Leadership Winston-Salem, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, relies on community partners such as local organizations, corporations and individuals for funding on an annual basis. Approximately 53% of the budget is covered by tuition fees. The remainder must be obtained through fundraising efforts which are a critical component to ensure Leadership Winston-Salem’s success and sustainability.

There are a variety of ways to help us with our mission of educating, connecting and energizing leaders to serve and improve the community.

Our sponsorship partners provide critical financial support for each program day and for special alumni special events. Learn more.
