Investments In Schools

Memphis Education Fund envisions a future in which all students attend highly-effective and innovative schools that help them achieve their postsecondary and career goals. Working towards this vision, Memphis Education Fund utilizes a data-driven, research based strategy to inform our investments in programs that provide direct-to-school supports and development of innovative school design and models.
