Memphis AFN connects funders and their peers in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors. Together they share promising programs and smart strategies, gather knowledge to make their grantmaking more effective, and work to increase investments in asset building.
Membership is open to funders (including invited intermediaries) who invest in a range of initiatives that build assets for Memphis residents.

How We Work
- Inform: Highlight promising practices, key issues, and innovations in the field through funder-only dialogues as well as other convenings. Members provide an insightful regional voice to inform national conversations.
- Connect: Members learn from each other and from other organizations as they seek solutions to local challenges related to asset-building.
- Influence: Engage key stakeholders to grow their knowledge and support. This includes efforts to raise the visibility of asset-building within the broader community of foundations, public-sector funders, and financial institutions.
- Build: Seek to increase the number of grantmakers and resources focused on economic well-being. Members leverage one another’s interests and investments and actively look for additional funders willing to invest in the Memphis region.
