ABOUT US

Forsyth Friends, Inc. is a volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization started in 2017 in Forsyth County, Georgia—our Mission Statement:  To organize volunteers and resources to benefit our communities.

 

We mobilize volunteers and resources to address the needs of people affected by adversity: 

  • Working with local groups to provide needed supplies to those affected by natural and man-made disasters

  • Raising funds for charitable organizations to assist in their spirited missions.

 Joining forces with local volunteers, corporate partners and beloved sponsors allows us to identify community needs upon which we can effectively focus and successfully address in a timely manner.

Some of our volunteers/corporate partners  have worked for over twenty years with numerous civic groups and community projects in Forsyth County.  These efforts have benefited a diverse collection of causes, including:

  • American Cancer Society

    • Golf tournaments (including the Ernie Johnson Memorial Golf Tournaments)

    • Galas including Oktoberfests, Margaritas With a Mission, Redneck Bash (featuring Jeff Foxworthy), and Mardi Gras Bash

  • American Legion veterans and youth programs

  • Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Forsyth County

  • Easter Seals

  • Family Promise of Forsyth County

  • Forsyth County food pantries

  • Forsyth County Humane Society

  • Georgia Sheriffs' Youth Homes golf tournaments

  • Special Olympics of Forsyth County

  • United Methodist Committee on Relief
