DEA GRANT PROGRAM  OUR IMPACT ENHANCING THE ACADEMIC CULTURE OF BETA’S LIVING ENVIRONMENTS The Designated Educational Area Grant Program allows alumni to make gifts to the Beta Foundation that are earmarked for funding educational areas or projects of chapter houses. Once a DEA Grant application is approved by the Foundation Board, the funds can be used to fully or partially subsidize educational projects such as libraries, study rooms, computer rooms, computer equipment, internet and access space.

CHAPTERS UTILIZING  THE DEA GRANT PROGRAM Larry Prohaska, Iowa State ’89  House Corporation President “We have used the DEA Grant Program as part of the IOWA STATE CHAPTER CAMPAIGN, which helped fund a new fire sprinkler system and other educational improvements to the chapter house. We have a few more major renovations in store, which will continue to improve our facility for the men of Tau Sigma.”

Major Benefits of the DEA Grant Program  Funds major educational chapter house projects.  Provides a tax-deductible option for local chapter campaigns.  Annual grants can offset operational upkeep of educational areas.

Richard Kaniss, Tennessee ’76 “I displayed the Men of Principle tenants inside my command headquarters after 9/11, which helped many foreign nationals quickly understand my character, and how I was going to work with them. And, today, I only give to what I believe makes a direct impact! It’s clear our FUTURE GENERATIONS NEED THE LEADERSHIP and character building programs funded by the Beta Foundation.”


Our Supporters “The size of the diamond is not nearly as important as the symbol it represents. So, too, are the annual Foundation gifts from all Betas and friends, which (large or small) help our young men of principle shine each year. Thankfully, my company offered a matching gift program, which allowed me to double my support!” — Dan Westra, Virginia Tech ’76; Advisory Council

ESTATE GIFT  Sweetheart Honors Beta Ties with Estate Gift ALBERTA ILIFF SHATTUCK, WIDOW OF ROBERT C. SHATTUCK, DENVER ’26 Alberta passed away at the age of 101 in 2011, and this year the Foundation received a gift from a charitable remainder trust worth $41,325. In a letter from 1999, Alberta informed the Foundation of her estate plans by stating, “Bob dearly loved Beta, and it meant a great deal to him in many ways. The Fraternity has held a prominent place in both the Shattuck and Iliff families over the years. Both of our fathers, my two brothers and our two sons were initiated into the Alpha Zeta Chapter in Denver. I am pleased that I am able to make this gift to the Fraternity.”


BLF AND DONOR RECOGNITION  OUR SUPPORTERS

——— LEGEND ——— “In my four years as an alumnus, I have come to learn the true meaning of FRIENDSHIP AND FIDELITY thanks to the ‘polishing effect’ that comes with living as a man of principle. Much like our lives, each of our diamonds may get scuffed and tarnished over time, but through understanding and a commitment to brotherhood, we become the BETA BROTHERS we were always meant to be.”

“The Beta diamond is symbolic of my challenges and experiences in the Fraternity, where I have learned more about friendship, trust and people than I could have ever imagined. We appreciate diamonds because of their cut and polished value and because of the light they reflect. Therefore, it’s important that my actions shine in a way that advances the greater good of our Fraternity and our society.”

“I support the BLF each year because I believe in the work it does for young men. There is strong value in the leadership programs Beta offers because they teach skills for the work place and life skills important for understanding the world. Often these skills are not part of standard college curriculum, but they remain extremely critical.” — Matthew Zahn, George Washington ’15 Brother Zahn with Apple CEO Tim Cook at George Washington University’s commencement reception.

ESTATE GIFT  Estate Gift Benefits Men of Principle

ROBERT J. HANGER, OHIO STATE ‘42 The Foundation received an unrestricted estate gift of $19,052 from Brother Hanger’s Charitable Remainder Trust, which will be split between the Beta Leadership Fund and the Founders Fund endowment. When informing the Foundation of his estate plans back in 2000, Brother Hanger wrote, “I am 81 years old now, and my wife is a bit younger, so who knows how much longer I’ll be able to sing ‘Marching Along.’ Nonetheless, the distribution from my trust will surely arrive one day.” INDEED IT DID, BROTHER!

Tammy Arnold, mother of Kyle Arnold Case Western Reserve ’09 “The brightness of THE BETA DIAMOND WAS SHOWN TO ME and my family by the quick and genuine response of my son’s Beta brothers when he passed away suddenly at the age of 26. Many young men came to honor Kyle, and my heart glows with warmth when I think of his Beta brothers and the confidence and poise he gained from attending your leadership programs. You made a strong light shine for my family through the darkest days we could ever know, and we are honored to keep Kyle’s memory alive by investing in other young men of principle.” Photo: Tammy Arnold with her son Kyle (center), daughter Emily and son Derek.

Our Guide to Giving “At first I gave to the Foundation because I thought I was just helping my General Fraternity. But, while attending the Wooden Institute, I learned about everything the Foundation does to support thousands of men like me each year. Beta can do so much for men like me, but doing purposeful things costs money. I have decided to support the Beta Leadership Fund for the rest of my life, and I am proud to build a bridge for millions of Betas to come.” — Zach Lepperd, Truman State ’17 Photo: Brother Lepperd (left) with Reagan Simmons, Truman State ’17, after the chapter’s spring initiation held at the Zeta Phi Chapter House at the University of Missouri.

OUR WAYS TO GIVE

ONLINE Giving with your credit card online at beta.org/gift is a quick and secure way to make a contribution to the Beta Foundation. Online, you can make a one-time gift or establish a recurring gift in monthly, quarterly or yearly installments. The Foundation accepts Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Discover.

RECURRING CREDIT CARD GIFT Establishing a recurring credit card gift eliminates check writing, minimizes solicitations and breaks down your giving into manageable amounts. And, the Foundation can lower fundraising costs and make a year-round impact with your giving. Visit beta.org/autokai to establish your recurring gift in monthly, quarterly or yearly installments.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS

APPRECIATED STOCK/SECURITIES

SECURE YOUR PLACE IN HISTORY

Numerous companies match an employee’s personal donation to non-profit, tax exempt foundations. Visit beta.org for a listing of companies affiliated with the Beta Foundation, or ask if your employer participates in a gift-matching program. You may be able to double, or even triple, your Beta Foundation giving.

Multiple benefits are realized when using appreciated stock as a means for giving. Our professional staff in Oxford can work with your financial advisor to ensure your stock gift maximizes charitable tax benefits and makes a direct impact on Beta’s undergraduates through our award-winning leadership programs.

More than 7,000 Betas and friends have secured their personalized brick in the Beta Walkway at the Administrative Office in Oxford, Ohio. Bricks are placed in sections by chapter and roll number. Securing a brick requires a gift of $350 or more to the Beta Leadership Fund. Visit beta. org/brick to secure your place in history.

KEEPING HIS PROMISES

and shining his diamond bright. “My Beta experience gave me an opportunity to develop lifelong friendships and polish my leadership skills as I tried to serve and organize others. I have never again had an opportunity to learn so much about men I respected and men I was determined to help succeed. I’m proud to support The Promises to Keep Campaign because it is helping meet the growing need for comprehensive leadership training programs for young Beta brothers who must lead our world in years to come.” — Richard G. Lugar, Denison ’54 Retired U.S. Senator and Spokesman of the Men of Principle Initiative
