OUR STORY

In 2017, members of the Chicago Alumni Network of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc. founded the We CAN Achieve Foundation with the purpose of offering financial assistance to college students.  The We CAN Foundation is registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.  Our goal is to support the various Chapters of Sigma Lambda Beta with educational scholarships and also fill the need of strong male mentorship within in our communities of color. 

We Can Achieve Foundation is committed to investing our time, resources and professional expertise to further service our community. Since 2017, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary donations, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. For that reason, in addition to our fiscal goals we developed a partnership with the Boy Scouts of America by creating two different Cub Scout Packs in Chicago and have partnered with Brothers of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity to help establish and support the Young Stallions Club. 


Just imagine what We Can Achieve together!
