Message from the Executive Director/CAO


When I think about the many families’ lives that we have touched for more than 20 years, I am inspired. The Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis (WFGM) serves as a philanthropic organization solely focused on leading change by women and for women in our community.

When you hear the word, “Philanthropy,” what do you think? Benevolence, generosity, public-spiritedness, social conscience and charity are a few words that come to mind.  But, what does that mean? Philanthropy is the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes. 

Since 1996, the Women’s Foundation has awarded $18.2 million to over 500 programs involving more than 100 local non-profits, including investments in advocacy and research. We advocate on behalf of women by working with high-level business leaders and government officials to understand issues surrounding poverty and then by partnering with them to solve problems. 

To learn more about the Women’s Foundation and how you can share our vision, explore our website or call our office at 901-578-9346.


My Best,

Ruby Bright
