On Wednesday, November 8, The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem held its 18th annual luncheon celebration at the Benton Convention Center, where 400 friends and members of the Fund gathered to support efforts so local women and girls can have access to the resources they need to feel safe, pursue their dreams, and thrive. The luncheon theme was Strengthening Connections. Activating Change.
The Women’s Fund supports organizations implementing programs that address the challenges women face in achieving economic security so that all women and girls have access to equitable opportunities. Its unique membership model enables members to pool their financial resources to make grants to support women and girls in our community. Members also participate in the grantmaking process by voting on the organizations and programs that will receive funding.
The Fund congratulates nine local nonprofits receiving $15,000 grants, for a total of $135,000 in grants made in 2023:
