The Pi Kappa Phi Foundation works to connect the charitable intentions of Pi Kappa Phi alumni and friends with the desire of today’s student members to have a memorable and valuable undergraduate Pi Kappa Phi experience. The primary mission of the Foundation is to provide financial support for the leadership and education programming of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity.
Each year, the Foundation provides more than $100,000 in educational grants to support leadership development programs for our student members. In addition, the Foundation also recognizes a handful of students each year with a number of merit based scholarships. Most notably of these is the Foundation’s Pi Kapp Scholars program through which seven students are annually identified with Pi Kappa Phi’s highest (and longest running) academic award. The Foundation contributed $340,626 to the fraternity and its students through various grant channels in 2014.
The National President’s Circle recognizes current undergraduate students who have made a gift of $20.00 or more to the Foundation. These gifts go towards Pi Kappa Phi’s areas of greatest need and help to support the costs of current students’ leadership and educational programs. Several members of the Theta Pi chapter participate in this giving club annually.
Theta Pi chapter alumni and students making contributions to the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation in 2014 include:
- Taylor Harrison Kemp (Presidents Leadership Circle)
- Cory Streit Schmoker (Presidents Leadership Circle)
- Patrick Sang-won Shin (Presidents Leadership Circle)
- Joshua Allen White
