Ivy Enrichment Fund, Inc.
The Charitable Arm of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®
Pi Iota Omega Chapter
MISSION: The Ivy Enrichment Fund, Incorporated, a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit corporation, was established by Pi Iota Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® to raise funds to finance and support the chapter’s community service programs, activities, and initiatives.
Pi Iota Omega Chapter has been providing stellar service to all mankind and serving the White Plains/ Greenburgh communities since June 14, 1986. Our services are determined by each corporate administration.
Our 2022-2026 program initiatives include:
Empower Our Families
Build Our Economic Wealth
Enhance Our Environment
Advocate for Social Justice
Uplift Our Local Community
These initiatives are designed to improve and empower the communities we serve, and build collaborative relationships with businesses that support us in executing our vision. To fulfill our mission, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support.
Through the years, we have donated over $376,000 in scholarships and book awards to high school students' educational advancement. As an organization dedicated to creating sustainable funding streams, in order to provide scholarships and assist communities, our primary goal is to create and cultivate partnerships that will help us enrich lives through the awarding of scholarships and community awards. Fundraising efforts such as our Patron Campaign, also underwrite the stellar community service the chapter members provide annually. In addition, events such as Pocketbook Bingo, as well as our signature Holiday Extravaganza, which has attracted 300+ guests, allow us to raise funds for these scholarships and book awards.
A few highlights of the chapter’s initiatives include our activities to Uplift Our Local Community through our "Love Your Block" grant, which allowed us to Enhance Our Environment. As a grant recipient we executed several tree plantings, installed a park bench with a mini art installation of tiles created by chapter members, and participated in neighborhood and park clean ups.
Additionally, due to an increase in food insecurity, we launched out Childhood Hunger Initiative Power Pack (CHIPP) program which provides elementary aged schoolchildren in our local community with weekend and holiday meals packed by our chapter members weekly.
We depend on donations from community-minded individuals, and advocates of social upliftment, to sustain our efforts. We humbly, request your donation to support the continuation of our service to all mankind.
