About ioby Memphis

We love Memphis. We love the grizzlies and our rock ‘n’ roll, but most of all we love Memphians. Since we began our on-the-ground work in Memphis, ioby has supported over 250 resident leaders as they plan, crowdfund, and build positive change in neighborhoods across the city. With a median donation of $35, ioby leaders have raised over $740,000 in small donations to make Memphis neighborhoods greener, safer, more livable, and more full of opportunity for all residents.

 

 

Meet Chris Jones, Memphis Action Strategist!

As a Memphis Action Strategist, Chris is working to help even more leaders like you in Memphis make positive change across the city. When you share your idea for positive change in your Memphis neighborhood, Chris will walk alongside you from building your crowdfunding campaign page, to making your first donation asks, to building your project.

A Memphis resident of over 20 years, Chris lives in Harbor Town. He’s thrilled to build on his years of experience as an employment attorney and leader in grassroots initiatives around education, art, and progressive politics.

Get to know more about Chris’ love for Memphis, including his passion for guitar, Memphis food, and the Grizzlies (of course!).
