Our approach revolves around identifying, nurturing, and supporting high-impact initiatives that contribute significantly to the growth and prosperity of Memphis. To ensure comprehensive progress, we focus on four key areas of influence:
- Recruit actively engaged public and private partners who have the capital, influence, time and energy to effect change.
- Collaborate with partners to develop imaginative programs with measurable objectives.
- Cultivate and promote progressive solutions to community issues.
- Seek opportunities to strengthen the philanthropy of others. Establish a change network that allows high-impact programs to learn from each other and breed new forces of progress.
- Support community leaders who understand that demographics do not equal destiny.
- Maintain a set of best practices in grant making that are replicable in other cities.
- Lead the movement to broaden the city’s vision for itself.
Join us on this transformative journey as we work hand-in-hand with the people of Memphis to build a better, brighter tomorrow. Together, we can shape a thriving, world-class city that serves as a beacon of inspiration for generations to come.
