Chinese Heritage Foundation Friends (CHF Friends), a Minnesota nonprofit corporation, was created for the purposes of planning and carrying out activities/events according to the mission of the Chinese Heritage Foundation (CHF). CHF Friends raises the funds necessary to carry out these activities. It also manages incidental non-charitable expenses of the Foundation such as mailings, printing of brochures and stationery, etc.

CHF Friends consists of a volunteer board of directors. Committees are created as needs arise. Currently the Activities Committee is most active.

The Activities Committee accepts invitations to visit schools, corporations, and multicultural festivals. Its activities include name translations; lectures on topics such as popular Chinese festivals and evolution of Chinese characters; and, on occasion, fortune telling.
