Winston-Salem Foundation

Logo for sponsor The Winston-Salem Foundation

The Foundation was established in 1919 with a donation of $1,000. We were the first foundation of any type to be established in North Carolina, and we’re the 16th oldest community foundation in the United States. For over a hundred years, thousands of individuals and organizations have partnered with us to improve the quality of life in Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, and beyond.

They celebrated their Centennial throughout 2019. Learn how they celebrated and how they're planning to make significant impact as they embark on their second century of service to the community.

WHAT THEY DO

- Community Grants: We support charitable organizations and programs that benefit Forsyth County in many program areas.
- Philanthropic Services: We educate and assist individuals and organizations in their charitable giving.
