About the Foundation

Honoring our Past - Securing Our Future

For more than 100 years, Alpha Kappa Lambda has played an important role in the development of outstanding young men.

Since our founding in 1907, our members have had a proud history of consistently high academic achievement, as well as leadership on campuses across the United States. We the alumni, volunteers, and staff of Alpha Kappa Lambda must strive to give our members the tools they need to be better men by providing leadership and educational programming that will help them throughout life.

Our commitment to this goal will enable AKL to improve the chapters we have, to re-establish the chapters of our past and to expand to new colleges and universities. There may be some differences in today's AKL compared to the one you knew, but the commitment to our core values endures.

We must look to our future and meet the challenges facing our undergraduate brothers. We must address new issues, such as the need for ethical leadership and the ongoing challenges of hazing and drug and alcohol abuse, which have become all too prevalent throughout our society over the last 30 years.

Alpha Kappa Lambda is consistently recognized as a leading fraternity on campuses across the nation. The Fraternity has partnered with the AKL Education Foundation to seek and provide funding so the Fraternity can offer the very best in innovative and insightful educational and leadership programs and scholarships to our current and future undergraduate members.

The programs and projects that compose the "Honoring Our Past - Securing Our Future" campaign are in response to the immediate needs of our members, and articulate a vision that builds upon Alpha Kappa Lambda's strengths as one of the nation's premier men's fraternities.

These same programs and projects will enable the Fraternity and the AKL Education Foundation to expand the size and scope of our leadership and educational programs, ensuring that very member receives the hands-on training in leadership, ethics and values so crucial in today's society.

With the Five Ideals as our guide, The "Honoring Our Past - Securing Our Future" campaign will provide permanent funding for vital programs benefiting all AKLs and concentrating on developing the life skills of "men committed to making a difference."
