DC Pearls III Foundation, the fundraising arm of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, Rho Mu Omega Chapter, is dedicated to meeting the educational, health, cultural, technological, social and economic needs of communities in the Washington metropolitan area.

We have established an educational scholarship fund for Washington, D.C. high school graduates to continue their education at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). A minimum of four (4) scholarships are awarded annually to students who have been accepted and plan to attend an HBCU. Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate academic excellence or potential, leadership skills, and community service. In 2017, we awarded $13,000 in scholarships and we also hosted our annual HBCU College Tour where 21 on-the-spot acceptances and over $60,000 of scholarships were offered.

We also provide a variety of community service programs for which we earned first place recognition in the overall Launching New Dimensions of Service program for our region. Highlights of 2017 community service programs included partnering with Bright Beginnings to provide food and seasonable wraps to over 200 local families, donating over 350 backpacks to Barnard Elementary, DC Prep and Hurricanes Harvey and Maria survivors, revitalizing, restoring and refreshing the playground at Orr Elementary with over 50 blooms and touching over 400 lives through health education and awareness.
