Thank you to Michelle and Bill Dunavant for hosting the LDI 25th Anniversary party at Foxfield on October 22, 2022. It was a beautiful afternoon and everyone who attended enjoyed reconnecting with former classmates and meeting graduates from other class. We are also grateful for our 25th Anniversary host committee and sponsors for their investment and support of our work.
As you may know, we have launched a Fellows sustainability campaign to ensure that our city’s mid-career leaders have the opportunity to expand their leadership skills and enhance their self-awareness for the next 25 years. Our fundraising goal for this campaign is $250,000. We raised $18,000 toward our goal on Saturday. Susan Stephenson also announced that she and Independent Bank will contribute a matching gift of $35,000 for donations received by November 4th. We hope you will help us meet our goal with a personal donation. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to New Memphis online today and leave your mark on the next 25 years of leadership development. If you prefer to mail a check, please use our new address: 516 Tennessee St. #301, Memphis, TN 38103. Should you have any questions or want to inquire about other ways to contribute to New Memphis, please contact LauraBeth@newmemphis.org or 731-694-6118. We are grateful for your gift in any amount.
