Education

The Read to Achieve Program presented by International Paper in association with KPMG is our signature, most extensive educational outreach initiative. It is designed to encourage elementary school students to develop a lifelong love for reading and to promote the value of reading and literacy. Players, coaches and staff members host reading assemblies and other in-school challenges. The program culminates each year with the Read to Achieve Finale Celebration held at the FedEx Forum. More than 15,500 students across Shelby County Schools participate in the Read to Achieve program every year.

Health and Fitness

Committed to creating a healthier Mid-South, the Grizzlies work to increase access to health and fitness options, educating individuals about healthy life choices and inspiring individuals to make healthy decisions. In 2013, the Memphis Grizzlies became the first and only sports team to win the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.


Youth Development

The Tickets for Kids Program gives players and ownership the opportunity to purchase group tickets to invite youth to attend Grizzlies home games. More than 22,000 tickets were donated to youth across the Mid-South this past season. Tickets are also given to local schools to help incentivize attendance, academic achievement, behavior, and community service.
