About Us

The Five Pearls Foundation, is a nonprofit 501©3 public charity created to bring added value to the community service projects of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc, Sigma Nu Zeta Chapter. The idea of the Five Pearls Foundation was conceived by ten women who dreamed of providing extraordinary service to their community.

We pursue our mission by developing strategic partnerships with existing organizations. Additionally, we are on a quest to continually explore opportunities to provide support for our core programs centered around empowering youth to succeed and overcome challenges during vulnerable circumstances at critical stages in their lives. These programs include the Stork’s Nest focusing on prenatal care, our scholarship program tailored toward high-achieving college students, and our Archonette Program supporting our overarching mission to cultivate enriching youth/community development initiatives.

It is our vision that the Five Pearls Foundation will:

  • Decrease the incidence of premature births in Harlem.
  • Enable under-served, low income women of color to have the support that will lift them out of the dark cycle of poverty and loneliness into a supportive nurturing environment reinforcing a path toward financial stability.
  • Expose our youth to cultural, educational and economic opportunities that will open them up to new possibilities for their lives and create well rounded, intelligent, confident and healthy young adults who are prepared for higher education and viable careers.

We pursue our mission by developing strategic partnerships with existing organizations. To provide support for our prenatal care program, the Stork’s Nest, to develop scholarship opportunities for college students and to provide support for youth and community development initiatives.
