About Us

History

The Ivy Center of Huntsville/Madison County Foundation, Incorporated was established by Epsilon Gamma Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated on July 28, 2005.  It was incorporated on September 8th of that same year.  The Center represents the evolution of members’ desire to be of greater “service to all mankind.”

Since the chartering of Epsilon Gamma Omega Chapter on March 19, 1949, members have continuously sought innovative and creative ways of serving the community.  In the 1980s they began exploring the feasibility of a facility to centralize their services.  Instead of purchasing a sorority house, they formed a tax exempt, non-profit corporation.  That strategy accommodates program expansion as well as the acquisition of a facility to house programs and activities.  The corporation operates under the auspices of a Board of Directors.

Mission

Vision
