About Us



 The Omicron Sigma Lambda (OSL) Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. established the First Of All Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3, in 2005 to assist deserving young men in their pursuit of higher education and to provide leadership opportunities for individuals throughout Rutherford County, TN. Through our efforts and involvement in the community we have made great strides in helping others receive the necessary tools to be productive members of society.
