Foundation AEA Foundation grows with your support by Diane James National Vice President of Finance The Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation board of trustees thanks all of you who supported the Foundation in its first year. Your financial contribution shows insight and support for the long-range goals of the National Council of Alpha Sigma Alpha and the board of trustees of the Foundation. The Foundation has a long-range goal of promoting and supporting educational aims and of encouraging intellectual excellence through scholarships and programming. These goals will only be met by having a strong financial base for the Foundation. A great deal of money must be accumulated to enable the Foundation to support such projects

as regional leadership workshops and funding the attendance of members to educational seminars and programs. In the meantime, the Foundation board of trustees, which had its annual meeting during the Panhellenic Foundations Conference, Sept. 25-26, in Atlanta, GA , voted to use interest income from this past year to purchase three tapes on hazing for use by collegiate chapters and to pay the fee for anti-hazing speaker David Westol at the 1988 Convention. These programs are a direct result of your financial support of the Foundation this year. The Foundation needs your continued support to initiate its long-range goals. Send your financial contribution now by using the coupon below or the envelope in the Fall Phoenix. -tt -tt

Whither the Development Fund? by Rosemary Goss National President Alpha Sigma Alpha established the Development Fund in 1982 to provide additional support for new or expanded sorority programming. The money contributed to the Development Fund was used for Province Directors' Training Workshops, training of chapter consultants, development and production of Leadership Procedure Notebooks for each chapter officer, assistance with extension and the development and purchase of Alpha Sigma Alpha promotional materials. The money contributed to the Development Fund has made a difference to many chapters . The National Council wishes to thank those who have given so generously over the years. Last fall , Alpha Sigma Alpha announced the formation of the Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation, and the future of the Development Fund became unclear. This summer, the National Council weighed the advantages and disadvantages of retaining the Development Fund. Eventually, the advantage of soliciting for just one fund, the Foundation, for which a gift is tax deductible , outweighed the advantages of the Development Fund. The decision to combine the Development Fund and Foundation was made after careful consideration. Development Fund monies could be used in their entirety in a given year and for any purpose. But THE PHOENIX OF ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA

for the next few years, the majority of Foundation monies will be set aside to build an endowment. In the future, the Foundation endowment will produce revenues for scholarships, leadership development and the development of educational materials. Each time an Alpha Sigma Alpha makes a contribution (no matter how small) to the Foundation, that future comes closer. Make it your goal to make an annual contribution that will make a difference to the future of your sorority. -tt -tt
