Enriching Education

We believe in the value of a great education.


We recognize how important education is to an individual and a great education often becomes the key to access all opportunities.  We manage our portfolio across the age spectrum and have significant gifts in place to ensure all people of all ages can attain a strong and quality education in our city.  

We partnered with Porter Leath and their efforts to build a premiere PreK Center in South Memphis.  We have a long-standing partnership with Teach for America and a recent partnership with Memphis Teachers Residency where quality teachers are advancing students' learning. We have been engaged in the local efforts of the Shelby County School system through the Teacher Leadership Effectiveness strategy and serve on the TLE Advisory Board. Our longest gifts in place have been with our local colleges and universities where we manage a KWFF Scholarship program with Christian Brothers CollegeRhodes CollegeUniversity of Memphis, and Memphis Theological Seminary.

Eliminate from your vocabulary the words, "I don't think I can" and substitute, " I know I can."
