Over $280,000 Raised on Phi Delta Theta Foundation’s Annual Giving Day

Thanks to the support of over 1,200 donors!

The Phi Delta Theta Foundation is proud to announce the results of our second annual Giving Day Chapter Challenge. Giving Day raised more than $280,000 from more than 1,200 members and friends of Phi Delta Theta. These funds will be used to provide educational resources to Phis from campuses across the United States and Canada. This achievement is a testament to the incredible dedication and commitment of the Phi Delta Theta brotherhood.

We are also excited to announce and congratulate the following chapters for their outstanding efforts in our Giving Day competition.

The 2024 Giving Day competition was proudly sponsored by Brother Hugh D. King, SMU ’57. Brother King will fund a chapter leadership fund for the eight winning chapters in the amount of $2,000 each. These funds can help the chapters with educational expenses such as conference travel, academic awards, chapter house improvements*, chapter speakers, and other educational expenses.

*Chapter house improvements must be deemed educational in order to qualify.

A chapter can only win access to one of the prize funds, if a chapter raised the most and had the highest chapter participation the second award goes to the chapter who raised the second highest amount (chapters that were highest in both are indicated below by ** next to their chapter name).

Here are the winners of a $2,000 chapter leadership fund:

Alpha Division

Most Raised: Texas Delta, Southern Methodist University
Highest Participation: Arkansas Alpha, University of Arkansas
