Supporting non-profits - Kernersville Foundation awards grants to Kernersville’s non-profits

The Kernersville Foundation has again, this year, distributed significant grant funding to a number of non-profit organizations in the Kernersville community, even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and reduced funding support.

2020 Charities Check

In total, 16 non-profits have received grants in amounts ranging from $500 to $10,000. The total 2020 grant distribution is $75,000.
Each year, the Kernersville Foundation holds an annual banquet in which they award grants to non-profits in Kernersville. This year, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kernersville Foundation will not be hosting the annual event. (Full article)

2018 Annual Fundraising Campaign


“Community Discussion on the Opioid Crisis”
Sept. 27, 2017Opioid Discussion

The Kernersville Foundation hosted a panel discussion this morning related to the deadly epidemic that is ravaging our communities. Panel members included Dr. Chan Badger (Novant Health Region Physician Leader), Captain Tara Tucker ( Quality Management Coordinator Forsyth County EMS), Chief Tim Summers (Kernersville Police Department), The Honorable Lisa Menefee (Chief District Court Judge for Forsyth County), Dr. Pete Kunkle (Senior Pastor of First Christian Church) and was facilitated by WXII’s Kenny Beck.

Deaths from opioid addiction have increased over 700% in Forsyth County since 1999. This situation must be addressed and remedied before more precious lives are lost.

September, 2018

Dear Friends,

The Kernersville Foundation is pleased to announce the 2018 Annual Campaign kick-off that begins September 1 and runs through October 15, 2018.  Town Mayor Dawn Morgan has declared September 2018 as “Kernersville Foundation Month.”

The campaign’s goal is to meet the human needs found right here in Kernersville. Your support, along with others in our community, makes this goal possible each year.

We’ve all seen Kernersville neighbors in need – a homeless person or hungry child, an elderly friend who needs a ride to an appointment, a person who can use a helping hand to find a job and other situations where help is needed. My life is better, knowing that I am giving to deserving people.  I am glad that I can share with you that ability to help our neighbors again this year.

The Foundation actively assists non-profits serving the Kernersville community. Since 1999, we have facilitated a greater number of grants each year. The Kernersville Foundation, Inc., has awarded two hundred thirty-six grants totaling $537,435 to the following local agencies:

Care Net Counseling
Ciener Botanical Garden
Crisis Control Ministry
Friends of the Library
Kernersville Cares for Kids
Kernersville Museum
Kernersville Little Theatre
Shepherd’s Center
Lamb Foundation
Kernersville Cycling Club
Korner’s Folly 
Next Step Ministries
Kernersville Downtown Council
Kernersville Family YMCA
Mayor’s Council for Persons with Disabilities
Kernersville Christmas Stocking

Kernersville has a reputation as a caring community and the citizens of Kernersville have always come together to meet the needs of their neighbors. Since the Kernersville Foundation, Inc. is made up of all volunteers, you are assured 100 % of any donation or gift you make goes directly to the local non-profit agency(s) of your choice or as directed by the Advisory Board.  The Community Advisory Board is comprised of representatives from Kernersville civic clubs and other community leaders to provide a broad view of the local needs. 
Thank you in advance for your support during the annual campaign which is important to continue our mission to serve the community
