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

Kayden Bowie inspires through music


From the moment Kayden decided he wanted to start performing he wanted to use that to motivate kids to do good. A straight "A" student at Macon Road Baptist, Kayden has an anti-bullying single titled "What If" that he has performed for many hundreds of elementary/middle school students throughout the Mid-South this last school year. He traveled with the Memphis Music Commission at their request to the state capitol in Nashville to perform his single to the delegates stressing the importance of music programs in schools and socially. Kayden currently has four classroom instructional songs being use throughout the Mid-South and continues to give back. This August 9th he is the special guest performer at a St. Jude Children's Research Hospital benefit concert. I'm nominating Kayden for his continued fight to combat bullying and desire to motivate those his own age to do well in school. His full press kit can be found at: Nominated by Kevin Bowie.
