Development Advisory Council

If you are a Phi Mu member working in fundraising, development or advancement – we’re looking for interested professionals to join the Phi Mu Foundation Development Advisory Council. Members of the Development Advisory Council will give advice on fundraising strategy and ideas, as well as share industry best practices. The Council would meet one or two times annually to share ideas, feedback and offer a peek behind the curtain with the Foundation’s fundraising efforts. It will also provide an opportunity for development professionals to expand their networks and meet and learn from other Phi Mus in the industry. The first meeting will be Wednesday, February 22 at 12:00 p.m. ET via Zoom.

If you’re interested in serving on the Development Advisory Council, please send an email with your resume to Executive Director Kristin Tofanelli at ktofanelli@phimu.org.

Meet Phi Mu Foundation Scholarship Recipient Erin Hediger, Chi

The first Phi Mu Foundation Scholarship I received – the St. Louis/Elizabeth Millman Alumnae Educational Fund Scholarship – was when I was an undergraduate student at the University of Missouri. I was awarded the scholarship during my sophomore year after I had fought and beat cancer. My chapter had been there for me during the most difficult part of my life, and I was honored to receive even more support through Phi Mu with a scholarship. Likewise, after continuing my studies amid chemotherapy and radiation treatments, receiving a scholarship showed me all the hard work was worth it.

After having graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences, I am now pursuing a Master’s Degree in Genetic Counseling at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences to start a career as a Genetic Counselor. For my graduate studies, I was awarded a second Phi Mu Foundation Scholarship – the Dorothy Scott Doty Fund Scholarship. This experience has helped me realize how the benefits of being a Phi Mu are not restricted to collegians, but extend to alumnae, too. I know that during my graduate program and beyond, Phi Mu will always be there for me. After graduation, I hope to start a job in a hospital working with cancer patients and their families.

Phi Mu Foundation’s commitment to our sorority and helping members pursue their educational endeavors is admirable, and your contributions really do make a difference in members’ lives. Phi Mu Foundation Scholarships help take the financial burden off women pursuing their college and graduate degrees. They help inspire and encourage women to go after their dreams and set goals. But most of all, these scholarships remind members how connected we are, regardless of age, distance, or chapter. Being a recipient of these scholarships, I am reminded of how true and powerful the words Love in Our Bond really are.

Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do in supporting Phi Mu Foundation.
