Memphis community areas of focus

Whether it’s through corporate sponsorship or associates volunteering their time, talent or personal financial support, Raymond James is dedicated to making a difference in Memphis. Raymond James focuses on three areas of critical need in the communities we serve:

Health & human services

Many families in the Memphis area struggle daily to fulfill the most basic needs of food, shelter and medical care. That’s why supporting organizations that help meet these needs is a high priority for Raymond James.


Improving and supporting all levels of education – from pre-school programs to higher education – is a key focus. Supporting education is the pathway to developing productive citizens and community leaders and, ultimately, to building a better Memphis for generations to come.

Culture & arts

We believe it is important for people from all walks of life to enjoy the rich cultural and artistic heritage Memphis has to offer. Through investments toward facilities and events such as the Memphis Zoo, Dixon Gallery and Gardens, the Brooks Museum and others, Raymond James helps make these experiences more accessible to all.
