Alumni Donor Opportunities

Leadership Memphis thanks our Alumni for working together for the good of the community.

Everyone wants to be the best and so it has been with every Leadership Memphis class since our founding in 1979.  You were part of the Best Class Ever, but then, you already knew that. You also know a city is only as strong as its community leaders and that we must constantly endeavor to make Memphis a better place by supporting the development of more community leaders.

Join us as we celebrate nearly 45 years of preparing and mobilizing leaders to work together for the good of the whole community!  Leadership Memphis will be turning 45 years old in 2023!  We have some exciting plans to engage you all to celebrate the Sapphire anniversary of Leadership Memphis.  Rev up your engines and rally your class as we prepare to celebrate you and 45 years of connecting leaders to leaders, leaders to information, and leaders to the community.

Leadership Memphis tuition accounts for only 55% of our operating expenses, leaving a 45% gap.  We count heavily on our corporate and alumni sponsors to pay it forward each year – to give generously so that others can experience Leadership Memphis.  Every tax-deductible contribution and sponsorship makes a difference, no matter the amount.  Please impact Leadership Memphis with your donation today, so we can continue to develop the community leaders of tomorrow.
