Congratulations to OPHELIA Founder and Chairman Jameece Pinckney on Receiving the Prestigious Vera Bradley Award!
The OPHELIA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established to promote and aid charitable, educational and humanitarian activities, with a special emphasis on those activities that improve the lives of youth, families and communities. OPHELIA means "help" in Greek, and we strive to help address health disparities and poverty-related issues in the community through education. To further support our youth, we established our scholarship program to help high school seniors fulfill their higher education goals.
Focus on health-related issues that cause disparities in our community
Support initiatives and provide resources to advance the educational goals of our youth
Provide learning and leadership opportunities to help create the next generation of leaders
Help close the poverty gap by providing resources to our community
We are beyond proud of our scholars. Many have overcome significant hurdles to get where they are and are excelling in their collegiate careers. Class of 2022 scholarships application will be available February 2022.
We are grateful for the generosity of our donors, whose belief in our mission has helped hundreds of students. The donations have provided hundreds of students with school supplies and backpacks, college scholarships, hot meals and more.
“Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to receive this scholarship! It is greatly appreciated by my parents and me. It will allow my parents and me to experience financial ease, as they prepare to send two children to college! Words can’t describe my excitement as a recipient.”
