Last chance for Future Fund tickets!
Buy your tickets now for Future Fund 10 LIVE!
Open to the Community and all ages - this event highlights the work of innovative nonprofits.

Future Fund 10 Live is part shark tank, part incubator. Nonprofit Finalists will get up on stage and give a three-minute pitch about how they're impacting the Greensboro community.

Then, the audience (that's you!) texts to vote to award up to $45,000 in grant money.

Tickets are $35 and include heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine, beer, dessert...and of course the chance to help positively impact Greensboro.
The 70-foot-long and 32-foot-high sculpture, titled Relativity, was created by Maryland artist David Hess and is a collaboration between the Public Art Endowment and the Greensboro Science Center.
Where We Met new installation!
We are excited to announce that Greensboro’s iconic aerial sculpture is back and better than ever!  Where We Met by Janet Echelman has returned to LeBauer Park with a vibrant new color scheme. This is the first of a three-part development of the artwork coming over the next 15 to 20 years and representative of the process of change in our community!
Annual Luncheon and Women to Women Week!
In 2021, Women to Women had its largest grant year ever, awarding $283,000 to nine organizations. For the first time in two years, more than 800 women joined together to celebrate these amazing organizations during W2W's 12th Annual Celebration Luncheon.

During the luncheon, Mayor Nancy Vaughan proclaimed the week of March 8 as Women to Women Week. This week-long campaign consisted of various activities and events to uplift, recognize, support, and celebrate women in our community.
W2W introduces The Kay Hagan Scholarship
This is a scholarship for a graduating high school senior woman who shares Kay's love for community service, civic leadership, and assisting others in making a positive difference in the world. This will be a four-year scholarship, and W2W will have the distinction of introducing the most recent recipient of this prestigious award each year at the W2W luncheon.
We are pleased to announce that Olivia Shaver has been chosen as the 2022 recipient of the John R. Kernodle, Jr. Memorial Teaching Scholarship. 

Olivia is a graduating senior at Penn Griffin School for the Arts. She will attend Appalachian State University in the fall, majoring in Elementary Education. 

The Kernodle Scholarship was established in 1996 to honor the memory of John R. Kernodle, Jr. who, as chair of the Guilford County School Board, left a lasting impact on the Guilford County School System.  

To date, the scholarship has awarded $948,783.13 to 28 recipients.
