Do something SPECIAL for your chapter! Special Projects Funds provide a unique opportunity for alumni to donate and immediately benefit members of their chapter. Monies contributed can be applied to support members’ attendance at TKEsponsored educational programs, such as Regional Leadership Conference registration, or can assist with housing projects. There is no minimum balance to attain before the dollars can be used. Maintained by the TKE Educational Foundation, these funds are included in the endowment investment portfolio. Funds are managed by professional money managers and oversight is provided by the Foundation Board of Directors Investment Committee. An annual administrative fee is charged for each fund. Not only does the Foundation have a scholarship fund for every chapter in TKE Nation, it also has SPECIAL PROJECTS accounts, which Fraters are using to help their chapters in many ways. The nice part about contributing to the Foundation to help your chapter is that your dollars are tax advantaged, as the TKE Educational Foundation is a 501(c)3. As a result, many Fraters benefit from a tax deduction within the limits of the law and the dollars directly benefit the chapter as intended. The Foundation holds special projects funds even when the chapter closes so that when it is reopened, the funds are there to help establish a new chapter. One recent example was when Frater Charles R. Walgreen, Jr. left a bequest in 2010 —part of which was to benefit his chapter. The Foundation took those funds, invested them and, now that Upsilon has reopened at the University of Michigan, the necessary support is there to provide scholarships and send chapter members to leadership conferences or help with housing. While most bequests are unrestricted, some are restricted for the chapter’s benefit and are held and maintained indefinitely for that specific purpose. Frater Walgreen set a good example by leaving 75 percent of his bequest to the Foundation and 25 percent to the chapter. His money helped the Foundation recover from very difficult financial circumstances during the recession of 2008 – 2012 and also remains as a lasting legacy for his chapter.
