 Alpha Educational Foundation



Foundation History



In our effort to grow and diversify our impact and influence in the West Palm Beach community, the men of Delta Delta Lambda Chapter, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., founded, in January 1997, the “Alpha Phi Alpha Educational Scholarship Foundation, Inc.”.  The organization was established as a registered non-profit organization under I.R.S. Code, Section 501c3.


The Chapter and Foundation, since its inception, has operated collaboratively, as an outstanding vehicle for service and advocacy.  Together we have created or brought to the area, several outstanding educational programs such as “An Evening with Black Artists”, “Men of Tomorrow” mentoring program, “Project Alpha” youth symposium and several “Town Hall Meetings “addressing current issues that impact the African American community.


The name of the Foundation was officially changed in 2014, to Alpha Educational Foundation – DDL, Inc.
