The American Friends of the Georgian Group (AFGG) is a not-for-profit organisation that provides financial and other support to The Georgian Group in England.
AFGG has 501-C(3) tax status in the USA and since its inception has
made several grants to The Georgian Group for various purposes,
including improvements to 6 Fitzroy Square and contributions towards
the cost of employing caseworkers. Grants for research or repairs have
also been made to American foundations caring for Georgian period
houses in the United States.
programme of events is organised
for AFGG members, the centrepiece of which is an exclusive annual trip
to country houses in Britain. This special visit for a small interested
group of American Friends provides access to private houses of
particular architectural interest and, while expertly guided,
endeavours to retain the informal atmosphere of a country house party.
The 2012 trip, based at Hintlesham Hall, the Georgian country house hotel near Ipswich, took in some of the finest private country houses in Suffolk, including Heveningham and Helmingham.
