Six Flags Friends is a series of programs throughout the Six Flags family of parks that make a difference in communities by encouraging local involvement, supporting the mission of various non-profit organizations and bringing the thrill of Six Flags to children and families across North America.
Six Flags Friends is a proud supporter of hundreds of organizations throughout our Six Flags communities. Through our national partnerships, we successfully utilize our geographic span to make a difference as a unified family of parks. Through our donation program we are able to contribute to many local organizations.
Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is also pleased to support national and international conservation organizations such as the International Elephant Foundation and its more than 40 worldwide conservation and research projects. As an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums, we support national initiatives and actively participate in conservation programs.
In addition, the park supports several Northern California organizations that make an impact in our surrounding neighborhoods. It is the work of the organizations below that truly make our cities a better place to live, work and enjoy.
Six Flags Friends is dedicated to furthering the mission of the following organizations:
Founded in 1989, SaveNature.Org is dedicated to creating global partnerships to promote broad based participation in the conservation of biological diversity through saving rainforests, coral reefs and deserts worldwide. SaveNature.Org works in partnership with schools, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, natural history museums and science centers worldwide to protect wildlife in nature. SaveNature.Org has four signature programs, the Adopt An Acre®, Adopt A Reef®, the Conservation Parking Meter and the award winning Insect Discovery Lab, a hands-on outreach program for children to discover their relationship to nature and build a sense of caring about the world around them”
California Parks and Recreation Society
Founded in 1946, the California Park & Recreation Society (CPRS) was established to provide park, recreation, leisure and community service professionals and interested citizens with the knowledge and resources to enhance their leadership role in creating community through people, parks and programs.
Friday Night Live
Developed in 1984, Friday Night Live began as a pilot program dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries caused by teen motorists driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs. The primary focus of the FNL/CL/FNL Kids/FNL Mentoring Programs is to form youth/adult partnerships with young people, providing programs rich in opportunities and support, so young people will be less likely to engage in problem behaviors, more likely to achieve in school, and more likely to attend higher education or secure a full-time job.
Key Club is the oldest and largest service program for high school students. What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others. Members of the Kiwanis International family, Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities.
United Cerebral Palsy
For more than 55 years, United Cerebral Palsy has been committed to change and progress for persons with disabilities. Founded in 1949, the national organization and its nationwide network of affiliates strive to ensure the inclusion of persons with disabilities in every facet of society—from the Web to the workplace, from the classroom to the community. As one of the largest health charities in America, the mission of United Cerebral Palsy is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities through an affiliate network.
