Interfaith Winston Salem - Who We Are

We are here to facilitate learning and understanding between and among the Winston-Salem belief communities and groups. Interfaith Winston-Salem is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.   We are an all-volunteer educational group that brings together members of many faith traditions – religious and non-religious – to gain a greater understanding of and respect for each other’s traditions.  As we better understand other traditions, we hope to develop a deeper appreciation for our own that will manifest itself in active goodwill to other individuals and to the community as a whole.

We offer traditional lectures and short-term classroom studies as well as creative special events and projects that enable us to learn by experiencing other people, their beliefs and practices.

Our goal is to capitalize on the superior teaching resources of our universities and colleges, our talented clergy and spiritual leaders and other learned community residents and to offer programs at no cost to participants. When noted lecturers or special events require financial support we will request donations and seek support from foundations.

Over time, as we continue to grow and solidify our organization, we hope to share our experience with other communities that seek to address their growing interfaith diversity. 


I have seen, time and time again, the work of Interfaith Winston-Salem change lives and create hope.
