Community Outreach

The Memphis Grizzlies invest in communities throughout the Mid-South by providing quality services, programs, events, and in-kind donations that support the needs of area hospitals, schools, and nonprofit organizations.

Grizzlies seasonal programs include events such as the Tip-Off Luncheon, Grizz Gala, canned food and toy drives, support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s Thanks and Giving and Hoops for St. Jude campaigns, Black History Month on-court recognitions, and Grizzlies Go Green week. In addition, during the holiday season, Grizzlies players, coaches, and staff all take time to visit local children’s hospitals, serve holiday meals, and purchase gifts for children that would go without otherwise.

Each year, the Grizzlies assist hundreds of organizations by supporting their fundraising events through our Donations In-Kind Program, as well as providing ticket donations through our Tickets for Kids Program. In addition, the Grizzlies online auction series provides fans an opportunity to bid on autographed memorabilia and fan experiences, with all of the profits supporting Memphis Grizzlies House at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
