“I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
- Matthew 25:40
In order to establish a permanent source of charitable funds for the benefit of the parishioners of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church and our community at large, trustees elected by our General Assembly created the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Foundation of Winston Salem on November 14th, 1984.
All contributions to the Foundation are held in perpetuity; only income from the principle investment is distributed through the Foundation as charitable funds.
