The Jay Uiberall Foundation honors the legacy of Memphis restaurateur Jay Uiberall by supporting causes near and dear to Jay’s heart. Jay was a leader in the Beale Street business community and co-owner of Automatic Slim’s, Alfred’s On Beale, Dyer’s, Ubee’s, and Catering for U.

As a grant–making organization, JUF seeks to partner with nonprofits in the Greater Memphis area that offer new and innovative programs that fulfill our vision but may lack financial resources. Typically, these programs demonstrate high potential to make a positive impact on the lives of our youth and our underserved, through mentoring scholarships, intervention, skill–building and more. Please consider becoming a member of our Sustainability Club and make your generosity go even further.

JUF raises money to support a number of nonprofit organizations in Memphis that are committed to improving the lives of those less fortunate in our community — particularly young people. "JUF looks for holes in society where a program could help kids and young people improve their lives and pave a path for a brighter future,” says Jay’s father, Michael. “We look for programs that don't have access to funds but would have a true impact in the Memphis community if they did."
