Nonprofit Organizations


The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.

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

By providing mentors, your nonprofit organization will:

  • Help to build a better future for Memphis
  • Demonstrate the giving spirit of nonprofit organizations
  • Have your organization Recognized by Mayor Strickland as a Giving Hour Mentor

If your organization 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 organization and the community.
