New Benefactors of Old Salem
“The mission of the New Benefactors of Old Salem is to provide Old Salem Museums & Gardens with the support of Winston-Salem’s young professional community (ages 21-40 years old) by promoting awareness and engagement to our target demographic through social, service, and professional networking opportunities. We do so by (1) highlighting the many benefits of the Museums and Gardens through our social events and (2) funding and developing special projects with the money we’re able to raise.”
By becoming a member of the New Benefactors, you will have lots of fun through unique access to experiences in Old Salem, while at the same time meeting others with similar likes and interests.
