Our Mission

The Adam Foundation invests in projects, programs, and organizations that effectively support its mission:


The Adam Foundation promotes the identity, strength, and well-being of the local gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community and supports organizations serving persons living with HIV and AIDS.


When The Adam Foundation began in 1990, the primary goal was to provide funds for those in need in the LGBT community...specifically members who were directly affected by HIV / AIDS.  The Adam Foundation remains steadfast in its commitment to our healthcare-based legacy.


As a funding resource, we are equally proud that our local philanthropy over the past two decades has expanded to projects on a broader scope of issues that affect our LGBT community. We remain eager to fund new projects that reflect emerging needs in Forsyth County.  Find a complete list of the AF INITIATIVES here.


Since its founding in 1990, The Adam Foundation has GIVEN BACK more than $500,000 in community support.
