African American Leadership Greenville (AALG)

African American Leadership Greenville (AALG) unites African American leaders in Greenville County under a banner of philanthropy, volunteerism and community impact. Since its inception in 1999, members have contributed nearly $5 million to improving education and economic mobility in our community.

AALG members participate in a range of service opportunities, from mentoring students in Greenville County- area schools to participating in community-wide volunteer events. Year-round networking and social events provide a great opportunity to connect with other community leaders, both personally and professionally.

AALG Scholarship

Since its inception, AALG’s focus has been high school graduation. We are pleased to now be able to further our work and assist students with the next vital step through our AALG scholarships.

We’re excited to announce that the AALG Scholarship Fund is returning to award eight local students with $5,000 scholarships for the 2022–2023 academic year. Click here to learn more and apply.
