The Diamond Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 public charitable organization. The foundation was created in 2003 with the goal of enhancing scholarship opportunities for youth in our local community. Since its inception, the foundation has provided scholarships annually. Through its scholarship programs and grants, the foundation has provided over $170,000 in awards . We believe that the investment in our youth is the greatest service that we can provide. We know that such an investment will grow multi-fold to create our next generation of engineers, educators, business leaders, physicians and lawyers. In addition to our scholarship program, we proudly support the New Brunswick Alumni Kappa League Program. This is youth development and mentoring program for young men from 7th to 12th grade which focuses on academic preparedness, leadership training and personal etiquette and accountability. The Diamond Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the New Brunswick Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
