In honor of Mother’s Day, we’d like to suggest you pass it on. That’s right, pass along the benefits you’ve received in life so that other mothers like you can prosper and grow.
One philanthropic organization in Memphis is dedicated to living that mission. For the past 20 years, the Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis (WFGM) has provided funding to enable social change for women and families. Working with more than 100 nonprofits, the organization has contributed $7.8 million to 450 programs that lead women and children on a path to economic self-sufficiency and success.
And the money has come from people like you.
What does success look like?
Read about Renisha Mayes, the One Cool Mom profiled this month. She is a direct benefactor of the programs funded by the Women’s Foundation, programs that have helped her reach her potential.
This month, you can take part in that success story. In celebration of the organization’s 20th anniversary, WFGM is hosting the Moms Move Memphis Challenge. The goal is to reduce poverty by one percent per year by 2020 in the 38126 area code, the poorest neighborhood in Memphis.
Help WFGM meet the Moms Move Memphis Challenge of $15,000 by May 31.
