The Women's Foundation for a Greater Memphis stands for philanthropy, leadership, and collaboration. We denounce violence, prejudice, and hate. We urge individual reflection, community dialogue and commitment, and action to protect future generations.

We support and understand the needs of the community, calling from all walks of life—we need to be heard.


WFGM in D.C. for the Inaugural United State of Women Summit

The Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis (WFGM) board and staff attended the Inaugural United State of Women Summit convened by the White House Council on Women and Girls on June 14 in Washington, D.C. The summit was a large-scale effort to rally together advocates of gender equality to highlight what women have achieved, identify the challenges that remain, and chart the course for addressing them. Experts, advocates, and grassroots and business leaders who work in both domestic and international arenas gathered to highlight key issues affecting women and girls. Speakers focused on economic empowerment, health and wellness, educational opportunities, violence against women, entrepreneurship and innovation, and leadership and civic engagement. WFGM joined more than 5,000 attendees as part of Prosperity Together, a nonpartisan coalition of 28 public women’s foundations across the country dedicated to improving the economic security of low-income women and their families in America.
