Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter (PGCAC)
More than four decades ago, visionary businesswoman and educator Ethel Mae Rogers Grundy galvanized 22 professional women residing in Prince George’s County, Maryland to focus on strategies to strengthen Black families. In spite of the documented growing Black wealth experienced by a number of residents, the compelling depths of poverty challenged others. As such, the historic chartering of the premiere Prince George’s County Alumnae Chapter became reality on March 31,1974. Building on the cascading programmatic mandate of the Sorority, the 23 charter members targeted its programming to address the diversity of the County. Now, with a membership of over 1,100 Black college-educated women, the programmatic thrust of this award-winning and now largest chapter in all of Delta, spans the entire County and beyond. The Chapter’s accomplishments continue to be fortified by an increasing number of generous individual supporters and community-based partnerships with businesses, churches, colleges and universities, foundations, governmental entities, non-profit organizations, public schools, and the like.
