Local Impact in Forsyth County
Fostering a Thriving Forsyth County
We’re working to create an inclusive economy in Forsyth County that benefits all residents, leaving no one behind.
Our Developing Approach
Building will for economic mobility through ecosystem change.
We plan to work with the community to identify and support high-impact polices and programs that connect excluded groups to greater economic opportunities.
Maximizing Great Expectations through intergenerational social mobility.
Launching the next generation through systemic, multisectoral opportunities.
It’s important to offer greater support to the growing number of disconnected youth aged 16-24 who are not connected to work or education.
Maintaining the safety net.
Special Initiative: Great Expectations
We invest in our children's future.
One way to support economic mobility in the county is to invest in our youngest generation. That’s why we are investing half of our local grantmaking resources to ensure children in Forsyth County—especially those in families living in poverty—reach developmentally appropriate milestones in the first five years, enter kindergarten ready to learn, and leave set for success in school and life.
