Elevating Neighborhoods. Advancing Memphis.

Community LIFT

Since 2011, LIFT has been a catalyst for change, working to advance Memphis by accelerating the revival of its disinvested neighborhoods.  We pursue national relationships and dollars and align them with local resources. Together, those investments are then strategically distributed in the form of grants and loans primarily to Community Development Corps., Grassroots Leaders, and Neighborhood Businesses.

CDC Capacity Fund

We developed the CDC Capacity Fund to help address Memphis’ broken cycle of community reinvestment. We know that with increased investment, CDCs can have a larger impact on the communities and people they serve.
