Supporting Thriving Communities

Our Commitment to Racial Equity

We work for racial equity to ensure every resident has the opportunity and support they need to thrive, regardless of the color of their skin, their income, and where they live.

The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust works for equitable access to quality health care, education, and economic opportunity for every resident of Forsyth County and across North Carolina.

We focus our grantmaking on achieving long-term, sustainable outcomes to support thriving communities and empower residents. Listening to community, taking actions to foster racial equity, and shifting systems are integral to all we do.
