Mission and History

Founded in 1995 by the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Rho Theta Omega Chapter, The Ivy Legacy Foundation (TILF) is a charitable entity fully committed to making an educational, cultural, and societal difference in the Greater Philadelphia community.

TILF was initially created to raise scholarship dollars for college-bound graduating high school seniors as well as non-traditional students pursuing higher education. To date, over $277,000 in scholarships has been awarded. The Foundation also supports other charities in our area due to the tremendous need that exists among our local population.
