How to start a fund

A Chapter can establish a fund (almost 40 already have one) to support local chapter initiatives. The financial requirement to start a fund is $25,000, however, this amount can be contributed to by multiple members over a period of time as necessary to meet the requirement.

Once established, Chapter Designated Funds are professionally managed as part of the Educational Foundation’s investment portfolio and can be used for educational purposes, including scholarships, member education, and other educational grants. As the fund is within the Educational Foundation (a 501(c)3 charitable organization), donations to the fund should be eligible for an employer corporate match where offered.¬†There is a 1% administrative fee applied to all funds to offset costs incurred by Zeta Psi.

If you are interested in starting a fund, please reach out to Barth Gillan, Chief Development Officer (gillan@zetapsi.org).
