Catalyze Episode 5: Barbara Hyde ’83 on a life of philanthropy
This week we sat down with Barbara Hyde, Morehead-Cain Class of 1983. Barbara has spent much of her life finding ways to support causes she cares about. She’s the chair and CEO of the Hyde Family Foundation—a nonprofit credited with helping transform the city of Memphis.
Barbara also cares a great deal about Morehead-Cain and Carolina. She has been Co-Chair of the 2015 and 2018 Alumni Forums, helped found Morehead-Cain’s first fundraising efforts, and is on the board of the Morehead-Cain Scholarship Fund. She has also served on the University’s Board of Trustees and helped launch its massive, four-billion-dollar fundraising campaign last fall.
In our conversation, we discussed what it’s like to have kids at UNC—including a daughter with the Morehead-Cain Scholarship!—the unique strengths and challenges of Memphis, and what it’s like living a life of philanthropy.
