Honoring Phi Psis who have made an impact
Permanently endowed scholarship funds may be established and named in accordance with a donor’s wishes through gifts of $50,000 or more. Donors can begin that process at any time by completing an agreement and making a minimum required gift. Funds then build to the endowment stage, at which point the Foundation begins to award the proceeds. The amount of the award will is determined annually by the Phi Kappa Phi Foundation Board of Directors and will be based upon 4.5% of the rolling previous five-year average of the fund’s quarterly market value. Contributions may be added to the fund at any time to increase the corpus. Any excess earnings not awarded for scholarships will be reinvested in the fund.
