Make a Gift

Gifts of any size can help transform the lives of women and girls in Forsyth County. Here are ways to support The Women’s Fund, whether you become a member or not.


You can designate that your gift be used for:
  • The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem Fund: your contribution supports the Women’s Fund’s mission, grantmaking, and programming today
  • The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem Endowment: your contribution builds the Fund’s endowment for the future
  • The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem Grantmaking Fund: your contribution supports The Fund’s grantmaking in the community
For either designation, you can make a tribute gift in memory or in honor of a special person or in celebration of an event in someone's life. The honoree (or their family, in the case of a memorial gift) will receive a special card from The Women's Fund acknowledging your gift. (All tribute gifts of $50 or more will be highlighted in the annual luncheon program.)


There are many ways to support The Women’s Fund through a planned gift, utilized during your lifetime and beyond.

Planned giving options include support through a retirement plan, IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution, charitable remainder trust or charitable lead trust, life insurance policy, or retained life estate. Donors can specify a dollar amount, a percentage of an estate, or the remainder of an estate. Please visit The Winston-Salem Foundation’s website for more detailed information on these giving tools and the benefits of planned giving.
