Philanthropy Chapter Contribution Form and Grant Application

The Gamma Phi Beta Foundation is pleased to support the fundraising efforts of our collegiate and alumnae chapters and be part of the Building Strong Girls movement!Since 1959, we have given more than $2.5 million to local organizations, including our partners Camp Fire, Girl Guides of Canada and Girls on the Run. Chapters partnering with the Foundation through their philanthropic efforts must submit a Philanthropy Chapter Contribution Form, postmarked no later than May 15 to be included in the 2013‐2014 philanthropic giving year.

 

The Foundation has provided more than $500,000 in total grants since 1999 to Camp Fire, Girl Guides of Canada and local camps for children. The philanthropy grants awarded by the Foundation are not automatically a 100% match, but rather enhance the amount raised by the chapters. The monies to fund the grants come from donations and interest earned from endowments to support Gamma Phi Beta's philanthropic focus. In 2013, the Foundation was able to supplement 30 percent of what chapters raised. Gamma Phi Beta chapters raising funds for local camps are encouraged to complete the Philanthropy Grant Application each year by May 15.
