These grants were made using participatory grantmaking
, which means that instead of grant decisions being made by our staff, they were made primarily by a community committee comprised of residents with lived experience and those with expertise in local transportation issues. We're committed to listening, learning, and leading alongside those who are directly impacted, so together we can disrupt inequities, reduce barriers, and strengthen our community.
Our grantee partners
include Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministries
, Forsyth Technical Community College
, Island CultureZ, Salvation Army
, Shepherd's Center of Greater Winston-Salem
, and Shepherd's Center of Kernersville
