1. GiVE 365 Awards $62,600 in Grants -

A community’s needs are infinite, yet the resources available to provide help are finite.

So it only made sense for GiVE 365, The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis’ dollar-a-day philanthropy program, to have a theme geared toward cooperation.

2. ‘Two Ears, One Heart’ -

The phone rings and rings at the Memphis Crisis Center – 19,000 times in 2013, or 2.2 times every hour, 52 times a day, 365 days a year.

Of the 19,000 calls logged last year, 1,301 – or 3.6 per day – were from people talking about killing themselves.

3. Nonprofits to Pitch Ideas for GiVE 365 Grants -

Three minutes to make their best pitch. That’s what the finalists will have Monday night, Aug. 18, when they compete for Community Foundation of Greater Memphis GiVE 365 grants.

“It’s by far the most important event we have,” said Ashley Harper, director of grants and initiatives at the foundation. “And it’s high energy because we’re strict about those three minutes.”

4. We’re All Invited -

MEMPHIS, SERVED IN THE SHELL. Following up last week’s column, this from a reader:

“We have no civic pride, half the population is intent on killing as many as they can and the other part lives behind walls or gates. There was a time in the fifties when you could leave your front door unlocked and keys in the car.”

11. All Signs Point to Breakthrough for ‘Josh’ -

Josh.

Say only that, and everyone in Memphis knows you’re talking about the University of Memphis basketball coach.

A first name. Like Michael, LeBron or Kobe. OK, not exactly like that, but sort of like that because it captures who he is.

THE POWER OF VISION. Many families have a story about opportunities missed, fortunes lost. My great uncle was in the retail coal and ice business in Memphis. Around 1907, our story goes, a woman owed him about $7,500 – a piece of change then. She couldn’t repay him according to the terms set, so she offered something she owned instead to cover the debt. He turned her down but gave her new terms and she eventually paid off the loan. When asked to justify his decision (and he was asked a lot), he infamously replied, “What she had was a passing fancy, a temporary infatuation no one really needs. People will always need coal and ice.”
