Pi Kappa Phi reaches $1 million goal

But TCU’s Eta Chi Chapter has raised more than $1 million for the charity since its founding in 1998.

TCU’s Pi Kappa Phi 2016 Philanthropy Chairman, Calvin Layman, learned of the accomplishment during Supreme Chapter, where chapters of Pi Kapp from across the country meet together and receive awards.

But the men in the chapter are not the only ones inspired by this achievement.

“To see that we were the ones that did that was pretty cool,” said Layman.

The chapter hosts a variety of fundraising events, particularly during The Ability Experience Week, ending with their “Pi Kapp Push” event.

“It’s really just our thing and our way to give back,” said Pi Kapp President Morris Herman.

He said it’s not just thanks to the donors that the chapter reached the $1 million benchmark.

“It’s really a testament to the guys that started our fraternity,” he said. “Everybody who’s come before us really led us to the million dollars and hopefully the next million.”

Layman said the accomplishment gave more than just pride to the chapter.

“Everyone was just really excited, I think, and almost motivating,” Layman said. “We’ve hit a million – what more can we do?”
