Past grantees

GiVE 365 chooses an annual theme to guide its grant making for that year. Members select the grantees after researching the applicant organizations and hearing three-minute presentations at a finalist event. Annual themes have been:

  • 2017: "Foundations for the Future: programs that will help youth meet their potential."

  • 2016: "Memphis 2020: programs that will have a tangible impact on Memphis in the next five years."

  • 2015: "And now for something completely different" - small grants to support new projects or programs that add value to the community and have a likelihood of success.

  • 2014: "Collaboration for Change" - partnerships that support creative problem-solving in the community.

  • 2013: "Home is Where the Heart Is" - projects to make Memphis neighborhoods more vibrant, livable, and secure.

  • 2012: "Eyes on the Prize" - organizations helping students graduate from high school or college

  • 2011: "Fishing Lessons" - based on the adage: Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.

  • 2010: "Fostering Community in Memphis"
