Friends Of The New Germany, also known as Friends of New Germany, was a 1933 - 1935 NSDAP- associated organization in the United States supporting National Socialism and the National Socialist Germany. The organization took over the membership of two older organizations in the United States, the Free Society of Teutonia / Nationalistic Society of Teutonia / Friends of the Hitler Movemen and the Gau-USA, which were both small groups with only a few hundred members each.

The organization had a membership of between 5,000-10,000, consisting mostly of German citizens living in America and German emigrants who only recently had become citizens.

The "Special Committee on Un-American Activities Authorized to Investigate National Socialist Propaganda and Certain Other Propaganda Activities"concluded that it was a branch of the NSDAP.

In 1935, the group's leaders were recalled to Germany, all German citizens were ordered to leave the Friends of New Germany, and in 1935 the organization was dissolved. German citizens could join the NSDAP/AO, an official branch of the NSDAP. Many others joined the German American Bund.
