The Memphis Men’s Basketball team is teaming up with Coaching for Literacy and International Paper to use the power of sports to raise awareness about the problem of illiteracy and provide financial support to literacy programs nationwide. We are inviting fans to pledge a donation for each assist the Memphis Men’s basketball team records during a four game stretch. 100% of your donation will go to support literacy work in Memphis!
Pledge a donation for every assist the Memphis Men’s basketball team makes during the following four games (see schedule below). You can either pledge a donation per assist or make a one-time flat donation!
International Paper is sponsoring the Fight for Literacy Game with the Memphis Tigers and will match up to $4,000 in donations!
Our Impact Promise guarantees 100% of your donation will go to support our literacy partner in your community. Your donations will help hundreds of students by supporting the Memphis Teacher Residency (MTR). Learn more about Memphis Teacher Residency.
