The Penn Theta House Corporation, on behalf of the undergraduate chapter, is seeking to endow the Penn Theta Chapter Leadership Fund by raising $550,000 in cash and pledges to be fulfilled over the next five years.
- $400,000 will fund an endowment providing an annual 5% grant ($20,000) in programming and support for the Penn Theta Chapter starting in the year 2021.
- $20,000 will be used annually over the next five years to provide leadership development opportunities while the endowment is being funded.
- $50,000 will be used for fundraising related costs.
The annual $20,000 grant will provide 18 Penn Theta brothers exposure to world class leadership programming at five different leadership events. The chapter as a whole will be provided three online chapter educational support tools, on campus health and wellness programming and a tailored chapter retreat/workshop. The chapter’s new-member classes will be provided the tools and training necessary to successfully start their fraternal journey. The programming lineup is set and administered by the National Fraternity and is reevaluated on an annual basis to allow undergraduates to attend the most relevant and beneficial programming available. The Penn Theta House Corporation and Chapter Advisors will be charged with selecting the undergraduates who will attend each event/training.
