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.
