Question:“What’s the relationship between The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem and The Winston-Salem Foundation?” 

Answer: The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem is an initiative of The Winston-Salem Foundation. This means that The Winston-Salem Foundation 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. Founded in 1919 with a $1,000 gift, it now administers over 1,300 funds and had total custodial assets of $453 million at the end of 2016.  In 2016, the Foundation granted $38.4 million to charitable causes, $2.8 million of which was through the Community Grants program.

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