GoalFriends Global Foundation, Limited, a non-proﬁt entity, was founded by Darlene Whitehurst in 2018. The Foundation makes charitable distributions to other 501(c)(3) organizations and assists with mission-based activities, mentoring programs, women and children’s education, and women’s empowerment initiatives.
As an entrepreneur and thought leader and throughout her body of work, Ms.Whitehurst has built a culture of helping others achieve more through her passion for goal setting, personal transformation and self-growth principles of which led to the development of GoalFriends in 2009.
Originally intended for small, intimate groups, today the GoalFriends methodology exists as both self-guided and group-based programs, supported by an experienced and talented leadership team delivering thoughtful content through workbooks, webinars, conferences and other educational opportunities supported by both online and ofﬂine communities. Because of her strongly held belief that no one should be held back due to limited access, lack of education or ﬁnancial resources, The GoalFriends Global Foundation was established as an extension of that work to deliver the message to a larger audience.
The Foundation takes each of the proprietary brands of GF Global and makes them available to under-served and marginalized populations around the world at little or no cost to them. Along with providing GoaFriends educational programs, the GF Foundation partners with like-minded causes. In our efforts to "inspire and reach the masses" we partner and support other non-profit initiatives who believe in the impact of a empowering women and equipping girls to grow up healthy, confident, educated, and independent. TOGETHER, we can empower women globally!
