Mid-South Philanthropy Network

Who We Are

Mid-South Philanthropy Network (formerly Memphis Grantmakers Forum) is a regional membership network of people and organizations dedicated to working to make our region better through responsible, sustainable philanthropy.

What We Do

  • Connect grantmakers to each other

  • Connect grantmakers to knowledge and resources

  • Facilitate collaboration among funders and across sectors

  • Increase awareness about philanthropy’s role and impact in communities

  • Attract more resources to the Mid-South region

Please note: Mid-South Philanthropy Network (MPN) does not award grants and does not accept proposals seeking financial support.

Non-solicitation Policy: Since a vital role of MPN is to provide an opportunity for grantmakers to meet in a collegial and respectful atmosphere, it is not appropriate to solicit donations at MPN programs, events and other functions. Collaborative grantmaking is encouraged. Organizations that have a dual grantmaking and grantseeking role agree that their development staff will not utilize MPN activities or resources for fundraising/development purposes.
