|Purpose and History|
The purpose of the Beta Theta Pi Foundation is to advance the educational mission and goals of Beta Theta Pi toward the vision of the Fraternity. The Foundation will strive to offer a variety of opportunities for gift support of the Fraternity's education activities, to communicate these opportunities to members regularly and to provide the resources necessary to produce an effective and efficient advancement program for the mutual benefit of donors and Beta Theta Pi.
The Foundation is responsible for executing an advancement program that engages Betas and Friends of Beta in the following areas of development:
The Beta Theta Pi Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, was created in 1990 to attract and receive gifts to support leadership and academic opportunities. Our federal tax ID number is 80-0296934, and for a more complete history of the Beta Foundation, click here.
Working with the Foundation Staff in Oxford, the Beta Theta Pi Foundation is lead by a 12-member Board of Directors, and together they are responsible for cultivating relationships with donors, soliciting gifts for the Beta Leadership Fund and providing stewardship reports showing the Foundation’s progress in developing men of principle for a principled life.”
Beta Leadership Fund
The annual Beta Leadership Fund appeal, combined with planned gifts from alumni, undergraduates, parents and friends, allows the Foundation to subsidize current and future educational activities of the Fraternity.
