Community Foundation of Greater Memphis

Memphis, Tennessee



Dedicated to strengthening the Memphis community through philanthropy, the foundation is a founding member and fiscal sponsor of Community LIFT, a local community development organization that facilitates strategic investments in distressed neighborhoods to accelerate revitalization, build human capacity, promote economic and community development and improve the quality of life. A two-year grant from our Arts and Culture Program and Cross Disciplinary Fund strengthens Community LIFT’s overall operations and advances its Memphis Music Magnet initiative in the Soulsville neighborhood.
