Allowing the Yavapai County Education Service Agency to serve without charge, as the fiscal agent, yet with the specific understanding that once the Forest Fees are allocated by the Board of Supervisors, Yavapai County Government and the Yavapai County School Superintendent have absolutely no control over funding decisions.
  • Opening membership to all School Districts operating within Yavapai County, Arizona, who wish to voluntarily direct a portion of their Forest Fee proceeds to the Management Association to maximize their educational and financial impact.
