The Winston-Salem Foundation

The Winston-Salem Foundation connects people who care with causes that matter. The foundation was formed in 1919 by Colonel Francis Fries with a $1,000 endowment. Now, with custodial assets of over $226 million, we are ranked the top 50 of the 600 community foundation in the United States. The Winston-Salem Foundation serves as a leader, resource, and catalyst by investing in our community to make philanthropy and its benefits available to all. The Foundation exists to support two of the essential structures of a healthy community: its nonprofits, which help make our community a better place in which to live and work; and its philanthropists, who give their money and their hearts.
