2020 Grant Reviewers

Five teams elevate winning grantees

(Apr. 30, 2020) GiVE 365 members are given the opportunity to further engage in the annual grantmaking process by reviewing applications with a team and making thoughtful and objective recommendations for grant finalists. THANK YOU to the 40 members who volunteered to serve on grant review teams in 2020. 

Our awesome teams dedicated hours to review, research, and meet virtually to recommend 10 nonprofit finalists they thought really have what it takes to make a difference, to help Memphians find stable and safe housing and lead thriving lives. Because of GiVERs' generosity, the membership had enough money to fully fund all finalists. At this troubling and uncertain time, the Advisory Team decided to go ahead and deploy dollars to those 10 organizations on the front lines serving our most vulnerable neighbors.
