Friend of Beta and Parent Giving
Every year hundreds of Beta Parents, wives/widows, Fraternity/Sorority professionals, and other friends of the Fraternity support the Beta Foundation. The Foundation is encouraged that many believe you don’t need to be a member of Beta Theta Pi to believe in and support our mission of developing men of principle for a principled life.
Friend of Beta Giving Program
Not only do Friends of Beta support the Fraternity with their time as advisors and facilitators, but they also give of their treasure to the Beta Foundation. For the period of February – July, 2016, Friends of Beta will have the opportunity to support the all-important Promises to Keep Campaign. Long-time Friend of Beta Sue Kraft Fussell is serving as the Beta Foundation’s Honorary Friend of Beta Chair in 2015-16.
Parent Giving Program
Each year Beta Parents not only support their sons’ chapters at the local level, but they also support their sons’ development through generous gifts to the Beta Leadership Fund. Important communication to all Beta parents is provided throughout the year through the Fraternity’s monthly eNewsletter and electronic communication from the Foundation’s 2016 Honorary Parent Chairs Tim and Pam Naab (parents of Andrew Naab, Cincinnati ’16). From March – July 2016, Beta Parents will also have the opportunity to support Beta’s Promises to Keep Campaign: Advancing the Men of Principle Initiative.
Take Advantage of the Newly Expanded Beta Walkway
The most popular way Beta parents and other Friends of Beta support the Foundation is by purchasing a brick in the Beta Walkway at the Fraternity’s Administrative Office in Oxford, Ohio. Parents and Friends of Beta are encouraged to purchase bricks for themselves, as they will be placed in the newly expanded Parents and Friend of Beta sections of the walkway. Bricks can also be purchased for other individuals, and they make great holiday, birthday, or graduation gifts. To see a list of Friends of Beta who are honored in the Brick Walkway, click here.
