APCAA's 10-Year-Forward March Toward Centennial Needs Your Last-Mile Support


APCAA Brotherhood:

In the summer of 2014, our organization was federally chartered as a 501(c)(3) with the expressed goal of establishing the Alpha Rho Chapter Endowed Scholarship Fund at Morehouse College (now valued at $314,000+). Alongside that fund goal, we created the 90th Anniversary Memorial Obelisk, and separate from the college’s account, we underwrote a 10-year-forward administrative account that estimated the extensive research, marketing/design, website design/maintenance, printing, and resource membership fees required to drive association awareness and power a path leading to our 100th anniversary on January 5, 2024.

As described in the initial campaign materials from 2014 (archived in the Alpha Rho Chapter private Facebook group), we set out to cement a historic campaign that will serve as a blueprint for the rising generation of Alpha Rho Men well into, and beyond the next 100 years. And to be honest – we far exceeded that intention – especially considering we are just now crossing the 8-year mark.

Every Chapter Brother should take great pride in the signature outtake from the first few years of the association: the Alpha Rho International Census (APIC). No other undergraduate, alumni or college affinity chapter in Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. can match or rival our development of a directory that lists (with images) every chapter initiate dating back almost 100 years. Not even the national office has records as extensive or exact.

For the most part, the majority of the 10-year-forward expenses were fixed and have delivered as projected. The sole exception is the web-hosting service ( which has fluctuated over the past few years based on additional features we’ve activated since the original budget was prepared in 2014 (email marketing, etc.) Even the base monthly rate for hosting has risen – something we could not project at our campaign start.
