Support NJTL Youth Programs!



As you consider Year End Giving, join Tennis Memphis in giving the GIFT of TENNIS! 

Your one-time or recurring donation helps us provide free and low-cost NJTL tennis and education programs to under-served youth throughout Memphis and ensures that no child is turned away for an inability to pay. 

As we approach the end of 2017, here are a few IRS rules concerning your donations to Tennis Memphis:

• Checks that are mailed and postmarked in 2017 are considered 2017 contributions.

• Electronic contributions received the morning of January 1, 2018 will be reported as a 2018. 

• If you itemize your deductions, it is recommended that you do not file your federal income tax returns before you receive the statement of contributions from Tennis Memphis. Contribution statements will be mailed before the end of January
