Omicron Pi Foundation (OPF) is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempted corporation which was incorporated January 12, 2015 in the state of Texas. Omicron Pi Foundation came into fruition as a result of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. desire to have a charitable foundation which could provide uplift for the community and constituency that the fraternity serves locally.
