The mission of Fortitude Foundation, Inc. (FFI) is to raise funds for the purpose of enhancing and improving the ever-evolving scholarship, educational, economic, physical/mental health, and social needs of the Gwinnett County community.

A Foundation for Gwinnett County

Support a charitable foundation that's working to make Gwinnett County a better place for everyone. Incorporated in 2006, FFI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports the diverse people and communities of the county. Our Board of Directors partners with organizations as a fiscal agent so that organizations—such as veterans groups, sororities, and companies—can collect tax deductible donations. The money we collect funds scholarships and social programs that make a real difference in people's lives.
