Six Flags Friends is a series of programs throughout the Six Flags family of parks that makes 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.
Six Flags Over Georgia is also pleased to support the work of 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.
Through our annual Ticket Donation Program, we are able to contribute to many local organizations. The current Ticket Donation application window is NOW CLOSED. Please check back in January for the next Ticket Donation application window and complete the Donation Request Form.
Six Flags Friends is dedicated to furthering the mission of the following organizations:
Six Flags Over Georgia becomes the first US theme park to partner with Goodr, a food recovery and distribution company. Goodr’s triple-win solution to the problem of food waste vs hunger paired with their recovery and distribution logistics benefit the community, the environment and the bottom line. With local communities experiencing food insecurity, the park is able to continue its efforts to reduce food waste and increase sustainability. For more information on Goodr, visit www.goodr.co.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. The Salvation Army helps the community by donating 100% of their budget during disaster for relief efforts. The Salvation Army’s services includes music playing, ensembles, disaster reliefs, thrift store and charity shops, rettle kettles, family tracing services and youth groups.
