Forsyth County 
Workplace Campaign

May 17-31, 2024
 

Forsyth County Government is celebrating the arts from May 17 to May 31! Welcome to our campaign page.  

Forsyth County is an art-rich community, and county leadership is excited to provide an opportunity for employees to support the local arts community. Once again, nearly every department has produced some visible effort to raise money for the arts.
