Mu Nu Foundation, Incorporated
Bro. Troy A. Priest, President
Mu Nu Chapter’s many community uplift projects and programs are largely funded by the Mu Nu Foundation, Inc., which is a non-profit, tax-exempt, publicly supported organization with approved Section 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service. The Foundation was formed on February 20, 2004, for the expressed purpose of carrying out the charitable activities of Mu Nu Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Some of these activities include:
Achievement Week - www.MuNuQues.org/AchievementWeek
Mu Nu Chapter observes Achievement Week annually in November by giving due recognition with an observance program to honor exceptional African-American male high school students from Montgomery County schools. We normally recognize and reward over 25 college-bound high school seniors for their scholastic achievements. Dinner and awards are presented to the young men with their families in attendance. Our keynote speakers have been court judges, county lawyers, pastors, congressmen, and other community leaders.
George B. Thomas, Sr. Learning Academy - www.MuNuQues.org/GBTLA
The George B. Thomas, Sr., Learning Academy, Inc., (GBTLA), also known as the “Saturday School,” is a tutorial and mentoring program that was started by members of Mu Nu Chapter in 1986 following the vision of Mu Nu Chapter’s own Dr. George B. Thomas, Sr. Saturday School has enhanced the academic achievement of thousands of youth in Montgomery County, Maryland, over the more than 25 consecutive years of its existence. It began as an outgrowth of the Mu Nu Chapter’s Assault on Illiteracy program serving fewer than two dozen students in a single room, to providing tutorial and mentoring to more than 3,000 county students, grades 1 through 12, at 12 area centers located at 12 area high schools. Saturday School operates annually from October to May with the support of Mu Nu Chapter, community volunteers, professional administrators and educators, and Montgomery County officials and sponsors. The Saturday School program's accolades include the State of Maryland Literacy award from the Governor, and recognition as one of the top-ten tutorial/mentoring programs in the Nation awarded by the Association of Cities and Counties.
Rudolph W. Snowden Memorial Scholarship - www.MuNuQues.org/Scholarship
The Rudolph W. Snowden Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc., (RWS) was named in honor of its principal founder and Charter member of Mu Nu Chapter. The major purposes of the Fund are to increase the number of African-American males attending college, and to assist in the preservation of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) through enrollments. Current scholarship grants range from $1,000 to $5,000 and can be applied to tuition, fees or other student expenses.
