FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

In 1945, Delta Sigma Pi established a charitable giving foundation which, when consolidated with other opportunities for giving, evolved into today’s Delta Sigma Pi Leadership Foundation.  For more than 70 years, generous gifts from Deltasigs have supported the mission of the Leadership Foundation, which is to financially support educational and charitable programs that enable members to achieve individual and professional excellence.

Each year, Delta Sigma Pi’s Leadership Foundation provides scholarships for undergraduates and graduate members.  Contributions from the Foundation also support the leadership development and training offered at LEAD SchoolsLEAD Provincial ConferencesGrand Chapter Congress, and other enriching programs such as the Scholarship Key and Collegian of the Year programs.  Rewarding excellence, providing scholarships, and enhanced training make rich educational experiences possible for a wider range of students—truly equipping and preparing the business and community leaders of the future.

These programs not only assist both collegiate and alumni members by providing valuable networking, but help build a cornerstone from which students can launch their professional, civic and Fraternal leadership.”

-Carrie Sagel Burns, Southern Provincial Vice President

In 2012, Eddie Stephens endowed the “Eddie Stephens – South Florida Leadership Fund” which provided travel grants for three collegiate chapters in South Florida.

In 2018, the Leadership Foundation of Delta Sigma Pi approved a request to expand the Eddie & Jacquie Stephens Travel Fund to include grants to all chapters within the South Atlantic Region.  Previously, this benefited 4 chapters in South Florida, now it provides grants to all seven collegiate chapters in the South Atlantic Region who send delegates to Provincial Lead Conferences and Grand Chapter Congress.
