The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem is an initiative of The Winston-Salem Foundation, which also provides significant administrative and operating support for The Women’s Fund. The Winston-Salem Foundation is a community foundation that supports charitable programs in the greater Forsyth County area. The Foundation’s mission is to make philanthropy and its benefits available to all.

The Winston-Salem Foundation is a community foundation that supports charitable programs in the greater Forsyth County area. Founded in 1919 with a $1,000 gift, it now administers 1,450 funds and had total custodial assets of more than $603 million at the end of 2017.  In 2017, the Foundation granted $46.3 million to charitable causes, almost $2.9million of which was through its Community Grants program.  

The Foundation offers personalized service to make giving easy, flexible and efficient; local expertise with knowledge of current community issues to make giving as effective as possible; and community leadership in bringing together diverse voices and groups to address issues, foster greater giving and support high-impact opportunities in our community.

The Women’s Fund is most appreciative of The Winston-Salem Foundation for their generosity; their support allows the majority of our income to be invested back into the community to change the lives of women and girls.
