About the Foundation

The Foundation was Established in 1981 as a non – profit , tax exempt, publicly supported organization established to support community based programs. These programs include our Fraternity’s Guide Right Youth Mentorship Program, grades 6 through 12 , scholarships  for undergraduate members, IKare – disaster relief program, ULI – undergraduate leadership institute, health awareness programs, and community financial literacy programs for young people, to name a few.

We are excited about doing  more for the communities where we live and work.  We are fully engaged in this transformation to fine solutions to the challenges that the current and next generation face. We look forward to working with Corporations , Foundations, and individuals  who share our common goal to better the lives of our young people particularly through education, training , and community redevelopment.

We sincerely hope that you will explore our mission and direction and become a partner with us!

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation Community!


The mission of the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation is to identify and invest in opportunities that engage today’s generation of young people in leading the social, economic and educational transformation of under served and under represented communities throughout the nation and global community.


The Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation is built upon the fundamental premise that a world which celebrates individual achievement and strong communities of color can only be realized when human kind makes an unwavering commitment to the promotion of equality and ending poverty for all.


The focus of our strategic plan is to build a culture of Philanthropy within Kappa Alpha Psi. We will implement the most effective and innovative member-donor relations program that will serve as the catalyst in building the Kappa Foundation’s endowment and transform the Foundation into a self-sustained global philanthropic entity. Through its assessment the Foundation has several areas of need if it is to build its endowment to increase its impact through giving. Therefore it has established the five strategic objectives to address these areas of need as part of its strategic plan.
