  • Education and Youth Development: Fostering youth from the cradle to their career with enhanced education opportunities
  • Community Development: Advancing the community through place-based development and social services
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Highlighting community initiatives that provide diverse and inclusive objectives and spaces
  • Arts and Culture: Supporting access to the Arts and a wide variety of cultural experiences

Greater Memphis Area Grants

Memphis is the second most povertous city in the U.S. per capita, and it is where AutoZone's Store Support Center is headquartered. Due to this, AutoZone is proud to offer support to nonprofit organizations in the Greater Memphis Area. AutoZone puts a strong focus on alleviating poverty in the Mid-South through our Greater Memphis Grant Application.

Applications for Autozone's upcoming fiscal year must be submitted between March 1 and July 1.

ArtsZone Grants

At AutoZone, we view a thriving arts community as a key component to creating and sustaining an economically strong, authentic and dynamic community. We support arts and culture initiatives through funding programs, civic leadership and employee engagement. Through a dedicated grant category named ArtsZone, AutoZone provides annual funding to ArtsMemphis and dozens of carefully vetted local arts and cultural organizations.

Arts organizations must complete the ArtsZone application to be considered for funding.

AutoZone's Matching Gift Program

AutoZone encourages AutoZoners to be active community members through volunteerism, the AutoZone Matching Gift program and payroll-deduction giving to individual charities. Our leadership walks the walk, with the majority of our CEO Team serving on nonprofit and industry boards, sharing their expertise, donating, fundraising and helping nonprofit organizations best serve the community.

The AutoZone Matching Gift program is available to all full-time and part-time AutoZoners. It allows AutoZoners to donate up to $500 to qualified charities of their choice and have those donations matched dollar-for-dollar by AutoZone.
