Zeta Phi Lambda Chapter, #253, was founded in Stamford, Connecticut on April 21, 1957. Chapter founders were Hugh Bell, Joseph Carwin, William Decker Clark, Cecil Gallup, Robert Levister, Jack Lee and Alvin Napper. The chapter currently has 20 active members. Bro Decker Clark was Eastern Regional Director from 1967 to 1971. He passed on to Omega Chapter in 2008. In 1990 and 2003, Zeta Phi Lambda had the honor of hosting the Eastern Regional Convention. In 2008, the South Norwalk Library was renamed in honor of Bro. Otha Brown.
For over two decades, the Foundation has provided tens of thousands of dollars of scholarship assistance to deserving, college bound youth in Fairfield County. The Foundation’s signature scholarship fundraising event is an annual Scholarship Brunch. During our 2022 brunch, we awarded $4,000 scholarships to five high school graduates for a total of $20,00 in scholarship assistance thanks to the kind support of many individuals and organizations.
The Zeta Phi Lambda Charitable Foundation is a non-profit corporation that operates exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Its purpose is to provide academic scholarships and charitable advocacy for underrepresented communities in the Fairfield County CT geography.
