The public is invited to join the Women’s Fund of Winston Salem and party with a purpose! On May 11, the organization is hosting their annual Fund Do event. Join in for a night of great food, prizes, and more – while you help build economic security for ALL women and girls in our community.
The event will feature heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer and entertainment, and tickets are $35. The party will be held at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts downtown.
The Fund Do Party is a live and online fundraising event where each person can use their smart phones or other devices to interact with friends online, create awareness, raise funds and win great prizes. Essentially, it’s a high-tech cocktail party that elevates fundraising to a new level.
Each ticket holder or online guest will receive a link via email to their own personal fundraising page through which he/she can support The Women’s Fund, ask friends for support, compete for prizes and share the message. Your fundraising page is a resource for you to sell tickets, collection donations and spread the word about our event. They’ll keep score and see who can make the biggest impact on our community.
The competition starts NOW and runs through the night of the Party on May 11. Sign up now and start your fundraising and most social competition!
The more credit and/or points you have, the better chance you have to win one of the fabulous prizes. The more you share, the more you support women and girls in our community!

Established in 2005, The Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem seeks to improve the lives of women and girls by building a community of female philanthropists who provide grants to local programs and initiatives that address the social issues impacting women and girls in Forsyth County.

Proceeds from the event will be used towards advocacy and education efforts in our community to help address systematic issues identified in our report, A Second Look Through a Gender Lens: The Economic Security of Women and Girls in Forsyth County 2015.
For example, our report shows that poverty has increased since our 2010 report for women in Forsyth County.
