The Epsilon Lambda Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization whose efforts to obtain funding for the support of the Foundation’s activities is one of our priorities. This is achieved through its involvement in various activities and initiatives. These activities are to support both the national initiatives and programs, as well as support other local philanthropic interests in the St. Louis Metro Area.
Established in 2004, the Foundation serves the St. Louis region with the sustained purpose of providing culturally relevant youth mentoring and development, fatherhood and family initiatives along with community programs that support individuals and communities. The organization operates with a volunteer board of directors and no staff, keeping expenses lower than the industry average for nonprofit organizations. The Foundation generates revenue through donations and contributions, grants, rental income, and special events. These sources allow the Foundation to award funds consistent with its mission.
The mission of the Epsilon Lambda Charitable Foundation is to promote and uplift the education of youth and the advancement of community.
The Foundation works on issues to address education, poverty, safety, health, and the environment to help reduce the disparities of traditionally underserved people and communities.
We believe all children can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
The Foundation sponsors annual scholarships to high school seniors in the St. Louis, Missouri area who plan to attend a four year college or university.
We also lend support, both financial and personal time, through community outreach programs such as the Alpha Mentoring Program, the Annie Malone Children’s Home, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri.
The Foundation also supports programs for single fathers to educate them on parenting and relation issues, child support issues, and other issues pertinent to single parenting.
