Purpose and Mission of the Hortense B. Perry Foundation, Inc. 

The Hortense B. Perry Foundation is an educational foundation that provides scholarships and grants to college bound high school seniors that live in the Louisville Metro area. The Foundation also promotes and provides programs for youth and families in our community. In addition to funding and supporting the target programs of the Eta Omega chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., signature programs include, but are not limited to, the AKA Read-In, Little Miss AKA, Salute to Women and LEAF – a program of encouragement and self-improvement to middle school girls.

The Hortense B. Perry Foundation is a 501 C3 Charitable entity of the Eta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

The primary purpose of the HBP Foundation is the promotion of “high scholastic” achievement for high school girls and college women. In 2017, $60,000 was awarded to high school seniors and college students through direct and book scholarships. Funding also is provided to the Black Achievers Program for a four-year scholarship for a high school senior.

Eta Omega and the Foundation desire to develop a signature address in the California neighborhood serving the respective memberships and the broader community. The primary purpose of the facility is to provide a headquarters and community center for Eta Omega to carry out its mission “To be of Service to all Mankind.”

In November 2019, the Foundation purchased a 5 acre, 17,000 sf campus located at 3107 S. Crums Lane that is now under renovations to become its headquarters and site for community outreach and programming. The Foundation currently is in the midst of a $2.5 million capital campaign to complete renovations and retire all debt.
