Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund Announces Historic New Initiatives
Since inception, 96 years ago, the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund has proudly supported the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
Nearly $5,000,000 has been awarded to thousands of Kappa Sigma undergraduate brothers- the most by any college fraternity foundation in the world.
Kappa Sigma International Headquarters is the finest college fraternal headquarters in the world. Our home preserves Kappa Sigma’s proud heritage and is visited by thousands of brothers annually who seek to learn more about their own chapter history.
As we approach Kappa Sigma’s 150th Sesquicentennial Anniversary in 2019, I am pleased to share several historic initiatives that will increase overall undergraduate support and strengthen the partnership between local chapters and Kappa Sigma…
Chapter Scholarship Fund
A scholarship fund has been established for each Kappa Sigma chapter for the exclusive benefit of their undergraduates. For the first time ever, the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund will allocate 50% of Alumni Dues, new Jackson’s Men, and other designated gifts directly to the chapter scholarship fund of the donating brother. Direct donations are also encouraged.
Brothers will receive a personalized Kappa Sigma Alumni Card that will provide special benefits. Annual dues are $50 ($25 for first five years of alumni status), but more can be donated. Again, 50% will be allocated to Chapter Scholarship Funds.

Named Scholarship-Leadership Award
Several new named Scholarship-Leadership Award opportunities are now available at different donation levels and award amounts.
Kappa Sigma Legacy Wall
A wall located prominently at Kappa Sigma International Headquarters will honor legacies, outstanding brothers at the chapter level and those who have joined the chapter celestial.
We are also excited to welcome Drew Fancher (Lambda, University of Tennessee) and Casey Vanderpool (Kappa-Alpha, UNLV) who will serve as Regional Development Directors for the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund. Their job is to work directly with local alumni for the purpose of growing their Chapter Scholarship Fund.
Brothers Fancher and Vanderpool are available to answer any questions you may have about these new initiatives or general questions about the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund.
On behalf of the Endowment Fund Trustees, I thank you for your devotion to the Order and steadfast support in favor of our undergraduate brothers. The commitment we make today will endure a vibrant Kappa Sigma for generations to come.
