As Forsyth County and North Carolina are growing and changing, so is the Trust.

We are evolving our grantmaking to focus on achieving measurable outcomes, to ensure success for people and communities who are too often left behind.

We support promising programs, systems change work, and innovative ideas that help residents and communities thrive, increase equitable access to health care, and achieve equitable health outcomes.

Our Local Impact and Health Improvement program areas are structured around strategic goals. We invest at the program, community, town, county, and state level to foster long-term change. Our most intensive efforts are focused on two long-term, place-based special initiatives: Healthy Places NC and Great Expectations.
