What is Bridge Builders GROW?

Bridge Builders GROW is our loyal circle of monthly sustainers. 

Becoming a monthly donor is quick, easy, and incredibly rewarding. For the price of your Nextflix subscription or a few coffees, you can change the lives of thousands of Memphis-area youth. 

How does Bridge Builders GROW make a difference?

The true cost of one Bridge Builder’s year-long experience in the COLLABORATE program is $1,000, and no family is ever turned away due to financial need.

This would not be possible without the support of our monthly sustainers because the majority of program fees are paid through gifts from supporters like you. Automatic monthly donations help us set smart, sustainable goals for the future, and they allow you to make a significant long-term impact because your contributions become part of a larger collective footprint.

Thanks to our generous supporters, Bridge Builders from all income levels have access to camps, electives and a variety of meaningful experiences that bring these young leaders closer to their community and to one another. 

How much does it cost to join Bridge Builders GROW?

Our average monthly gift is $25, but no amount is too small to make a big difference. Every dollar helps us take another step forward in our mission to unite and inspire diverse young people to become confident, courageous leaders committed to community transformation.

When you join Bridge Builders GROW, you become part of the movement to uplift youth leadership throughout the Greater Memphis Region, and you can do it in less than five minutes using our convenient giving form. Will you become a sustaining member today?
