Who We Are:
Friends For Good
Established in Philadelphia in 2019, Friends for Good (FFG) is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) social philanthropic organization bringing together young professionals with a commitment to community service.
FFG provides a space for our members to connect, gather, and socialize through local volunteer opportunities and signature fundraising events throughout the year.
FFG sets itself apart as a nonprofit organization, in that it is not limited to one beneficiary; in addition to our own projects, we support other local charitable efforts and nonprofits, allowing us to quickly respond to areas of the most pressing need.
By bringing together Friends with diverse backgrounds, experience, and interests, FFG serves the dual purpose of contributing to the local community, and of creating a community for those who join. We endeavor to encourage others to become involved, make new connections, and to make a positive impact, one person at a time.
Friends for Good has a simple mission; Do Good, Feel Good.
FFG enables young professionals to connect and give back to their community through direct and impactful engagement. We are committed to supporting our neighbors in need through our efforts in fundraising, volunteering, and raising awareness for our main areas of focus: Eliminating Hunger, Supporting Children in Crisis, and Uplifting our Philadelphia Community.
What People Say
The goal of Friends for Good is to create a fun and engaging environment that makes it easy for the busy young professional to give back and become more involved in their community.
Can you imagine if every young professional in Philadelphia signed up for just one or two volunteer events a year? The positive impact on our city would be profound!
I've only been in Philadelphia 6 months and didn't know one person when I moved here. It's always strange being new to a city but FFG really makes it easy to find people that have similar interests! And I was able to give back to my new community!
Even though I had the best intentions of wanting to volunteer, I didn't know where to start and it was so intimidating to do it by myself. So I just kept pushing it off until I found Friends for Good! It was so easy to sign up and I made new friends from volunteering!
