Message from the President


On behalf of the Board of Directors, I welcome you to the Divine 9 Educational and Charitable Foundation’s website. The Foundation is responsible for securing funds for student scholarships and funds for other educational and charitable community programs. Governed by a nine-member Board of Directors, the Foundation seeks to work collaboratively with individuals, businesses, and organizations to promote the mission and vision of the Foundation.

The Board of Directors has adopted the motto of Achievement through Education to articulate the philosophy of the Foundation  relative to student success and career aspirations. The directors believe that students can achieve their dreams  upon pursuing educational goals. Each year, the Foundation presents four scholarships to assist students with college funding. We invite you to help support education by making a donation to the Divine 9 Educational and Charitable Foundation.

At the National Pan Hellenic Council of Houston's 60th Anniversary Celebration on June 24, 2018, the Foundation recognized Outstanding Sorority and Fraternity members.  The winners were:

We congratulate the winners, and we thank them for their service to their chapters, as well as the communities in which they serve.

To our website visitors, thank you for your interest in the Foundation, and thank you for financial contributions! 

Warm Regards,

Charlotte Washington, President
