The Alpha Tau Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. in Tuscaloosa, Alabama has a goal to increase their scholarship giving by 50%.

Together with the Bridge Builder Friendship Foundation, the charitable arm of their fraternity, they have donated a total of $335,000 to support the education of young individuals residing in Tuscaloosa, Bibb, Greene, Hale, Pickens, and Sumter counties.
