Purpose and Activities

The foundation supports health, lifelong learning, social justice and responsible use of resources with respect and compassion for all.


Established in 1994 in TN; converted from the sale of St. Francis Hospital - Since its formation in Mar. 1994, The Assisi Foundation of Memphis, Inc. has awarded over eighty million dollars to nonprofit organizations serving people located primarily in Memphis, Tennessee, and in the Mid South region surrounding Memphis. The foundation focuses on Healthcare and Human Services, Education and Literacy, Social Justice/Ethics, Cultural Enrichment and the Arts. The foundation continues to contribute valuable support to healthcare research such as cell therapy, well-baby care, HIV and AIDS, cancer research, and other initiatives. In addition, an important focus of the foundation is to promote science education in colleges and high schools. Many community not-for-profit institutions have received generous grants from the foundation to look for more answers to catastrophic illnesses and to bring basic healthcare to those who are economically challenged. The foundation has been instrumental in helping these community organizations find and apply for other sources of grant funds. It has also launched several initiatives ranging from literacy to collaborative efforts among organizations in order to address critical community needs
