WHO ARE WE?
The G.W.C Brown Legacy Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization whose primary purpose is to promote education in the Greater Hampton Roads region. With our scholarship program, the Foundation’s commitment continues to aid those within the Greater Hampton Roads region to materially transform young men’s DREAMS into REALITY. We do this with the impactful authenticity that uniquely comes when sponsorship is gained from those role models, mentors, and professionals of the various career fields of with similar background. The G.W.C Brown Legacy Education Fund's targeted vehicles – in the form of our chapter’s various customized scholarship awards – are granted each year to the proven (and screened) young area scholars of challenged means who are further selected based upon our informed judgment as to the high likelihood fulfilling much needed future civic leadership roles as well.
In addition, we are conducting a mentoring and professional development program, called Alpha Leaders of Tomorrow (ALOT), as part of Alpha Phi Alpha’s National Program “Go to High School, Go to College”. Since 1932, this grass-roots program has provided members of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity the opportunity to serve the community by “putting our young men on the right track and keeping them there.” The program is a combination of classroom instruction from a vetted national curriculum and mentored activities. There are three local high schools in Norfolk and Virginia Beach that have involved in the program with many more requesting participation. After only two years of implementing the program in South Hampton Roads, the program has received the support from the Congressman Rigell, the Virginia Beach and Norfolk School Boards, The Virginia Beach mayors office, the Norfolk City Council, the Virginia Beach and Norfolk Sheriff’s department and the Commonwealth Attorney, just to name a few.
