At the core of who we are as a business is loving our community, loving our team and loving where we live. In 2022, NoFo was able to donate a total of $41,000 to ten different organizations local to Forsyth County and Hall County.

NoFo is honored to have the opportunity to make a difference in our community and surrounding areas. Each year, we focus on giving to local non-profits that align with our core convictions of community, hospitality, adventurous, unique and camaraderie.

Ari Mathe, Attorney At Law and volunteer with Hall is Home says, “We are thrilled to have the support of NoFo and look forward to a wonderful partnership in 2023! Thanks to the generous donation NoFo made to us in 2022 just before Christmas, we were able to provide financial support above and beyond what we initially expected to relative caregivers of children impacted by our local child welfare system as well as biological parents who have worked hard to achieve reunification with their children. We cannot wait to see all of the good we can do together in 2023!”
