Alpha Delta Omega Programs

 Our Foundation

The Ivy Center Foundation of Nashville, Inc. serves as the charitable arm of the sorority. The Foundation sponsors the fundraising activities such as the Biennial Precious Pearls Cotillion and more recently, the Johnella H. Martin Emerald Ball. The Cotillion provides scholarships and the Emerald Ball provided support for the Sickle Cell Program at Meharry Medical College.
