History of Endowment
The Beta Delta Chapter Endowment was established on the same day the chapter received their sixth Grand Senior President's Trophy during the 2013 Elevate - National Leadership Conference that was held on the Marshall University campus. The endowment was created to support the educational priorities of the Beta Delta Chapter which could include chapter retreats, merit and academic scholarships, participation in campus leadership programs, and attendance at national leadership programs like the Academy of Leadership and Elevate.
The Alpha Sigma Phi Foundation reviews each endowment fund annually and makes available a percentage of the fair market value of the Fund's assets to be distributed during the subsequent year, which is presently four and one-half percent (4.5%) of the rolling five-year average of the market value of the endowment at the end of the previous fiscal year. Every gift designated to benefit a chapter will be allocated in the following manner: 70% Temporary Chapter Fund, 20% Permanent Chapter Endowment and 10% Fund for Alpha Sigma Phi.
The Endowment's distributions shall be utilized exclusively for the following purposes:
- To provide funds to support the chapter for leadership, educational, academic and philanthropic purposes. Some examples include but are not limited to the following: registration costs to attend leadership programs (Fraternity, campus, other); merit or needs based scholarships for members, new members and/or potential members; educational speakers or workshops; chapter or prudential board retreats, etc.
- To provide funds for scholarships (partial or full) for undergraduate members to attend Fraternity leadership and educational programs that could include but are not limited to: Academy of Leadership, Burns Leadership Institute, Better Man Weekend, Elevate: National Leadership Conference, Grand Chapter, Sig Experience, etc.
- To provide funds for academic and/or needs based scholarships (partial or full) for qualified members currently enrolled as full-time undergraduate or graduate students.
