About Friends​

Friends is the name of the community volunteer organization of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We have members throughout greater Atlanta who raise funds each year to fulfill crucial needs.

Friends groups are encouraged to plan fundraisers that are of interest and provide a fun opportunity to interact with friends and neighbors while supporting the patients at Children’s. These fundraisers can be anything from our black-tie gala to a neighborhood block party. There are currently more than 2,500 Friends members that support Children’s through volunteer opportunities, fundraising events and special service projects.

This year, funds raised by Friends groups will benefit Children’s camps, which offer weekend and weeklong camp opportunities for children with various medical conditions and their families. Check out our Friends Fundraising Goals to learn more about the organization’s impact.
