Because our history is yours. For more than sixty years, the Wake Forest College Birthplace Society has preserved and shared the unique history, traditions, and culture of Wake Forest University—located for its first 122 years in the Town of Wake Forest, NC. The nonprofit Society owns and operates the Wake Forest Historical Museum, where the Wake Forest story is interpreted through an extensive collection of artifacts, photographs, and documents. The Society is affiliated with, but not officially part of, the University and its professional staff are University employees. New and exciting research into our early days as one of the first institutions of higher learning in North Carolina is underway. By telling the story of Wake Forest College from its founding in 1834 through its move to Winston-Salem in 1956, we gain the ability to know our past and look toward our future. Make your gift now to help preserve the history of Wake Forest.
September 8 is Deacs Day of Giving, a 24 hour fundraising event in support of all things Wake Forest.
Today is your chance to make the most out of your gift and show off your Deacon Pride.
Every donation will count toward different challenges/competitions throughout the day, and you can be one of the 2,020 donors helping us unlock an additional $150,000 gift for the University from Michael A. DeMayo, Class of 1987.
