The Face to Face Speaker Forum prides itself in being a vital part of the community. We strive to provide unparalleled access and experiences in a variety of different ways listed below.

Share The Vision

The Face to Face Speaker Forum has implemented a community outreach program called Share the Vision. This program allows us to offer discounted tickets to area nonprofit organizations to attend individual events in our series. For more information about our Share the Vision program, please email or call (336) 758-6615.

Collaborate Initiative

For the first time, all area institutions of higher learning are coming together to participate in the Face to Face Speaker Forum. All area students can attend the Student Led event. A small number of complimentary tickets to the Keynote event are available by request. For more information about the Collaborate Initiative or to request tickets, please click here.

Ticket Donation Program

With approximately one in five youths in the United States living below the federal poverty level (U.S. Census, 2014), experiencing enriching cultural activities is challenging for some and impossible for many. Our goal is to reach some of these students through our ticket donation program. Season subscribers and Keynote Society members are encouraged to donate seats that would otherwise go unused. These tickets are offered to students in the community. For more information about the Ticket Donation Program, please click here.

Book Donation Program

In partnership with Bookmarks, the Face to Face Speaker Forum donates copies of our speakers’ books to various Little Free Libraries in the Winston-Salem community.

Continuing the Conversation

Following events in our Social Justice and Global Affairs pillar and in partnership with various nonprofits, the Face to Face Speaker Forum sponsors community conversations. These conversations are free and open to the public. For more information, please visit our event page.

Auction Requests

The Face to Face Speaker Series receives numerous requests each year for donations to area schools, organizations and other nonprofit associations and causes. Whenever possible, Face to Face donates tickets to an individual event to demonstrate our continuing support of local communities. To make an official request, please email
