About Friends of Crowders

Who We Are

Friends of Crowders Mountain, Inc. was formed in December, 2000 and has grown into a 501(c)3 tax exempt, tax-deductible, non-profit public charity. The friends group can ask individuals and corporations for donations for park improvement – something that the park staff, as government employees, are not permitted to do. Some of the projects funded thus far include trail signs, and insect collection storage system, cameras, and a video production computer, as well as program materials and meals for emergency workers.

Mission Statement

The purposes for which Friends of Crowders Mountain is organized are to develop, encourage, and promote public awareness of Crowders Mountain State Park; to serve as a philanthropic and volunteer organization for support and maintenance of programs, development of facilities, and promotion of recreational resources of Crowders Mountain State Park; to solicit, hold, and expend funds for such purposes; and to render assistance as requested by the North Carolina Divisions of Parks and Recreation, Crowders Mountain State Park. These purposes are exclusively nonprofit, charitable, educational, and environmental.
