Leadership Memphis

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.

Leadership Memphis is celebrating our 45th Anniversary and will name the winner of the Sapphire Class competition in at the Leadership Awards & 45th Anniversary Celebration in March 2024. Help your class be THE BEST CLASS EVER by renewing your gift or making your first donation to support your class’ efforts. Your gift will ensure that generations to come will have the opportunity to experience Leadership Memphis as you did and continue the tradition of best-in-class leadership programming.

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.
