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, Friends events will benefit the Center for Advanced Pediatrics, Marcus Autism Center, Humorology Atlanta and more. Check out our Friends Fundraising Goals PDF’ to learn more about the organization’s impact.
