About the Omega Psi Phi State Organization of Georgia
The Georgia State Organization was established in 1963 and incorporated in 1980. Since that time Georgia, which comprises 47 chapters and more than 1,000 active members, has established itself as the largest and most productive state organization within the 7th District. This district also comprises the states of Alabama, Florida and Mississippi. Through its myriad of programs, hundreds of youth from throughout the State of Georgia have received financial assistance, competed in the annual state wide talent hunt program, and gone on to attend colleges or universities throughout the state and this nation.
In 2001, the state organization established a nonprofit foundation to help Omega better serve the communities in the state by allowing individuals and corporations to make tax-deductible donations. This non-profit entity of the state organization acts as the scholarship and edu
cational funding arm of the state organization. The foundation positions the State Organization and Omega for the 21st century to make an even greater impact in our communities.
The Georgia State Organization is an organization that recognizes the positive achievement of others, is involved in the community through blood drives, food drives, clothes drives, environmental and community clean-up activities, and tutorial programs. We mentor disadvantaged young males, we nurture the elderly, we assist in providing housing for disadvantaged persons, and we raise funds for scholarships and educational foundations. The State Organization comprises dedicated Omega Men committed to helping the disadvantaged improve their quality of life by uplifting the less fortunate and providing hope wherever and whenever we can.
