About Friends of Nigeria

Our Organization

The success of our Friends of Nigeria organization is due primarily to the efforts of the members of the FON Board of Directors.  In addition to serving as directors, Board members also serve on standing and ad hoc committees that evaluate and make recommendations on issues to be considered by the Board.  Members of the Board are elected for two-year terms.  Click on the links to the left to see the composition of the Board and the committees of the Board.  Work of the Board is conducted in reference to the Friends of Nigeria mission statement.

Since it was founded in 1996, Friends of Nigeria has sought to maintain ties with grass-roots organizations in Nigeria.  As of the end of the 2020 fiscal year, FON had donated more than $300,000 to these organizations.  Click on the link to the left to read about our involvement in health and education projects and our grants program to support these projects.  Donations in support of our grants program are always welcome.
