High Point is fortunate to have a local television news organization that partners with the community by promoting positive initiatives.

Fox 8 WGHP hosts a regular feature on community foundation impact in the Triad, including the foundations in Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point. We’re proud to be part of the series and encourage you to take a look at the archive of stories. Please link and share to help promote what’s being accomplished.
