The Leaders of Tomorrow 2 0 1 1 A n n ua l R e p o rt P h i K a p p a Ta u F o u n d a t i o n


I see the positive difference “our leadership programs are making for today’s Phi Taus. By contributing to the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation I’m assured these unique opportunities will continue. —Warren Mattox, Nebraska Wesleyan ’69

Support the Leaders of Tomorrow True leadership is needed at every level of today’s society, from the Little League baseball field to the halls of Congress. Phi Kappa Tau has a responsibility to ensure that the leaders of tomorrow are prepared with the life skills needed to tackle the challenges of tomorrow—big and small.

ast month I attended Phi Kappa Tau’s second annual national community service event at Flying Horse Farms, just outside of Columbus, Ohio. During my time on site, I had the chance to speak with an alumnus who recently retired from a manufacturing job. He asked me, “What is our product?” The question was a basic and simple one, but I had trouble giving a definite answer. Since that time, I have been thinking about his question, and I believe I have the answer for our brother. In a manufacturing system, the first step is finding your suppliers. Phi Kappa Tau’s suppliers are volunteers, donors and engaged alumni. They supply us with the dollars and human resources to be successful in the first step of this process. And we’re lucky because our suppliers are dedicated supporters of our Fraternity’s mission. Once we input our supplies of dollars and volunteers, the Phi Kappa Tau “machine” gets to work. Leadership Academy, Regional Conferences, Presidents Academy, scholarship programs and many other areas of operations begin to function. All of these programs, scholarships, grants, and initiatives are only possible because of the volunteers who execute them and the donors who fund them. So what is Phi Kappa Tau producing? The leaders of tomorrow. As the chairman of the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation, I am pleased to present to you this year’s annual report: The Leaders of Tomorrow. Throughout this publication you will see lists of our “suppliers,” and you will learn more about the programs, scholarships, grants, and support that Phi Kappa Tau is able to offer because of our dedicated volunteers and donors. During the National Community Service Event, I met the leaders of tomorrow. They came from all parts of the country, wore different types of clothing, and had different personalities and backgrounds. They shoveled dirt, poured concrete and landscaped, but one thing united them … their mark of distinction as members of this great Fraternity and their loyalty to Phi, Kappa, and Tau. On behalf of the Foundation Board of Trustees and Foundation staff, we thank all brothers, parents, and Phriends who continue to support the mission and vision of Phi Kappa Tau. You truly are supporting the leaders of tomorrow! Best fraternal regards, David A. Ruckman, Ohio State ’62 Chairman, Phi Kappa Tau Foundation

A select group of undergraduate men have made their choice to associate with the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity. These young brothers made this choice for many of the same reasons you did— friendship, scholarship and leadership. We need leaders that are true men of character, and Phi Kappa Tau is prepared to provide our young brothers with the training and experiences that only the best Fraternity can offer. For this to happen, these young men need you to make another choice for Phi Kappa Tau—to help the Foundation prepare the leaders of tomorrow.

Ewing T. Boles Society

“No matter how much I do for Phi Kappa Tau, I can never repay it for all it has done for me.” —Ewing T. Boles, Centre ’14

New Annual Giving Societies The Phi Kappa Tau Foundation now has several giving societies that help the Fraternity and Foundation foster the tradition of philanthropy by honoring our most generous and loyal supporters. Making an annual gift at one of the giving society levels is a great way to support the leaders of tomorrow. Beginning in January 2012, the Foundation Board of Trustees approved the creation of three new societies that would recognize donors who give at the $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000 level annually. Chairman’s Society Membership in the Chairman’s Society is awarded to donors who contribute $10,000 or more annually. Laurel Wreath Society Membership in the Laurel Wreath Society is awarded to donors who contribute $5,000 or more annually. Red Carnation Society Membership in the Red Carnation Society is awarded to donors who contribute $2,500 or more annually. The Boles Society will remain the society that is awarded to donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually.


2011 annual report

Ewing T. Boles, Centre ’14, envisioned Phi Kappa Tau’s future as a strong, vibrant fraternity that offered the very best in leadership opportunities for young men. He established the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation in 1945 and created a vehicle for alumni to make charitable gifts to ensure that support for programming would always be available. In 1983, Boles was named an honorary founding father of the Fraternity, and that same year, he helped pioneer Phi Kappa Tau’s $3-million campaign with his personal donation of $1 million. His gift was the single, largest gift to a fraternity at that time. Because of his generosity, he was awarded the North-American Interfraternity Conference Gold Medal of Distinction. The Phi Kappa Tau Executive Offices Building in Oxford, Ohio, is named in his honor. Membership in the Boles Society is awarded to donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually.

Men of Chara The Phi Kappa Tau Foundation supports the Fraternity’s Men of Character Programs with general and specific gifts that donors allocate for certain programs. These program sponsorships are given by members and phriends who understand the importance of leadership development. A sponsorship to one of Phi Kappa Tau’s Men of Character Programs allows the leaders of tomorrow to attend these programs at minimal cost to themselves or their chapter.

2011 Hole in the Wall Stipend Recipients Phi Kappa Tau brothers travel to Hole in the Wall Camps, now SeriousFun camps, throughout the country and overseas to serve as positive male role models. Hundreds of men volunteer as cabin counselors, activity specialists, unit leaders, and other camp staff during a week or summer as a camp counselor. The Phi Kappa Tau Foundation provides up to $300 in travel stipends to any undergraduate who volunteers at a camp.

I spent an entire summer at the closest place to heaven on earth—Camp Boggy Creek. The opportunity to work at Boggy taught me countless life lessons that have forever changed my life. I will continue to be my brother’s keeper, to live the dream, and to leave everything I have in everything I do because to give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift. —Evan Ernst, Florida State ’09

Association of Hole in the Wall Camps Changes Name The Association of Hole in the Wall Camps announced a name change and new brand at its 2012 gala in New York City. The organization is now SeriousFun Children’s Network. All camps will retain their names and logos (including the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Conn.), but they will now be known as part of SeriousFun Children’s Network. “SeriousFun Children’s Network is making a global impact,” the organization said. “The new name—and logo—more broadly represents the network’s reach and the significant growth it has experienced over the past two decades.” The name change will not affect Phi Kappa Tau’s relationship with the organization. We hope that undergraduates and alumni alike will be reinvigorated by the new name and brand and will be inspired to volunteer and work with the camps in a greater capacity than ever before.

It was an incredible opportunity to brain storm and problem solve with presidents from more than 50 chapters, as well as members of the national office.

In the past, all parents, corporations and non-member supporters of the Foundation were listed as Phriends of Phi Tau. Under the leadership of Chairwoman Sohor, the Fraternity and Foundation is realigning the mission of the program. Moving forward, the distinction of a Phriend of Phi Tau will be granted to all non-members that support the Foundation through a donation and volunteers who give of their time.

How to Include Phi Kappa Tau in Your Estate Plans Phi Tau brothers from all walks of life, with estates ranging from modest to complex, have shared a common bond through the years: their abiding interest in assuring the lasting fiscal strength of their Fraternity. Through their determination to act on that interest, they establish a legacy of support, most commonly by including a charitable bequest in their will or other estate planning document. A bequest to Phi Kappa Tau may be made through a will or living trust in the form of cash, securities, real estate, or other property. You should specify that the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation is to receive a certain amount or percentage of your estate or particular assets, or the remainder of your estate after providing for heirs. Please contact us if we can assist you and your attorney or financial advisor in establishing a bequest for the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation. To learn more, visit

“As temporary stewards of this great Fraternity, we have an obligation to leave a Phi Kappa Tau even stronger and better than the one we inherited. Each gift in honor or memory of a brother who mentored me—men like John Green or the late Rick Hamilton—is a humbling reminder of all they did to enrich my life. While I can never repay that debt, I hope my own contributions might have a similarly impactful result on current and future brothers.” —Michael Dovilla, Baldwin-Wallace ’94
