Help us celebrate the new OPA Foundation this Founders Day!

The Omega Phi Alpha Foundation is here!

The path to establishing a 501(c)3 Foundation has been an interesting one, complete with twists, turns, and the work of many amazing leaders across an equal number of years. Today, the Foundation Board of Directors has the distinct honor of asking our whole membership to join us in celebrating the official launch of the Omega Phi Alpha Foundation!

We want to begin with sincere thanks to all who contributed to making the Foundation a reality. There are too many to mention here by name, but you each played a truly important role and we are so grateful for all of you!

We’re already hard at work for our members!

The OPA Foundation Board of Directors is actively working to lay the groundwork for providing support to our members and chapters. earning from the nonprofit community, we’re setting up a sustainable fundraising plan and associated processes to help fund the amazing service and leadership opportunities happening across our membership every day. While this work is mostly happening behind the scenes, we have a few early and exciting successes!

The OPA Foundation has been able to donate design tools (Canva Pro and Adobe Creative Suite) to the sorority. These will help consolidate our design efforts and ensure our team can easily collaborate with each other. Even more exciting, we will be able to share G-Suite (Gmail, Google Drive, and other Google apps) with the sorority at no cost, allowing the sorority to redistribute budget dollars to other initiatives!
