Take a closer look at this year’s GiVE 365 grant theme, Equity Through Access. Hear from a roster of passionate Memphians (Adriane Johnson-Williams, Rachel Knox, and Cardell Orrin) about what access looks like for people of color in Memphis, what work has been done to address the issue, and what needs to happen to ensure we see sustainable change.
Invest in the FOREVER Funds: the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis's community-voiced, community-directed investment in Memphis and the Mid-South.
In 2021, the Mid-South COVID-19 Regional Response Fund will make a series of grant awards, totaling approximately $9.1 million, to build resilience for those hardest-hit by the coronavirus crisis.
The idea is simple. You give $365—a dollar a day—to make our community better. You pool those daily dollars with others. Then, once a year, you decide together which organizations you want to receive grants.
An initiative of the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis, we unite and inform emerging philanthropists to make a collective impact on Greater Memphis.
