For our 20th Year AKAversary, Spring 1998 of Alpha Chapter, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, launched a service initiative designed to make an impact in our community. Known as the 47 Emeralds of Ninety Virtuous Years (E.N.V.Y.), we created the 47 Queenly Acts of Kindness & Service and completed 40 acts of kindness and 7 acts of service between May and October 2018, culminating at Howard University’s Homecoming.
For our 47th act, we are announcing the establishment of a need-based scholarship fund at Howard University for incoming or current undergraduate women.
Our goal is to raise at least $47,000 by our 25th Anniversary, in five years. With the help of our friends, family and network, however, we hope to exceed this amount.
Please consider joining us in service to all mankind by donating to our fund via Howard University. Please identify our fund under “other fund description” as “AKA 47 E.N.V.Y. Scholarship Fund.” IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU INCLUDE OUR FULL NAME. All donations to Howard University are tax deductible as permitted by law.
Not ready to give? Email us a non-binding pledge to support, and we will follow-up.
