With “greater tasks to begin,” Upsilon Alpha Omega Chapter extended its charitable arm in 2006 and established Gwinnett Pearls of Service Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Gwinnett County, Georgia, we are committed to being open and accountable.
The Gwinnett Pearls of Service Foundation, like Upsilon Alpha Omega Chapter, works to grow better communities and focus on education, health, youth development and mentoring. The Foundation not only promotes these goals, but also provides support through outreach efforts, scholarship initiatives, and educational forums. Together, our proactive strategies and projects to improve the economic and social growth of families and enhance the academic success and personal vision of students will continue to impact Gwinnett County and beyond.
Through our commitment to excellence, Upsilon Alpha Omega Chapter and The Gwinnett Pearls of Service Foundation will continue to set the standard and raise the bar. Through our passion for progressive change, we will continue to lead the way. And today and always, our sisterhood will continue to leave its collective imprint on the world, as only Alpha Kappa Alpha women can do.
“Our programs are our highest priority,” said Kathy H. Jackson, President, Upsilon Alpha Omega Chapter. “We have been called to serve the greater good of our community. The establishment of the Gwinnett Pearls of Service Foundation will afford us the opportunity to serve in a manner that is economically viable and AKA-nomics-focused.”
