You can do a lot with $1.
GiVE 365 is a dollar-a-day giving circle that lets members pool their money and make a positive impact on our community through grants to nonprofits.
Formed in 2010, GiVE 365 was created by a group of community leaders and the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis to encourage philanthropy in a new group of donors. Since its inception, GiVE 365 has grown to 240 member households and has provided $495,190 in grants to local community groups and initiatives. In addition to the grant pool, GiVE 365 has grown its endowment to just over $600,000 in its first eight years of operation.
GiVE 365 unites and informs emerging philanthropists to make a collective impact on Greater Memphis.
