Lifting As We Climb
The Omega Uplift Foundation is a philanthropic organization associated with the Iota Pi Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
About the Foundation
We are dedicated to uplifting young and adult African American men to become scholars, good citizens, and fathers. Through contributing to their educational growth, health awareness, and more, we elevate these individuals so they may do the same to their community.
Each year the Omega Uplift Foundation host events to raise money to support their efforts in uplifting the youth.
Purple Carpet Scholarship Ball
The Purple Carpet Scholarship Ball is a celebration to recognize students in the Grand Rapids area who have demonstrated a high level of academic success. During this event, we award the Randall Burt Scholarship to aid them in their pursuits of higher education. The event also serves to recognize the individuals in our community who have made impactful contributions.
Charles R. Drew Golf Outing
The Charles R. Drew Golf Outing is hosted each year to support scholarships given by the Omega Uplift Foundation. Join us for a day of excellent golfing, relaxation, and socialization to benefit the education of African American men and support physical and mental health wellness of youth within Greater Grand Rapids.
