Our Next Century of Impact

35


DEAR FRIENDS, In 2017, as we established plans to honor and celebrate the Foundation’s 100 years of impact, we couldn’t have imagined the situation that we now face as a community, a country, and a world. Yet, as we reflect on these past few years, we want you to know how inspired we are by your astounding generosity and by the collective strength that emerges from working together to address both new and persistent challenges. One of the unique benefits of investing in a community foundation is that we pool gifts of all sizes to provide meaningful impact, no matter what the opportunities and challenges we face. A case in point: this year we could not have been nearly as generous in our grantmaking to address COVID-19’s devastating impact on local individuals and nonprofits without the support of all those listed in this report who donated to our flexible funds. From the beginning of the Centennial effort in 2017 through June 2020, our fundraising efforts resulted in 50 new flexible Unrestricted and Field of Interest endowments being established, and coupled with gifts to already-existing flexible funds, these added more than $800,000 to the annual grantmaking dollars available to be invested back in Forsyth County. Gifts to the Next Century Fund from October 2018 to

June 2020 totaled $450,000, also supplementing our flexible grantmaking dollars in perpetuity. Eleven needbased scholarship funds were established during this time, and as of this fall, they were already providing over $400,000 a year in additional scholarship support to local students needing financial assistance. In addition to substantially increasing our flexible grantmaking resources and scholarship support, during the Centennial we worked to diversify the Foundation family — listening more intentionally and including new and critical perspectives in our decision-making. We created more alignment between

our work and that of our strategic initiatives: the Black Philanthropy Initiative, the Women’s Fund, and Youth Grantmakers in Action. We also deepened staff and board learning about racial equity, and we will continue to infuse this knowledge in all our work, both internally and externally, to advance equity in Forsyth County. As we move forward, the Foundation will continue aligning our investments in this evolving community with a collective vision for the future. Eliminating hundreds of years of inequities will take all of us coming together and using the resources we have to ensure that everyone in Forsyth County has the resources they need to thrive — no matter the color of their skin or the zip code in which they live. We sincerely appreciate your trust in the work of this foundation. Thanks to you, The Winston-Salem Foundation will be serving Winston-Salem and Forsyth County for decades and for centuries to come. Best regards, Annette P. Lynch Vice President, Advancement

Scott F. Wierman President

Our 2019 Centennial Year

CENTENNIAL COMMUNITY LUNCHEON

YOUTH GRANTMAKERS IN ACTION CELEBRATION Our youth grantmakers hosted their annual grant celebration in April where they announced grants to 13 youth-led groups, funding projects as varied as a spring literacy camp, an alternative prom, a food backpack pantry, and scholarship funds for a theatre summer enrichment program. YGA gives voice to a diverse group of youth ages 15-18 as they plan their own grantmaking process to make a positive impact in Forsyth County.

In May, we welcomed an enthusiastic crowd of 1,250 community members to celebrate the Foundation’s 100th birthday at the Benton Convention Center. The event kicked off with student performances and followed with remarks from past and present volunteers who introduced four videos reflecting the Foundation’s legacy, its impact, and aspirations for the community’s future. Many guests also visited the Centennial photo wall to share their hopes and dreams for Winston-Salem’s future.

STAFF BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION Foundation staff gathered on our building’s rooftop for a luncheon to celebrate the Foundation’s official 100th birthday on October 14. Founded with a $1,000 donation, we were the first foundation of any type to be established in North Carolina. The celebration continued throughout October with Centennial flags posted on downtown streetlights and blue lights shining on city landmarks.


WOMEN’S FUND OF WINSTON-SALEM LUNCHEON

BLACK PHILANTHROPY INITIATIVE FUNDRAISER BPI’s 10th annual fundraising event was held in October at WinstonSalem State University’s Anderson Center. Continuing its focus on advancing equity in education in our Black communities, BPI highlighted five grantees, followed by speaker Dr. Karen Roseboro of WinstonSalem/Forsyth County Schools. After the event, many guests attended renowned journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones’s keynote at the Williams Auditorium.

In November, The Women’s Fund held its 14th annual luncheon at the Benton Convention Center. Over 700 members and friends gathered to hear keynote speaker Suzanne Reynolds, retired dean at Wake Forest University’s School of Law. They also celebrated over $106,000 in grants to nine local nonprofits addressing the economic security of women and girls in Forsyth County.

DAVID BROOKS EVENT: BETTER COMMUNITIES AND BETTER LIVES More than 1,300 community members joined us on a December evening at Reynolds Auditorium to hear from New York Times columnist David Brooks as he shared his thoughts on how to strengthen connections and our community in a fragmented world. After his keynote, Brooks was joined on stage for more conversation with Dr. Elwood Robinson, chancellor of WinstonSalem State University.

CENTENNIAL GIFT TO THE COMMUNITY — POLLINATOR GARDENS AT QUARRY PARK In commemoration of the Centennial, in December the Foundation made its Gift to the Community, a $125,000 grant to create sustainable pollinator gardens at Quarry Park. The 228-acre park opened in 2017 and is still in development. This beautiful site is connected to local greenways and is home to a wide variety of wildlife, and once complete, the gardens will provide a rich habitat for attracting pollinating insects — so critically needed in our environment today.

Next Century Ambassadors “When I grow up, I want Winston-Salem to be a city with people with far different backgrounds to be together, be able to go to schools together, attend churches together, and live in the same neighborhoods. And I believe that parents should be able to have great jobs to take care of their families.” –T R E V I O N TAY L O R WS/FCS student

These generous community members answered the Foundation’s call and helped us achieve our Centennial goals through their commitment of resources. Next Century Ambassadors identified and encouraged others to become partners with the Foundation’s efforts, they hosted and attended special events and endorsed our work in the community, and they led by example by making personal commitments to the Centennial fundraising efforts. We share our deep gratitude to our generous Next Century Ambassadors, as their efforts have ensured that additional flexible resources will be available for Forsyth County for years to come.

[ 4 ] The Winston-Salem Foundation centennial donor report


Donors to our Centennial Efforts In 2017, the Foundation’s staff and board identified three key areas where we would focus intensive fundraising efforts during the Centennial to expand our ability to respond to our community through grantmaking and scholarships for students with greater financial need. This list reflects donations to Unrestricted and Field of Interest Funds, financial need-based Scholarship Funds, and to the Next Century Fund endowment for Community Grantmaking. We are most grateful for this support as it will expand the Foundation’s ability to support this community as we enter our second century of service.

JOHN AND M A RY LO U I S E B U R R E SS

When Less Is More Ask retired businessman John Burress about the current state of his investment portfolio, and he’ll tell you that today he’s worth considerably less than what he once was. And he’s never been happier. “That is by design,” John says in all seriousness. “I’ve been fortunate enough to be a successful investor and have given away considerably more than I ever dreamed I’d be able to. “My philosophy the last 10 or 15 years is that I wanted to see my charitable dollars spent. I want to enjoy the fruits of watching them grow in my lifetime and be put to work. It’s kind of selfish.” Burress, whose family owned a thriving construction equipment company, established a private family foundation in the 1980s through which he channeled his charitable donations. But when the time and expense of managing it became onerous, he turned to The WinstonSalem Foundation to handle his giving. “I knew the work they did. I knew they were efficient. I knew their investment philosophy, and I had a great deal of confidence in that.” Both John and his wife Mary Louise had become acquainted with the Foundation through decades of volunteer work with local nonprofits. In 2003, he began serving on the Foundation Committee and became increasingly involved in all aspects of its work and service. He set up his first donor-advised fund with the Foundation in 2004. “I saw how they operated, and I became more and more convinced that the work they did was the best thing we could have in our community for continuity and longevity,” he explains. “Historically, the Foundation’s investment managers are near the top of all foundations on both three-year and five-year annualized returns. They are great stewards of your money, my money, and the Foundation’s money.”

The John W. Burress Community Fund was established as an unrestricted fund in 2007, followed by the John W. Burress Advised Fund in 2008. John served on the Foundation’s governing board from 2003-2010. Mary Louise and John are also members of the Foundation’s Legacy Society.

When leaders of the Foundation first considered moving their offices to 751 West Fourth Street a few years ago, the first call they made was to John Burress. Without hesitation, he and Mary Louise committed the lead gift that helped make the move possible. Now on the third floor is the Burress Family Center for Philanthropy, a charitable hub where nonprofits can come together to learn and share their ideas. These days this generous advocate is focusing his attention on building up the Foundation’s unrestricted funds, which support Community Grants to local nonprofits to meet challenges and opportunities in Forsyth County, even as they change over time. He plans to leave a significant portion of his estate to the Foundation in perpetuity for that purpose. “For the Foundation to have less than $3 million a year in unrestricted dollars to make grants is quite small. I want to add to that when I’m gone, and I’m asking others to do the same,” he says. “I think the community can best benefit from unrestricted dollars that can be granted to nonprofits doing innovative and essential work, and I trust the Foundation’s time-tested and excellent judgment to accomplish that.”

Giving From the Heart Few people knew the philanthrophic side of Gordon Pfefferkorn. A simple man, he eschewed spending money on material things and instead gave his resources to empower countless young people in Forsyth County to further their education with scholarships through The Winston-Salem Foundation. That’s how he preferred to live his life. No fuss or flattery. “He enjoyed the anonymity of it. But I believe people are coming to realize his generosity since he has passed away,” Susan Pfefferkorn says of her father, who died in 2017 at the age of 86. “He would be very uncomfortable knowing I was even having this conversation,” she adds with a smile. “But it’s a wonderful opportunity for me to share what an honor it was for me to be his daughter and to have a father who was as generous as he was.” Indeed, the well-respected mortgage banker, who followed the financial markets like a hawk, had a tender heart, and established numerous funds with the Foundation that focused on education. Gordon’s interest was rooted in his belief that educated young people will become successful members of society who, in turn, will “pay it forward” to enrich the communities where they live. In short, he viewed education as the most effective way to change the course of the community in which he was born and raised. And he certainly did not want financial hardship standing in the way of a good education. Gordon’s relationship with the Foundation dates back to 1993, when he established funds to support an array of nonprofits, schools, and colleges. In 2004, Gordon and his wife June (“Tommye”) endowed their first scholarship fund at the Foundation based on both need and merit for Forsyth County students attending North Carolina colleges and universities. Six months later they endowed a scholarship for local students interested in obtaining technical training or associate degrees at Forsyth Tech. In 2014, recognizing that many students with the greatest need were being turned away because the Foundation didn’t have enough funding to assist them, he

The L. Gordon, Jr. and June D. Pfefferkorn Scholarship and the L. Gordon, Jr. and June D. Pfefferkorn Scholarship Fund for Forsyth Technical Community College were established in 2004. The L. Gordon, Jr. and June D. Pfefferkorn Student Aid Fund was established in 2014 to support financial needbased scholarships. In 2017, Gordon’s estate funded the Pfefferkorn Family Charitable Fund, an unrestricted fund, as well as two donor-advised funds for his children.

created yet another endowment dedicated solely to these students. And at his death, three new family charitable funds were established. Susan, who along with her brother Rick worked for the family business, says the funds are quite simply her father’s way of saying thank you to the community of which he had been a part. “He was always appreciative of the Winston-Salem community who came to The Pfefferkorn Company to secure financing for their homes. This was his way of wanting to give back to the community that helped us create a successful company. “He was a very humble man and did this because this is what he felt in his heart.”

Members of Youth Grantmakers in Action

“YGA has definitely impacted my adulthood because it instilled in me the importance of giving back and the power of the youth voice. I learned about community service, public speaking, and how to compromise and build consensus. I walked away knowing that I’m valued, that I can make a difference, and that I can sit down with adults and make important decisions just as they do.” –MEGAN MILLS YGA alumnus

Focusing On Education Richard and Becky Davis believe in education. “To me education is the key to our success,” says Richard, who believes it generates more opportunities for individuals, not only with work, but also with housing, health, longevity and overall quality of life. The couple’s commitment to education is evident in their community work spanning decades with all sorts of age groups and nonprofits. Becky volunteered at St. Philips Moravian Church Day Care for preschool children. “They were a lot of fun,” she says, then smiles and adds quietly, “I spoiled a lot of them.” Throughout Richard’s extensive service, including membership on the boards of The Winston-Salem Foundation, the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Forsyth County and the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, he has seen first-hand how education impacts the community. As board chair for the Chamber, the United Way, and Appalachian State University, he became heavily involved in educational initiatives to positively impact school success and, ultimately, high school graduation rates. In 2010, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust established a field of interest fund for education at the Foundation to honor Richard’s board service, and the Davises have continued to add to it. Their fund gives the Foundation flexibility to make timely Community Grants for educational programming. “The Foundation has the freedom to grant those funds to whatever organization it feels deserves it most or can have the most impact,” Richard says. “They know the needs and they review all the grant applications. They make the decision as to what is a wise investment and who would manage these grants well. They know this because it’s their business to know.” The Foundation appealed to Richard, who studied accounting at the University of Maryland before working for the Internal Revenue Service and Wachovia Bank.

The Richard and Becky Davis Fund for Education, a field of interest fund for education, was established in 2010 in honor of Richard’s service on the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust board. Richard is a past member of The Winston-Salem Foundation Committee as well as a past Advisory Committee chair of the Foundation’s Black Philanthropy Initiative. The Davises are also members of the Foundation’s Legacy Society.

“Nobody does it better,” he says. “They give donors total transparency regarding the funds that are invested there, and I do mean invested. Not only do you see that your funds are doing a whole lot of good, you see how well the funds are managed over the years. That fund will continue to grow and will be able to assist and help more people and more causes.” Both Becky and Richard learned the importance of giving back to their community when they were children. “My dad used to say, ‘The more you give, the more you will receive,” Becky says. Richard’s grandmother taught him to always share. “If you have something and the next person has nothing, it’s your duty to share with that person,” he recalls. “She told me to always keep in mind you want to leave this earth a better place than you found it. I’ve always been the kind of person that if I see someone in need I try to help them. It’s just part of my life.”

“My hopes and dreams for Winston-Salem would be a future where your educational and your life outcomes are not predetermined by your socioeconomic status, the zip code that you live in, or by the color of your skin. It would be a place where everyone has equal footing, and everyone has the opportunity to be successful.” – W E N DY P O T E AT Say Yes Guilford, formerly The Forsyth Promise

How We’re Moving Ahead As the Foundation enters its second century, we are firmly committed to our north star, a vision for Forsyth County, which is a generous and trusting community where everyone is thriving. We recognize that educational and economic opportunities during the Foundation’s first century were not available to all our neighbors, especially those of color. As we have learned, this is not by accident, but a direct result of the structural racism that has existed in our country for over 400 years. Data shows significant racial, economic, and residential disparities among communities

BUILDING AN INCLUSIVE ECONOMY

Access to efficient and affordable transportation Reduction in the racial wealth gap

of color in Forsyth County and beyond, and we are committing significant resources to building equity for residents of color in our community. We have developed two broad focus areas for our Community Investments — Building an Inclusive Economy and Advancing Equity in Education, and we further identified six priorities within our two new focus areas. The priorities below reflect areas where significant levels of inequity persist, where the community says our resources are most needed, and where we believe we can make the greatest impact now and for the foreseeable future.

ADVANCING EQUITY IN EDUCATION

Anti-bias culture and practices in educational settings (Pre-K to Post-secondary) Positive/constructive behavior intervention strategies (Pre-K to 12) Racially and economically diverse public schools (K to 12)

As we move forward, the Foundation is directing significant flexible resources to achieve our priorities through: Active partnerships with other local organizations working in this area

Support for Community Development Corporations building investment in underserved neighborhoods

Proactive and responsive grantmaking to move this work forward

Mission-Aligned Investments to support businesses and organizations working for social change in Forsyth County

Scholarship support as an economic mobility tool

OUR COMMITMENT TO RACIAL EQUITY We are committed to advancing racial equity across all our work in Forsyth County because we believe it is unacceptable that today race and zip code can serve as reliable predictors of an individual’s positive or negative educational, health, and economic outcomes. Systems, including institutions, policies, and resource allocation in our community, have played a major role in this outcome, and it’s crucial to focus on these systems to affect real change.
