1.Develop, encourage and promote public awareness of Gorges State park of North Carolina
2.Serve as a philanthropic volunteer organization for support of programs, development of facilities, and promotion of recreational facilities for Gorges State park
3.Solicit, hold, and expend funds for such purposes
4.Render assistance as requested by the North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation, Gorges State Park
Our mission is exclusively nonprofit, charitable, educational and environmental. The Friends of Gorges State Park may ask for donations for the Park, something that the Park staff, as governmental employees, cannot do. Funds raised will be used to purchase educational and scientific equipment, to fund Gorges State Park research, and to provide materials and facilities that enhance recreation in the Park. Please note that 100% of donations from any source go to our mission of preserving, promoting and supporting the Park.
