The Hyde Family Foundation makes grants that empower the people and programs making a real difference in the community.
We support initiatives that focus on these four impact areas:
Vibrant Spaces
& Communities
Thriving Arts
& Culture
Engaged Leadership
& Civic Pride
Before beginning an application, please thoroughly review the Hyde Family Foundation’s impact areas and Theories of Change and Action.  We also ask that non-current grantee organizations that plan to apply at upcoming deadlines please contact the appropriate Program Director or Officer prior to submitting an application to discuss the strategic alignment of a potential new request. If the program staff member believes your organization and/or project may fit within the Foundation’s interests, you may submit an application for funding through our website.
To apply, please go to our Apply page.

Attention Thriving Arts and Culture grant applicants

The Hyde Family Foundation will not accept applications from new arts and culture organizations until August 1, 2024, with grant funding disbursed in or after 2025. We have made the difficult decision to focus our funding and support on our current arts and culture grantees. We appreciate your understanding and hope that you stay connected for future updates and opportunities. We are grateful for your organization’s contributions to our rich culture. For potential grant seekers, we encourage you to look at grant opportunities through ArtsMemphis.
