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

LaKeisha Harrison is something good!

LaKeisha Harrison is an advocate of retention in Memphis and she loves to share the entrepreneurship history of Memphis (like the Holiday Inn story) to our younger generation. She co-founded the "Memphis Entrepreneurship Academy," a nonprofit organization that teaches kids how to be an entreprenuer. The math, reading, and writing the kids learn at school are enhanced in the MEA program. The kids get a real life experience to put what they learn in school into a viable, money-making business. Ultimately, MEA was created to help our kids gain pride in Memphis and encourage entrepreneurship in Memphis, which in turn would help with retention in them staying or returning to Memphis. Nominated by TJ Jefferson.
