ONE DOLLAR invested today becomes
ONE KID'S brighter tomorrow.

Memphis Education Fund is committed to helping every child in Memphis have access to a great public school.  How? By fueling targeted innovation, inspiration and investment - in teachers, schools and communities.

Memphis Education Fund was created to enhance this work by providing alignment across sectors of our educational community, which leads to a more integrated, collaborative and accountable approach to improving schools.

Back to School should mean the same for all kids. We believe it can.
