SLINGSHOT MEMPHIS

In 2018 JIFF became an Affiliate Partner with Slingshot Memphis. After our first year of helping to move the needle to reduce poverty in Memphis, JIFF became an Investee Partner in 2019.  As an Investee Partner we participate in rigorous annual evaluations that have strengthened us overall, especially in our implementation of evidence-based practices and aligning with best practices with our measurement infrastructure.
