Grants and Programs

Founded in 1995, The Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis (WFGM) is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization committed to improving the wellbeing of economically vulnerable women and families annually through philanthropy and grant making initiatives, leadership, and collaboration. WFGM has played a major role as a backbone organization aligning people, resources, and coordinating community-based services through the two-generation approach to reduce poverty in Memphis.

Since 1996, $18.2 million we have awarded grants to over 500 programs involving more than 100 local nonprofits, including investments in advocacy and research.

Vision 2020

Announced in 2015, the overarching purpose of the Vision 2020 Strategic Plan is to reduce poverty by five percent over five years in zip code 38126. The five goals of WFGM’s Vision 2020 Strategic Plan revolve around:
