Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Richmond Alumnae Delta House Foundation and Richmond Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta have and will continue to sponsor the Infinite Scholars Program, the only program of its kind in the Commonwealth of Virginia, which is available to junior and senior high school students statewide. This annual program grows exponentially each year; in 2014, 518 students registered, 258 parents attended, 531 on-site admissions were granted and more than $7.4 million scholarships awarded on-site. Since 2009, over $33,000,000 has been awarded in scholarships and more than 2200 onsite college admissions granted. In addition to scholarships and admissions, financial aid workshops are provided for parents. The Foundation / Chapter sponsored its 25th Annual Oratorical Contest, which is open to all students, Kindergarten through 12th grade. This program along with the Delta Authors' Pavilion has become a signature program. The third annual Delta Authors' Pavilion brought to the community a FREE to the public opportunity to speak with local authors as well as out of state authors about their writings for young and old. Both programs will be housed in the community center. RADHF & RAC have high expectations regarding scholarship awards and on-site admissions for the 7th Infinite Scholars Program, which will be held October 3, 2015. Also, high expectations for the 2016 High Achievers Program, which annually recognizes 50+ high school students for their accomplishments. These are usually students who may not be at the top of the class but have displayed vast improvement. The Delta Authors' Pavilion has garnered attention on the National level and RAC/ RADHF have been tagged to sponsor one of two Delta Authors on Tour in the South Atlantic Region. This honor has the potential to bring in and expose to the city of Richmond authors and members from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Bermuda.

Program 1

Delta Community Center Program Overview

We are in the planning stages of developing programs that will be offered at the new Community Center. The initial focus of the programs will be in two areas: education and health & wellness. We are renovating the building to be a state-of-the-art facility that will have flexible space so a variety of groups may use the space in an infinite number of ways.Existing Foundation/Chapter youth programs and offerings which currently occur on weekends and evenings will transition to this facility.

Program 2

Youth Programs - Delta Academy, Delta G.E.M.S, E.M.B.O.D.I., F.A.S.T., Jabberwock

These national and local youth programs are currently conducted at other facilities, but will be moved to the community center upon its completion and approval for occupancy. Other youth programs, i.e., Infinite Scholars Program, High Achievers Program, may not be conducted in the facility because the number of participants may exceed the building's maximum occupancy.

Funding Needs

RADHF along with Richmond Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta has programs which we actively bring to the Richmond community throughout the year. As a nonprofit organization, a primary need is the generation of financing for our programs as well as a sizable amount ($2 million) needed to renovate the historic building gifted to the chapter. We are in a capital campaign to renovate the former Good Shepherd Baptist Church in the East End into a Community Center. The building, constructed in 1888, is one of the earliest churches constructed in Church Hill by African Americans for African Americans. In 2001, the building was designated an historic site by Virginia Department of Historic Resources. As such, renovations must be stringently considered and monitored to maintain the building's historic site designation. The primary needs of our organization are funding and alliances with corporations and businesses for the renovation and revitalization of the historic site. Monies initially accumulated for the massive renovation have dwindled because of structural stabilization and other work needed to keep the historic building insured and maintained until major renovations can occur. The building has been structurally stabilized through ongoing donations by the membership.
