2015-2016 ANNUAL REPORT
Philanthropy. Leadership. Collaboration.
For more than 20 years, The Womenâ€™s Foundation for a Greater Memphis has been uniting women and helping to break the cycle of poverty through our philanthropy, leadership and collaboration. Our mission is to encourage philanthropy, foster leadership among women and support programs that enable women and children to reach their full potential. Our vision is to be an agent of change committed to a community of wellbeing and prosperity, where women live in sufficiency, strength, and safety, sharing their leadership and empowering their children.
This annual report is dedicated to Mary L. Wolff (1950-2015) and Henry D. Varnell Jr. (1928-2015) for their years of generous support and recent bequests to the Womenâ€™s Foundation for a Greater Memphis.
The Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis (WFGM) is proud to share our accomplishments for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. We are thankful for the contributions of our donors, volunteers, and community partners. Through philanthropy, leadership, and collaboration, each of you has helped us with Moving the Vision Forward. PHILANTHROPY With your support, WFGM raised over $1 million locally and an additional $1 million nationally for a record-breaking $2.5 million total funds from individuals, corporations and foundations. We advanced into the second year of our Vision 2020 Strategic Plan to reduce poverty by five percent over five years in zip code 38126, where 62 percent of adults and 76 percent of children live at or below the poverty line. At the Annual Tribute Luncheon, we announced over a $1 million investment to 22 grantee partners with programs focused on supporting the goals of Vision 2020 and introduced the WFGM Membership Campaign. LEADERSHIP Our board, trustees, staff, and volunteers are Moving the Vision Forward through their leadership and expertise, celebrating achievements in their respective fields both locally and nationally. WFGM successfully elevated our recognition of women’s leadership through one of our signature fundraising events, the Legends Award Reception. The award honors women in the Greater Memphis area whose life work represents the mission and vision of the Women’s Foundation. COLLABORATION The support of our donors made it possible for WFGM to leverage local and national partnerships, expanding our economic footprint and garnering millions in grants to support and implement services geared towards the economic security of women and their families while continuing conversations to tackle women’s issues. Moving the Vision Forward takes more than a single organization, it takes each one of our donors, board members, trustees, staff, volunteers and community partners to make an impact. It takes you. Thank you for another successful year committed to the families of this community. Sincerely,
Dr. Beverly Cross

The collective economic and social impact of the life-long work of the 2016 Legends Award Honorees spans across education, culture, tourism, and the arts. In 2016, we revised the criteria for the Legends Award and created distinct categories that embody the mission and vision of the Women’s Foundation. Recipients were honored through original art and prose created in a collaborative effort between an artist and a writer to represent their life work. The pieces tour with the Legends Award Art Exhibition before becoming permanent displays in the Hall of Legends at the Baptist Memorial Hospital for Women. Honey Scheidt

2016 MODERN DAY WOMAN’S CONFERENCE
WOMEN HELPING WOMEN Nisha Powers is a WFGM Board Member and a mentor for the University of Memphis Girls Experiencing Engineering (GEE), a WFGM grantee partner. Nisha, who is also the founder of Powers Hill Design, LLC , a “boutique” civil engineering firm, met Anne Raheem at GEE. GEE is a summer program that seeks to instill young women with confidence, interest, and awareness of the wide array of career opportunities within science,
More than 150 women attended the 2016 Modern Day Woman’s Conference: The Road to 2020, hosted by the Young Women Philanthropists (YWP). YWP is an auxiliary of WFGM focused on educating, empowering, and training the next generation of philanthropic women leaders. Participants attended workshops headed by over 30 women from various professional sectors including keynote speaker Teresa Younger, President and CEO of New York’s Ms. Foundation for Women. They spoke on topics ranging from professional development and community engagement to philanthropy and leadership.
technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Anne Raheem attended the program with her twin sister Anna and was inspired to pursue engineering as a career. Anne and Anna volunteer some summers as mentors and alumni of GEE and are both freshman engineering majors at Harvard. Anne is a summer intern at Powers Hill Design, LLC. Anna also interns at an engineering firm in downtown Memphis for the summer.
FIND YOUR POWER: PROFESSIONALISM AND COMMUNICATION TIPS In May 2016 the Women’s Initiative Think Tank (WITT) hosted the panel discussion and reception, Find Your Power: Professionalism and Communication Tips. Ursula Madden, Chief Communications Officer for the City of Memphis facilitated the discussion. Panelists included Penny Aviotti, Etiquette and Protocol Consultant; Laura L. Bresee, Executive Speech and Voice Trainer for Memphis Speech Solutions; and Janas Jackson, Diversity and Affinity Groups Advisor for FedEx Express. More than 100 women networked and exchanged communication strategies for presenting oneself in executive settings at the event, which was part of a series of mixers targeting local corporate women’s initiative groups.
“One of the most interesting things about GEE is that it was one of the only summer programs I could find that focused specifically on STEM and because of this program, my goals for the future are to start my own business and make a contribution to the world in a very positive way through drug research and development with bio engineering. I really do have the University of Memphis and the Women’s Foundation to thank for helping me

Collaboration WFGM collaborates with
of local and
national agencies to link public-private partnerships to make an impact on thousands of women and their families in the Greater Memphis Area each year. Through the power of collaboration, WFGM’s impact is widespread, producing outcomes that change lives.
LOCAL COLLABORATIONS Memphis South City Initiative WFGM played a major role as a backbone organization aligning people, resources, and coordinating community-based services through the twogeneration approach. WFGM’s role is pivotal in the redevelopment and revitalization of the South City area in zip code 38126. In support of the Vision 2020 goals, WFGM worked in collaboration with the City of Memphis and the Memphis Housing Authority (MHA) to secure a $3 million Jobs Plus Award and $30 million Memphis Choice Neighborhood Implementation grant from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The federal grants total $33 million. WFGM secured the commitment of 20 local organizations for collective pledges exceeding $22 million in additional support services for families in the 38126 zip code. NATIONAL COLLABORATIONS The Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis received a $200,000 three-year grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation called Connecting Hearts, Hands and Philanthropy: A WFGM Collaborative Women of Color Project. The Women’s Foundation is also part of the Partnership for Women’s Prosperity, an $850,000 two-year grant from the Walmart Foundation awarded to six leading women’s organizations to support the economic security of women and their families.
MOVING THE VISION FORWARD Foote Home Residents Receive Tablets and Two Years of Free Internet Access The Memphis Housing Authority (MHA), Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and WFGM met with Foote Homes residents about ConnectHome, a White House national initiative to provide Internet access in low-income communities through a partnership with T-Mobile. This digital literacy program kicked off with the distribution of 600 tablets to Foote Homes residents. Each household also received free internet access for two years funded by the Women’s Foundation. “If we want families to live in the 21st century, we need them to have 24 hour access to the Internet and therefore the world.” – Ed Jennings, SE Regional Administrator, HUD 6 6
MOVING THE VISION FORWARD
WFGM was one of seven women’s funds across the country invited to attend the Inaugural United State of Women Summit convened by the White House Council on Women and Girls on June 14 in Washington D.C. Executive Director and CAO, Ruby Bright; Deputy Director, Shante K. Avant; Co-Chair of the Board, Dr. Beverly Cross; and Board Trustee Cassandra Webster joined over 5,000 women from around the world for a large-scale effort to rally together advocates of gender equality.
After moving to Memphis from D.C., Jennifer Sciubba
During the summit Prosperity Together, of which WFGM is a member, announced the expansion of the Young Women’s Initiative (YWI) to 7 women’s foundations around the country. WFGM will begin YWI in Memphis in the fall with a series of listening tours for girls 15 to 21 years old. YWI focuses on investing and catalyzing resources to improve equity and prosperity for young women WFGM joined Prosperity Together to demonstrate the collective power of Women’s Foundations in effective grant making. In November 2015 at the White House Summit on Advancing Equity for Women and Girls of Color, Prosperity Together announced a $100 million commitment to women’s economic security over five years. As part of this commitment, WFGM will invest nearly $10 million over the next five years to secure economic prosperity for women and their families through the Vision 2020 Strategic Plan.
was looking for ways to get involved in the community. Shante K. Avant, Deputy Director of WFGM, recommended she join the grants committee. “She was right, it was such a great way to get to know my new city. It really touched my heart to get to go on the site visits. My first time going to one, we were talking to some women who are homeless and they told me some of the work they are doing in peer mentoring with other women who are homeless. I was so touched by it, I got in my car and cried. It was so moving to see something good going on in the community among the people who were struggling. As a social science professor, I read about social issues at the scholarly level and in a very detached way. My experience with WFGM has really given me a greater depth of knowledge about the complexity of social problems in the city, but also given me a greater sense of optimism about how individuals can really work together to tackle those problems.” – Jennifer Sciubba
