Improving Community

We believe in a strong Memphis.


Our founders were committed to seeing the city of Memphis stay great so we work deliberately in the Greater Memphis area to respond to community needs.  Our gifts to the community range in size and in purpose but a few of them include Hope Works, Memphis Botanic Gardens, Children's Museum of Memphis, Pink Palace Museum, MIFA, Service Over Self, Shelby Farms Park, and The Wolf River Conservancy.

We know we must understand our city's issues in order to be effective in addressing them so we are actively engaged in the Memphis Grantmakers Forum and regularly schedule conversations with non-profits and other foundations to keep abreast of pressing concerns for our city.

You need to take charge of change, or else change will take charge of you.
