Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is an organization of over 290,000 members world-wide. Our Chapter locally continues to develop programs and initiatives that parallel the objectives of our Founders. Our purpose is “to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve their social stature, to maintain a progressive interest in college life, and to be of service to all mankind.”
Through fundraising events, such as our Annual Ivy Ball, Xi Delta Omega Chapter supports the Harford County community through donations and partnerships with organizations such as Harford Habitat for Humanity, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Aberdeen and Edgewood, Windsor Valley Community Center, Black Youth in Action Debutante Ball, Hosanna School Museum, Urban Impact, Inc., Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Baltimore, American Cancer Society, and the American Red Cross.
We have also sponsored students to attend The Historic Black College and University Tour. In addition, we have supported families in need throughout Harford County by way of donations and gifts. Xi Delta Omega sponsors programs to support health awareness and prevention, financial literacy and educational opportunities for college bound students. Over the last 10 years, proceeds from fundraiser events have provided scholarships totaling over $100,000 to Harford County students.

The Educational Advancement Foundation was founded in 1980 by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®, an organization with a rich and distinguished history of service that spans nearly a century.
Alpha Kappa Alpha was the first Greek letter organization of its kind. The organization pioneered mobile health clinics in America, has been a leader in the fight against illiteracy, and has the distinction of being one of only a handful of women's organizations to operate a federally funded Job Corps. But, ever since Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® awarded its first scholarship in 1914 ($10 to a liberal arts student at Howard University), one program of service has endured—scholarships.
