MIFA’s Something Good in Memphis campaign is designed to celebrate those who make Memphis better, whether it’s the stranger who helps change your flat tire in the rain or a human services pioneer who changes the lives of a hundred poor Memphians. Sometimes people tend to focus on the bad and forget the good, but we see reminders of the good in Memphis every day!


Recognizing someone is quick and easy – just send us an email! Acknowledge friends, neighbors,and colleagues whose daily efforts or remarkable deeds embody the spirit of positive action in our community. Thank you for being a part of the good in Memphis!


The Something Good in Memphis project was created by MIFA in 2009 to advance our vision of uniting the community through service. Our mission is supporting the independence of vulnerable seniors and families in crisis through high-impact programs. Our values are to welcome and respect all people, act with integrity, value individual initiative and ability, serve individuals and the community as an act of faith, and balance humanitarian goals with sound business practices. Learn more about MIFA here

Greater service, greater progress for Sigma Gamma Rho

It would be hard to pinpoint one individual member of this chapter for their ongoing volunteer efforts. Sigma Gamma Rho has a proud legacy of providing positive and proactive community leadership and support when and wherever needed as indicated by the sorority's international slogan, "Greater Service, Greater Progress." When the Memphis Food Bank shelves grew low this chapter answered the call by partnering with Ampro to provide 20,000 meals. Their current efforts include a doll & action figure drive for the children of St. Jude, a scholarship pageant for young ladies 9th- 12th grade, the Mwanamugimu Essay contest''s which provides an opportunity for students to increase their knowledge of the historical and contemporary development of Africa and their annual Sigma Youth Symposium which focuses on some of the prevalent concerns that negatively impact our youth. Service is synonymous with Sigma because for these women giving back is an ongoing process because the greater the service, the greater we progress! Nominated by Tamika Smith.
