Corporate Partners


Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.

The Giving Hour seeks Memphis-area corporate partners to support the irreplaceable work of mentoring our city’s youth.

By providing mentors your corporation and employee pool will:

  • Earn community service credits
  • Become a stronger and more cohesive team
  • Help to build a better future for Memphis
  • Have your Corporation Recognized by Mayor Strickland as a Giving Hour Mentor

If your corporation wants to support The Giving Hour and mentoring in Memphis, please contact us at Our team will set up an advisory appointment to help define and develop the type of mentorship programs that would best benefit your corporation and the community.
