Kansas Epsilon (Emporia State) and Emporia Alumni Club Collaborate With University Foundation to Build Local Endowed Scholarship Fund



The Emporia Phi Delta Theta Alumni Chapter partnered with the Emporia State University Foundation in 2013 to launch an initiative to build its existing local endowed scholarship from $42K to $145K by the chapter’s 45th anniversary celebration in June of 2014. Recently, undergraduate brothers were joined by Foundation development officers to produce appeal videos to round-out the Sound Learning & Leadership Fund drive initiative. The $100K goal is 83% met through one-time gifts and five year pledges from 11% of the alumni roster. This Kansas Epsilon scholarship initiative is part of the University’s Now & Forever Major Campaign.
