The Omega Phi Alpha Foundation empowers the members of Omega Phi Alpha National Service Sorority to create meaningful impact in the world through leadership, education, and volunteer service while developing lifetime friendships.

Established in 2019 as a 501(c)(3), the Foundation provides a means for members of Omega Phi Alpha, their families, and other community members to further the sorority’s mission through tax-deductible gifts.

Foundation History

Bringing the Omega Phi Alpha Foundation to reality was a lifelong dream of former National President and “treasurer/VP Finance for life,” the late Pamela McCullough McEwen (Epsilon).

Pam longed for a way for Omega Phi Alpha to accept tax-deductible donations, apply for grants, and receive employer-matching contributions, ensuring that the members of Omega Phi Alpha would have the resources necessary to make a meaningful impact on the world through service.

We joyfully celebrate that on April 8, 2019, Pam’s dream came true.
