The Beta Psi Foundation will make a gift of $15,000, over a three-year period, to Sigma Chi Foundation to support Sigma Chi’s leadership and scholarship mission.
Specifically, our gift will be credited to the Beta Psi Chapter’s Bell Chapter Challenge participation. Our gift, along with other contributions received in support of this initiative, have provided Beta Psi Chapter with Bell Chapter Challenge benefits at the Gold, or highest level for a period of three years (Fiscal Year 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15).
|$20,000 per year|
The intent of the Beta Psi Foundation is to build a strong relationship with the Sigma Chi Foundation and the General Fraternity that will serve to benefit Beta Psi Chapter now and in the future. This will complement our own Foundation Lead for Life program and scholarship initiatives.
Beta Psi Foundation and Sigma Chi Foundation Common goals:
The Sigma Chi Fraternity provides a crucible environment for the transition from youth to manhood, as well as a framework for lifelong learning and growth. Young men join Sigma Chi seeking common purpose, friendship, inspiration and an opportunity to realize their highest true selves.
Sigma Chi selects young men for membership based on set standards for character and conduct, embodied in our Jordan Standard and consistent with how society defines a principled and motivated young adult. Pledge education then challenges new members to complete preparation for, and commitment to, Sigma Chi’s values of courage, courtesy, wisdom, self-control, integrity, fidelity, and high ambition. However, for many brothers, educational advancement and values-based leadership training ends at initiation.
Sigma Chi Foundation is working to initiate a positive change in the culture of our chapters to reflect our values-based principles and to provide an environment that helps young men reach their full potential. They invest the contributions of each donor to train and inspire values-based leaders through Horizons, Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, Journey chapter retreats and Cornerstone. Fraternity leaders have long recognized the need for curriculum that touches every chapter, every year. Only through an integrated and comprehensive experience can Sigma Chi continue to progress toward our goal of being the preeminent collegiate leadership development organization, aligned, focused and living our core values.
The Beta Psi Foundation works to develop local programs to accomplish these same goals for all members of the Beta Psi Chapter.
