Message from our President

 

Greetings,


It gives me great pleasure to serve as the sixth President of the Southern Crescent Pearls Foundation, Incorporated (SCPF). SCPF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, established in October 2008, by members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Psi Alpha Omega Chapter. The SCPF serves as the fundraising entity of Psi Alpha Omega Chapter and provides resources to individuals and other community organizations in both the Henry and Clayton counties.

I am delighted to announce our 2020-2021 theme, “Sisters Taking Action Reforming Society” (STARS). Our mission is to strengthen the social, economic and educational well-being of the southern crescent community. We will continue partnering with local community organizations to fulfill our mission and to make a positive impact on the communities of Henry and Clayton counties. In the past four years, in partnership with Psi Alpha Omega, SCPF has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships and grants to students and community organizations in the Henry and Clayton counties. Additionally, we have participated in about 130 community service activities with over 10,000 Psi Alpha Omega volunteer hours.


We encourage you to explore our website, support our community programs, attend and support our fundraisers. The majority of funds to support the SCPF come from membership dues and assessments, by securing charitable contributions, through fundraising activities and most importantly from generous contributions from donors like you.


Your donations make it possible for the Southern Crescent Pearls Foundation, Inc. to support individuals who desire an opportunity to further their education. Your donation also supports community-based organizations and service projects, which target the same populations in which we serve, including volunteer programs related to scholarship and academic pursuits. Making a difference would not be possible without the commitment and volunteer efforts of the Foundation’s donors and contributors. Your gift could make the difference in the lives of young people for years to come.


Sincerely,

Kimberly Newsome

President Southern Crescent Pearls Foundation, Incorporated
