About us

The Twenty Pearls Foundation, Inc. was established in 2003 by the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Xi Gamma Omega Chapter in Oakland Ca.  The purpose of the non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization is to expand the reach, increase impact and deliver more abundantly on the sorority’s mission to provide “Service to All Mankind.”


The Twenty Pearls Foundation, Inc. is committed to leading efforts to address some of the most critical needs of the Oakland community through community based events focused on health and wellness, economic empowerment and impact, higher education and the arts.  In addition to our community events and service programs, the foundation awards scholarships annually to graduating seniors who are enrolled in a four year college or university.
