Business & Economic Development Foundation
The purpose of the Alpha Phi Alpha Business & Economic Development Foundation is to “promote and encourage economic development in minority and disadvantaged communities by expanding the opportunities for the residents of those communities to enter into, own, manage, operate and/or be employed in business enterprises which are based upon the substantial participation of the low income community.” Additionally, the Foundation’s aim is to promote a dynamic business environment in underserved communities through franchise opportunities, family financial planning and an aggressive Wealth Building Initiative.

Alpha Phi Alpha Charitable Foundation
The mission of the Foundation is to promote scholarship and academic achievement and provide resources, services and advocacy to the global community. Recent efforts of the Foundation have been focused on urban education and growing resources and partnerships to aggressively attack the lack of innovation, achievement, preparation often found in these environments. Some current programmatic efforts include technology based efforts to maximize the human capital found in our inner city school systems and prepare them for future academic and corporate success. A second prong of this urban initiative is Edward W. Brooke Scholarship Program for collegiate youth who wish to enter the academic field and work in disadvantaged urban school districts. The foundation is also looking into other programs that may provide a broader impact at the early education phase for children.
The Foundation was commissioned in 2008 by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. to serve as the funding engine for the philanthropic programs and initiatives of the organization. Toward that effort the foundation is focused on endowment creation, corporate and individual charitable fundraising, programming development to impact local, national, and global communities.
