Delta Psi Theta Financial Aid Fund

From Bobby Lussier

Delta Psi Theta is establishing a fund to subsidize dues for members demonstrating financial need. We hope to eventually raise enough to make this fund self-sustaining. Keep in mind that this fundraiser is confidential!

More Info

The Hall is a space fundamentally designed for well-rounded discourse, bringing a variety of different voices to the table to navigate the literary questions that most interest us. These discussions, which lie at the core of the Hall's purpose, are incomplete if we are unable to welcome all perspectives to the Hall, including those which are financially limited. To ensure that no sibling is ever forced to drop their membership because of their financial position, the officer corps of Theta '17 is launching a financial aid fund to subsidize dues for a handful of members each year. Read on to learn more about our plan for the fund.

How will we decide who benefits from the fund?

Currently, we have at least 5 members expressing financial need, and that number may grow as we welcome the incoming sophomore class this fall. We're working with a couple of alums to create an application process, which will include a confidential interview with an alum to determine a member's eligibility. Partnership with alumni is crucial for this component, as we aim to avoid the discomfort of discussing financial circumstances with a peer. 

Why $5,000?

Our fundraising goal for this inaugural drive is to raise $5,000. Half of this would be used to meet the estimated current need for this year and last year. The other half would be the start of a small financial aid endowment, co-managed by the undergraduate leadership and alumni leadership, which we hope to grow via low-risk investment into a self-replenishing source of financial aid revenue.

What does the Hall do nowadays?

Good question! Throughout this fundraiser, we'll be (privately) sharing a few creative and literary offerings from current and recent members to give you a glimpse into the Hall's current form. Stay tuned to this campaign page as well as the Facebook Alumni Group and the Google Group (email Shun if you have not been added yet) for these snapshots of the Hall's recent activity.

Can I share this fundraiser publicly on social media?

No – we're still a secret organization. This fundraising campaign is only to be distributed among Delta Psi alumni. Do not share this page with anyone outside of the Hall.

How can I get more involved in managing this fund?

Email Shun Yamaya and Bobby Lussier for more information.
