Empowering Leaders Transforming communities

Working together, loving our city

Here at Memphis Leadership Foundation (MLF) our mission is to EQUIP and EMPOWER grassroots urban leaders to transform lives and communities in Memphis. 

To achieve that goal, we provide comprehensive back office support so that non-profit leaders can focus on the needs of our community. As an intermediary nonprofit, we are able to create new initiatives, build leadership capacity, and work with people of faith and goodwill as we all strive to make positive impacts on the lives of Memphians.
