Foundation Establishes Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Fund

Last week, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to designate $25,000 toward establishing a fund to support Phi Mu’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.

“After discussions with the Fraternity, we knew there was an immediate need to help fund diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives for Phi Mu members in the upcoming academic year,” said Foundation President Pamela Gaines, Epsilon Alpha.  “In addition to the short-term funding that we’ll be able to provide to the Fraternity through our Caring Carnations program this summer, establishing this fund will allow for an ongoing opportunity for donors to support this important effort.”

You can help support the Fraternity’s diversity, equity and inclusion work through one of two Phi Mu Foundation contribution opportunities below:

Caring Carnations – by purchasing ‘virtual’ Caring Carnations – the Golden Quatrefoil ($10) and/or the Radiant Rose ($5) – to send to members and friends now through July 17.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Fund – beginning today, you can make a gift directly to this new fund by visiting the and select ‘Established Funds’.

“On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we’d like to encourage Phi Mu members and friends to rally behind this cause and spread joy through sending Caring Carnations or make a gift directly to the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Fund,” said Gaines. “We are much more powerful together and helping to fund this work will ensure that Phi Mu is a stronger, more inclusive organization.”
