What is Pi Kappa Phi Day of Giving?

The Pi Kappa Phi Foundation hosts an annual Day of Giving on or near our Founders’ Day. The Pi Kappa Phi Day of Giving celebrates the history of the Fraternity, while supporting future generations of brothers.

Pi Kappa Phi Day of Giving will take place on December 8, 2023, with a goal of raising $150,000. This annual opportunity allows brothers to come together to celebrate Pi Kappa Phi’s impact, share their stories of why they support the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation and help ensure a positive experience for current and future undergraduate and alumni members of the Fraternity.

In 2023, we celebrate 119 years of Pi Kappa Phi. One hundred and nineteen years of brothers believing in the mission of our founders, giving back to the organization and believing in the principles of common loyalty and lifelong commitment. “I invest. I believe.” is the theme of our 2023 Day of Giving. We hope you will make an investment in Pi Kappa Phi because you believe in the power of our brotherhood.

When is Pi Kappa Phi Day of Giving?

Pi Kappa Phi Day of Giving occurs on or near Founders’ Day. In 2023, Day of Giving will take place on Friday, December 8. 


Your belief in, and your generosity to Pi Kappa Phi are vital to the success of the Fraternity.  

Your investment in Pi Kappa Phi will support: 

  • The Shared Undergraduate Experience: Leadership and educational programs like Pi Kapp College for Chapter Officers and the Warden’s Institute for Common Loyalty ensure that each student has the same Pi Kappa Phi experience, regardless of his chapter. Every warden was required to attend our newly created Institute and learned the skills necessary to deliver a first-class associate member program for their respective chapters. Our goal is for every Pi Kapp associate member to experience a journey that creates a lifetime affinity for the organization and for their chapter.  
  • Growth: Growth is the lifeblood of the Fraternity. Increased membership provides new networks, new financial capabilities and new opportunities. Our reimagined leadership consultant model provides nine dedicated staff members who support our chapters’ recruitment efforts.
      • Growth is also personal growth, growth in resources and growth in the strength of our brotherhood. 
  • Student and Chapter Grants: The Pi Kappa Phi Foundation provides resources to underwrite the expense to our chapters to attend programs like Pi Kapp College for Chapter Officers and Supreme Chapter. We also award academic scholarships to deserving students through a variety of scholarship programs. 
      • Our spring scholarship cycle awarded more than $37,000 to 33 students. The fall cycle is currently in progress. Results will be available in mid-November. 


Day of Giving gifts can be made on our Day of Giving platform, which will be live closer to December 8. Check back for access to the platform.  

Or, you can make a gift to the Pi Kappa Phi Foundation at any time.


Day of Giving Challenges and Activities

Our chapter competitions have been reworked this year! We will have three tiers based on the size of the alumni base, with each tier having winners for the most money raised and the highest number of donors giving at least $19.04.

New this year! EVERY chapter that donates $5,000 or more unrestricted dollars with at least 25 donors giving $19.04+ will receive a credit for their 2024 Supreme Chapter installment - which will save chapters over $1,000 in their annual expenses.

Stay tuned for more information on giving challenges and other new competitions.


Why does Day of Giving occur on Founders’ Day?
Founders’ Day is a natural fit for Pi Kappa Phi’s Day of Giving. It is an important date in our brotherhood’s history and is a day for our brothers and friends to give back. 

Who can contribute?
Anyone! To be eligible for competition prizes, be sure to pick your favorite chapter at the time of your donation. You do not need to be a member of a chapter to choose it when you donate. Donations less than $19.04 will not qualify for the donor count category.

Can chapters make donations through OmegaFi?

No. If an undergraduate chapter, alumni chapter or alumni association wishes to make a donation, we ask them to donate through our Day of Giving link. 

How can I support/promote the Pi Kappa Phi Day of Giving? 
To support our Day of Giving with a gift, please visit our Day of Giving donation page 

Share our posts on social media or post them to specific Pi Kappa Phi groups you belong to. 

Make a gift in honor of a brother who made an impact on you. These tributes will be shared in the 2024 annual report edition of the Star & Lamp! 

You can also sign up to be a chapter captain and receive a Pi Kappa Phi Day of Giving toolkit to ensure your chapter has a successful day and a chance to win our chapter competitions. If you are interested in learning more about being a chapter captain, please contact Becky Smith. 

Are there any incentives for giving?
Yes. We will have some special Pi Kappa Phi branded items for donors giving at least $19.04. 

I gave already this year; will that count towards the Day of Giving?
Gifts given through our specific campaign link will count toward Day of Giving. If you prefer to give by check, you may do so, but checks must be received by December 8 with a specific request to count the gift in our Day of Giving campaign. Don’t forget to include a chapter if you want to participate in the competitions!  

Is my gift tax deductible?
The Pi Kappa Phi Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all gifts made to it are tax deductible. 

Will I receive a receipt?
Yes. You will receive an email receipt at the address provided at the time of donation. 

Can I take advantage of my employer’s matching gift program?
Yes. Follow your employer’s process as you would for any other charitable donation. 

Can I make a gift to my chapter’s Chapter Investment Fund?
We encourage unrestricted giving during our Day of Giving campaign, but if you prefer to make a gift to a Chapter Investment Fund or other restricted fund, please note this on your donation. If you do not, the donation will be allocated to our unrestricted Leadership Fund. Unfortunately, donations cannot be recoded after the conclusion of Day of Giving.
