Change the way we change Memphis.

The extraordinary toll poverty takes on our neighbors and our city is virtually impossible to measure. But the answers aren’t.  

Slingshot is forging a data-driven roadmap, attracting and directing more resources toward solutions with the greatest impact - the net change that a given intervention or program creates in a person's life.

Your investment in Slingshot goes 100% to the work, not our expenses. 

Our Measurement Funders, alongside our Board of Directors, are committed to covering all operating costs. This unique framework guarantees that every cent of every dollar invested into Slingshot's IMPACT Fund will directly impact our city's highest-performing poverty-fighting programs.

We shouldn't - and don't - hold back.

Slingshot will strive to invest each dollar in the most expeditious and strategic way possible. Just as earlier investments in equities grow faster due to compounding interest, earlier investments in poverty reduction can reduce more suffering over time. We don’t wait.

Blurring boundaries to become a city that invests in impact.

We are called to love our neighbors as ourselves. To create more justice, we are called to relinquish more. And we are called to do so faster and with more impact. This demands more urgency and transparency. 


Be a part of the change. Be a slingshot.

When you join Slingshot's growing movement, your investment is amplified, making the biggest difference possible.
