The Friends of Glen Manor House is a private non-profit organization of individuals dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and maintenance of the Glen Manor House for the enjoyment of present and future generations of Portsmouth residents.

The organization is managed on a day to day basis by an Executive Board that meets monthly at the House.
