Welcome to The Cultured Pearl Foundation, Incorporated (TCPF)

TCPF was established in 2009 by the members of Omicron Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and is the philanthropic arm of the chapter.  The mission of the Foundation is to be of “service to all mankind” in the Stamford and Norwalk communities.  

TCPF aims to accomplish this mission by implementing community health and wellness initiatives, supporting local food pantries to feed the hungry, providing scholarships to graduating high school seniors and a host of other outreach programs.  

TCPF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that welcomes contributions from community partners, companies and individuals.  We appreciate your support and commitment to our mission — we could not do the good work without you!                                              

Thank you for visiting The Cultured Pearl Foundation, Incorporated.
