The DC-Metro Chapter
was founded in 1955 and was incorporated on December 10, 1998 and became a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization Registered in the District of Columbia on June 19, 2013.
It is our objective to support the financial growth of Morehouse College,
assist in the recruitment of qualified students to Morehouse, raise scholarship
funds for current Morehouse students while serving the African American
community in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Northern Virginia area.
The DC Chapter is a field
organization of the Morehouse College National Alumni Association and was
incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia as a nonprofit
corporation on December 10, 1998. The Chapter is organized exclusively to
promote the welfare of Morehouse College, Atlanta, Georgia, and the Alumni
Association. In furtherance of this goal, the Chapter assists the Alumni
Association to develop programs beneficial to Morehouse College. The Chapter
works to establish a network of close fellowship and cooperation among members
of the Morehouse College family (alumni, students, parents of students,
friends, supporters and fans) residing in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan
area. Through this network the Chapter endeavors to enhance the DC area's
knowledge of the philosophy, programs, and activities of Morehouse College and
of the accomplishments of its students, faculty, and alumni, to sponsor
fundraising activities for the benefit of the College, and to assist in the
recruitment of outstanding high school students in the area for admission to
Morehouse College. In connection with its fundraising activities, the Chapter
has established the Caesar Hill Washington, D.C., Morehouse Alumni Endowed
Scholarship Fund at Morehouse College. The Fund benefits Morehouse College
juniors and seniors who come from the Washington, DC, area. Such students may
earn scholarships each year up to $2000. The Chapter also sponsors Morehouse
students to travel in foreign countries, assists students in various emergency
situations and donates gifts of various types to organizations at the College.
The Chapter is a frequent winner of the Maynard Jackson Trophy which is awarded
each earn to the alumni chapter that contributes the greatest amount of money
to Morehouse College.
