Friends of Ortley Beach develops activities, programs and events that foster community engagement in enriching arts, educational and cultural opportunities as well as advocating and protecting our coastal environment.

Our philosophy is to partner with businesses and organizations to raise awareness of the history of Ortley Beach, and to establish support for arts and culture in order to to spur the vitality of our community, particularly as we continue to rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.

We will also encourage protection of the barrier island ecosystem in everything we do.
