Strengthening our community through philanthropy
Every donor has those issues and organizations for which he or she is most passionate. Magnify that passion by our nearly 1,000 fund holders, and it creates a cohesive support system that touches the arts, health and human services, education, and houses of worship across our community.
For those who wish to pool their resources, opportunities like GiVE 365 and the Community Partnership Fund let contributors make a greater impact for carefully researched organizations that are making a real difference.
We are proud that approximately 70 percent of all giving through the Community Foundation goes to local organizations. When driving our city streets, attending an arts performance, or hearing success stories about our youth, one can see the direct influence of the charitable people who care so much about this community. That giving is made all the more effective through the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis. Together we are working to build a better Mid-South and create opportunities for those who live here.
