Partner with The Memphis Music Foundation

The Memphis Music Foundation partners with numerous community organizations to promote and support Memphis Music. The Foundation is looking for dynamic events that meet our goal to cultivate a viable economic engine for Memphis by providing musicians and the music industry with resources and opportunities for growth and independence.

Partnership Levels


The Memphis Music Foundation provides financial support for Collaboration Partnerships. These events should have an educational component that will be of interest to members of the Memphis Music Resource Center. The Foundation is willing to work with the organization to plan and implement suitable educational programming. If you are interested in partnering with the Memphis Music Foundation please send us a brief description (no more than 10 sentences) of your event to request a sponsorship application.

Past Collaborations (Event/Educational component):

  • Memphis Pops Festival/Backstage Pass with Terry Manning
  • Just Blues Awards/Technology Panel
  • Keith Sykes Songwriters Celebration/Songwriters Workshop
  • The Recording Academy Indie Impact/Industry panels


The Memphis Music Foundation sends a weekly electronic newsletter to artists, industry and music lovers around the city. Submit your event for the weekly e-newsletter. All submissions should be sent two weeks before the story needs to be published.

Speakers Bureau

If you are looking for a guest speaker to discuss the future of Memphis music and its importance to Memphis’ economic outlook, please let us know.
