Donor Mike Conley puts his money where his mouth is.

We are thrilled to see that Memphis Grizzlies point guard (and hometown favorite) Mike Conley was recently named one of 2018 “Top 40 Under 40” by Memphis Business Journal.

In Mike’s Top 40 Under 40 feature in the latest MBJ issue, he cites that the one thing he would change about Memphis is “lowering the employment rates throughout the city.” We can speak first-hand to his commitment to make this change a reality. Mike has been a supporter of Memphis Suit Project for two years; in 2017 by the sponsorship of Mayor Jim Strickland’s Manhood University participants, and in 2018 by sponsoring both the Memphis Athletic Ministries cycle and the CodeSchool cycle, which will culminate at their Suiting Event this Wednesday at 10 am.

Without the support of Memphians like Mike Conley, who not only see the challenges unemployment creates, but also act to support solutions to those challenges, our City will continue to face an unemployment crisis. Memphis Suit Project is a solution that is making a significant impact on job-seekers securing and maintaining employment.

Mike Conley is an example to the students we serve. He uses his platform and resources to do more than lip service….he makes a difference. And we are all better for it.

Continued thanks to Mike and Tim Jordan, who both selflessly give for the betterment of others.
