Gamma CIF Tax Deductible Donation Opportunity

Our Chapter has been funding three undergrad scholarships per year for the past few years ($700/ea $2,100 total). The majority of the funding is available from the money that is in our Gamma Chapter Investment Fund through our National Foundation. Our current balance of $37K allows us to disburse $1,481 (4% annual disbursement allowance) annually. The remaining balance is covered by individual alumni donations or our Alumni Association bank account. We would like to continue to grow our CIF balance. All donations are tax deductible. In addition, we have an alum that has pledged to match dollar for dollar (up to $2K) any donations made by alumni before 1/31/18. If you would like to make a donation to our Gamma CIF the following are ways you can do it:

By Check: Make check out to Pi Kapp Foundation. Write in comment line Gamma CIF. Send to Pi Kappa Phi Foundation, 2015 Ayrsely Town Blvd Suite 200, Charlotte, NC 28273.
