What they say about FAF

“We are very pro-FAF. In today’s “make a buck at all costs” world, they are more concerned with service and furthering positive cultural exchanges as a means of creating a better world. Sounds kind of corny, but it’s the truth.”

- Kathy Shannon, West Virginia University, February 2000

It is a great pleasure to send greetings to the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation’s Youth Delegates. I can’t thank you enough for demonstrating your commitment to making a difference, and I encourage each of you to continue to give back to others. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I thank you for your terrific work. I commend everyone involved with the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation. Please accept my best wishes for much continued success. Keep up the good work!”

“On behalf of the Huntington Middle School Orchestra, we would like to express our grateful appreciation to FAF for organizing and coordinating our trip to New York City and Carnegie Hall on April 8-12, 2009. Our students had a wonderful time from this trip. The itinerary you planned was excellent, as was your assistance throughout our stay in New York. We are especially thankful to you for arranging the tour and concert at Juilliard School, which is an inspiration to our students. We certainly look forward to using your services again in the future.”

- Robert Folsom, Orchestra Director, Huntington Orchestra, 2009

“Thanks again for everything you did for our experience. It was certainly a first-class operation, and you were friendly, charming, professional, and organized.”

- Dr Christopher J. Nicholas, Coe College Bands Soloist; Associate Director of Bands, University of Wyoming Department of Music; August 2008
