Updates to the M3 Campaign

We’re excited to announce a few updates to the annual M3 Campaign, based on some great feedback we’ve collected from chapter philanthropy chairs.

First, the M3 Campaign has received a fresh, new look with an updated logo that features our tagline – Sisters Helping Sisters. Phi Mu Foundation is the only charity in the world that operates exclusively to support Phi Mu women and we want to make sure that everyone who participates in the campaign knows that their contributions support our sisterhood!

Next, we’ve expanded the campaign so that anything that you fundraise for Phi Mu Foundation from now until March 2023 will count toward your M3 Campaign total.  Your goal will remain the same as it has been in the past – to fundraise the equivalent of $18.52 per member in your chapter. If you need fundraising ideas – small or large – check out the M3 Campaign Toolkit on our website.

Lastly, we will be launching a new online fundraising platform at the end of this month that will make crowdfunding much easier! We’ll send chapter philanthropy chairs another email when that launches and we’ll have a webinar to show more about how chapters can leverage this platform to increase fundraising for Sisters Helping Sisters. 

Thank you for your incredible support of Phi Mu Foundation and Sisters Helping Sisters. Your contributions make a difference to Phi Mu women!

If you have any questions about the changes to the M3 Campaign or want to talk about fundraising ideas, please contact Leinin Schuerr at lschuerr@phimu.org.
