Join the 1989 Society

We are fundraising for our emerging future leaders.

1989 is significant and symbolic for everyone who has ever benefitted from the creative and effective programs presented by The Memphis Challenge.

Join the 1989 Society to reimagine and fund our programs for maximum impact and effective delivery during and immediately after this pandemic.

The societal effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will be studied for years to come and we cannot now know the ripples that will result from cancellations and changes in life-long plans. The 1989 Society supported by alums, collegiates, parents, and friends of MC, will fund critical and comprehensive programming to assist in coping with the stress and anxiety our youth are experiencing. We must fill the gaps so that no one falls through.

Be a part of reimagining The Memphis Challenge, enhancing our programming and impact as we continue to inspire and develop future Memphis leaders during these trying times. Join the 1989 Society.


To meet the robust, growing, and evolving needs of our MC family, our goal is to fund:

  • A 40% increase in the Senior Tech Solutions Scholarship
  • Send Self-care packages for 250 Challengers and collegiates
  • Host 10 Virtual group coaching /webinars for alumni
  • Offer Mental Health and Stress Management Resources
