The Kappa Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization designed to promote education and community service in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Inkster and surrounding communities.
The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inskter (AAYI) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was established December 6, 1958, originally as the Inkster Alumni Chapter. On October 9, 1970, the Inkster Alumni Chapter was rechartered as the AAYI Alumni Chapter. In the Fraternity, the community, and throughout cities and states, Kappa Alpha Psi members are known for their dedication to achievement and service.
The non-profit arm of the AAYI Chapter, The Kappa Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2012. It is designed to promote education and community service. The Kappa Foundation and AAYI Alumni Chapter partner to sponsor events and activities that serve youth and the greater community. For example, for 25 years, the AAYI Alumni Chapter has hosted a College Fair for high school and middle school students. In doing so, the AAYI Chapter exposes young people to the best colleges and universities this country offers. Consistent with our commitment to the community, over eight years ago, the AAYI Chapter had the vision to recognize and honor women who have achieved high levels of success in their chosen career field and dedicated themselves to their communities. The Foundation’s annual signature event, “Women of Achievement,” serves as the fundraiser to enable the Foundation to award scholarships to deserving high school and college students.
