Abstract: Due to its high poverty rates, Memphis is home to over one-thousand nonprofit organizations. Since the 1960s, the sector has grown into a 'nonprofit industrial complex.' The city seems to not only embrace its charitable tendencies; it relies on them. This piece explores the Memphis sector and how it causes and is created by socioracial inequities within the city. This piece not only provides a snapshot into what the nonprofit sector is like but how it can be improved through proper racial representation and creating partnerships instead of paternalistic infiltration.
