A Message from the Executive Director
The Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation, Inc. (EAF) was formed in 1980, based on an already existing tradition within Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. of giving and sharing with communities throughout the world. "The Mission of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation is to promote lifelong learning. This is accomplished by securing charitable contributions, gifts and endowed funds to award scholarships, fellowships and grants."
EAF was started with a vision of the future and $10,000. We have grown into a multi-million dollar Foundation, which has worked to enrich the lives of thousands of individuals and communities. We have awarded more than $3.5 million dollars in scholarships and community assistance awards. The work of EAF continues to have an impact on the society that we live in and plays an important role in shaping the lives of all those that it touches.
As we move forward, let us remember that although we have made significant strides in touching the lives of so many, our work is not yet over. The future is filled with many challenges for EAF and the past, present and future recipients of our scholarships, fellowships and community assistance awards. Let us continue to take our charge very seriously, as we work even harder to insure that EAF continues to be the premier organization that it has become.
EAF encourages the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and our corporate and private partners to continue their support. This support is needed to ensure that we can continue to support our scholars and hard working community organizations.
