Grizzlies Foundation

The Memphis Grizzlies Foundation is dedicated to harnessing the power and promise of sport to transform lives.

39 percent of all children in Shelby County are growing up in poverty. Mentoring offers a chance to break this insularity and begin a mutually enriching relationship that can help reshape the future for so many young people in Memphis. By identifying YOUTH MENTORING, EDUCATION and ENRICHMENT programs that work, Memphis Grizzlies Foundation helps close the opportunity gap for children in underserved communities across Memphis.
