Endowments

An endowment is an agreement between a donor and Gamma Phi Beta to advance the Sorority and enrich member experiences. These customizable agreements allow you to make a gift that will impact members generation from now. When you create an endowed fund, your initial gift is invested. Once it begins generating interest, the Foundation distributes the earnings as you directed in your agreement. Below are the existing non-scholarship endowments given to Gamma Phi Beta.
