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 Beta Theta Pi Foundation
Although a legally separate entity, the Beta Theta Pi Foundation exists to support the fraternity by raising and collecting resources that are then granted back to the fraternity to assist its mission of developing men of principle for a principled life. The Beta Theta Pi Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization which means that all gifts and donations are 100% tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Cultivate lifelong friendships with Betas, parents and Friends of Beta.
Solicit Betas and friends for cash, stock, endowment and estate gifts.

One does not have to be rich to make an impact through the Beta Foundation. Support from many Betas and friends over time is what is funding the leadership programs that are building future leaders for our Fraternity and our world.Thom Singer, San Diego State ’89
The Beta family is a far-reaching entity that comes with a commitment to (and joy of) assisting others throughout life. The Beta Leadership Fund played a critical role in helping me attend the Wooden Institute and Keystone, while also providing me with a Merit Scholarship for tuition. These tangible gifts aided in my growth as a man and as a leader, and I feel the urge to do my part to make many more undergraduate experiences as rich as mine.Chris Millett, Louisville ’13
The Beta Family consists of undergraduates, alumni, parents and friends who embrace and support the mission, vision, and core values of the Fraternity. The young men in the Beta Family deserve our support in their endeavor to live principled lives, as our countries and world cry out for the types of leaders we are shaping. This is why I continue to support the Beta Foundation each year.Dr. Tom Purinton, Kansas State ’63
