You are pooling your dollars with others to give more to nonprofits than many people could do alone. GiVE 365 grants allow those nonprofits to execute meaningful programs and projects in the Greater Memphis community.
You will learn about community issues and the nonprofits in Greater Memphis working to address them—whether through online communications and voting or in person at events. You will have the opportunity to learn how to be a strategic philanthropist and to see work of local nonprofits first-hand.
You will receive a monthly GiVE 365 eNews with information about upcoming events, the grant cycle, stories of grantee successes, and member spotlights. You will also receive mailed invitations to special GiVE 365 and Community Foundation events. Make sure to follow GiVE 365 Memphis on Facebook and Twitter for updates on the program.
You can be as active as you would like in the grantmaking process. Some members let their voting do the talking. Others attend events or join a grant review team. GiVE 365 membership is inclusive and flexible—so you can engage in a way that fits your schedule and interests.
You are joining a diverse group of members, in their 20s to their 70s, from 35 different ZIP codes. Membership is a fun and social way to meet and interact with like-minded people who want to see our community thrive.
At the heart of GiVE 365 is the grantmaking process, which exposes members to a diverse range of social issues and to the community-based efforts working to address them. Be part of a collective giving initiative that gives you a voice in choosing a theme, selecting grantees, and donating thousands of dollars a year to inspiring organizations.
