Graduate Memphis is generously funded by a grant from the Plough Foundation. The Plough Foundation is dedicated to concentrating their resources to nonprofits who, like Graduate Memphis, strive to overcome issues in our society.
It is through this generous grant that Graduate Memphis was able to open the College Resource Center in partnership with the Memphis Public Library and Information Center. The College Resource Center is located inside the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library on the first floor and is open seven days a week to walk-ins and appointments alike.
Additional funding goes towards our workshops, whose instruction and materials we are able to offer free to our students. We also are able to offer luncheons, open houses, education fairs, and student success celebrations for our adult learners and their families. We strive to advertise our services to all of the Memphis community, and perhaps you’ve seen our outdoor advertising on any of our city’s busy streets!
We are thankful to all of our partners and donors, without whom we would be able to offer all of our advising services for free. If you are dedicated to college attainment for adults, you can find out more about donations on the Leadership Memphis page. Additional inquiries can be sent to David Williams, CEO and President of Leadership Memphis.
