The purpose for which the Corporation is formed is exclusively for educational, life skills development, charitable and other similar non-profitable purposes, as contemplated by Section 501© (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (any reference herein to any provision of such Code shall be deemed to mean provisions as now or hereafter existing, amended, supplemented or supersede). More specifically, the purpose of the Corporation is to operate exclusively for charitable, youth development and educational purposes; to fund educational scholarships, loans and other types of financial aid to worthy individuals, both undergraduate and graduate; to assist community groups and individuals in educational, civic improvement and charitable activity; to accept and make donations of money, property, real or personal, to invest in real estate and personal property for educational and charitable purposes; to enter into any kind of activity, and to perform and carry out contract of any kind necessary to, or in connection with or incidental to the accomplishment of the non-profit purposes of the Corporation; to promote the general welfare by providing from time to time services to the community to encourage and promote the development of its people, physical assets and its institutions; to exercise all the powers conferred upon Corporation.

To obtain seed money for foundation projects, Kappa Community Development Foundation, Inc. submitted a proposal for a community based grant with the Montgomery County Collaborative Council for Children, Youth and Families After-School Activities Program. Simply stated, the objectives of the program were: (1) to raise the GPA of each participant; (2) to expose participants to successful Black male achievers; and (3) to encourage participants to prepare for college majors.

The thrust of the language contained in the proposal hammered home the urgency of equipping young black males with the necessary skill set to compete in a global economy. Thanks to insightful advice and counsel of Tracy Webb (the grant coordinator), the Men of Distinction proposal received the green light and its first check in the fall of 2006. Since its inception, the Guide Right outreach initiatives has received almost $25,000 of support from Montgomery County. In addition, the Kappa Community Development Foundation is being utilized for the specific purpose of distributing the Central Senior High Alumni Kappa  Scholarship funds to the scholarship recipients and their respective colleges/university.
