Attend an Event

The Women’s Fund offers learning events throughout the year as we bring together members and the public to learn more about critical issues impacting women and girls in Forsyth County. Please join us!

Annual Luncheon: November 16, 2022

Each November, hundreds of community members have gathered to celebrate the power of collective giving at our Annual Luncheon. During the program, The Women’s Fund announces grants to both established organizations and grassroots programs that focus on creating social change - all funded from the pooled contributions of the Fund’s membership and other donors. The luncheon reflects The Fund’s success in gathering a community together as one, and utilizing their collective knowledge, wisdom, and resources to create social change. Learn more!

Ideas To Action Series

The Women's Fund is responding to our community by providing opportunities to discover ways we can follow directly-impacted leaders, add power and influence to local movements driving change, and help move forward community-led solutions. To achieve our mission and successfully disrupt the systems that cause disparities based on race and gender, we must take action.

For 2022, we have developed a multi-part series focused on providing the information we need to take action in the following areas:

  • Affordable Housing
  • Equitable Public Education (Pre-K through 12)
  • Fair and Livable Wages
  • Improved Access to Childcare

Our next Ideas to Action event will be later this year. To stay in informed about future Ideas to Action events, make sure to sign up for our e-news!
