Beyond the Classroom

The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis has embarked on an innovative, multi-year initiative called Beyond the Classroom to strengthen organizations serving K-12 students in Memphis during their out-of-school time.

We launched Year One (2017) with five diverse, youth-serving organizations. Those agencies have already shown promising results, and we continue to develop a growing network of partners engaged in this work. Learn more about the Beyond the Classroom initative.

Even with our significant investment, the Community Foundation alone can only effect change for a limited number of organizations. With co-investment from our donors and others in the community, we can expand this work to include even more partner agencies in Year Three and beyond, and in turn produce even greater results for our kids. Consider a gift to the Community Partnership Fund to support Beyond the Classroom.
