About the Fund

Community LIFT’s Empowerment Fund provides financial support to grassroots leaders and organizations for community work that improves the quality of life in Memphis’ under-resourced neighborhoods.  Residents, business or property owners, and neighborhood associations can apply for grants of up to $2,500 to fund community-supported projects that promote community cohesion, improve the physical spaces in the neighborhood, cultivate financial stability, and/or assist neighborhood stakeholders in collaborative action.

THANK YOU TO OUR INVESTORS

The 2020 round of the Memphis Empowerment Fund would not be possible without generous investments from the Assisi Foundation, Hyde Family Foundations, Kresge Foundation, and many passionate Memphians.
