A gift to the Educational Foundation is one of the best ways you can support Beta Rho undergrads AND it has some unique benefits. In fact, some would say it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

• Gifts are Tax-Deductible
Unlike gifts to our annual fund, gifts to the Educational Foundation are tax-deductible because the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation is a 501(C)(3) public charity. The funds are earmarked and placed into our chapter’s account, and then you receive tax-deductions for your contribution.

 We’re Bettering our Brotherhood
The funds in The Educational Foundation will be used to provide scholarships to members and candidates of the chapter. Scholarships will take some of the financial burden off of our undergrads, and by helping fund their education, we can help ensure their future personal and professional success and ultimately, better our brotherhood.

 It’s a Chance to Grow the Brotherhood
Through offering scholarships to our undergrads, we can continue to instill the values of Sigma Nu in more and more young men at Penn.

“Offering scholarships gives potential pledges an incentive to join Sigma Nu,” says Pete Burgum ’65, a donor to the Educational Foundation. “If they know there is a potential to earn a scholarship, they will be more likely to join the fraternity if they were already considering pledging.”

The Educational Foundation also sets us apart from other fraternities on campus. This unique opportunity for scholarship assistance will keep our brotherhood strong.

We Need Your Help to Grow our Funds and Provide Scholarships
We currently have not used any of the money in our account. Our goal is to accumulate a total of $50,000 before providing scholarships to any undergraduates. We are currently at about $30,000 and we need your help to reach our goal.
