The Foundation provides educational support directly to student members and supports the educational initiatives of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity though the solicitation of donations from alumni and friends of Pi Kappa Phi. Several scholarships recognize Pi Kappa Phi undergraduate and graduate students who excel in areas of academics, chapter leadership and campus/community involvement. These scholarships underscore an important part of the Foundation’s mission while providing real and tangible support to student leaders who bring credit to themselves and their fraternity.
Jerry Brewer, chairman of the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation said, “Part of Pi Kappa Phi’s recent success can be summed up in two words: compelling and differentiating. We have a compelling story toward which young men gravitate. The values of Pi Kappa Phi have a timeless resonance and when coupled with the specific histories and traditions of our local chapters, create an experience that young men want to be a part of. At the same time, the educational programs and service opportunities we offer young men are truly differentiating from other fraternities.”
