Our Programs

Each year, the Hyde Family Foundations actively support worthy nonprofit partners achieving results in these three key areas:

Transforming Education
Our philosophy on education is simple: All children deserve a high-quality education that prepares them for success. Our efforts are focused on closing the achievement gap by:

  • Supporting transformative schools
  • Developing and rewarding great teachers and school leaders, and
  • Sponsoring effective public policy

Positioning Authentic Assets
Memphis is rich with cultural, historical, physical and human assets that are unique to our city. We work with innovative community partners to strengthen and showcase Memphis’ authentic assets in the areas of:

  • Arts and Culture
  • Civic Growth and Leadership

Livable Communities
Memphis can become a city full of livable communities that are economically vital, offer great quality of life, and attract and retain citizens. To achieve this vision, we support activities that:

  • Create a strong urban core where people live, work, and play
  • Connect people via a network of green assets, streetscapes, and transit opportunities
  • Build thriving neighborhoods through inside out leadership and engagement
