Phi Mu Foundation offers several ways to support Phi Mu sisters through tax-deductible gifts. Because of the generous support from Phi Mu alumnae, Phi Mu collegians and friends of Phi Mu, the Foundation reinvests more than $500,000 each year to the Fraternity through leadership grants, academic and emergency scholarships, member assistance, and preservation of Phi Mu’s rich history.
A number of unique giving opportunities are available to those who wish to support the Foundation and its mission. Through short-term and long-term planning, these tax-deductible gifts can be designated as unrestricted or restricted contributions. We invite you to consider the many opportunities available. Every gift made to Phi Mu Foundation makes a difference.
Below are several methods of giving to suit individual specific wishes and needs.
Monetary gifts are the most common contributions made to the Foundation. These unrestricted or restricted gifts can be made online by debit card or credit card through the secured donation page. Contributions can also be made via check (made payable to Phi Mu Foundation) and mailed to:
Phi Mu Foundation
400 Westpark Drive
Peachtree City, GA 30269
To make a gift to a specific campaign or appeal, visit the Give Now page for campaigns and appeals that are currently available.
The Foundation accepts gifts in the forms of securities, insurance, trusts and wills as methods of support. To learn more about these gifts, visit the Planned Giving page.
The gift of life insurance requires the Foundation to be named as owner and beneficiary of the policy. Either the donor can pay the premium and receive a tax deduction, or the Foundation can pay the premium. This option allows for steady giving over the course of time with long term benefits to the Foundation.
One of the easiest and most cost-efficient methods of increasing your contributions to the Foundation is through a matching gifts program with your employer. The size of the donations and ratios that employers are willing to match vary. Some offer a set ratio, while others set a maximum dollar amount. Ask about utilizing one of these programs to increase the impact of your gift to the Foundation or see a list of companies who offer gift matching programs.
Phi Mu members and friends of Phi Mus are encouraged to leave their Phi Mu legacy at National Headquarters by purchasing a personalized brick in the commemorative terrace. To purchase a brick, click Give Now and select the option to order a brick.
Sisters are encouraged to contribute to Phi Mu Foundation through gifts of Caring Carnations. These pink carnation appliqués are a great way to honor and recognize fellow sisters while supporting Phi Mu Foundation. Caring Carnations can be purchased year-round in preparation of special events or just to send to a sister to let her know you are thinking about her. A long-standing convention and Founders’ Day event tradition, sisters delight in opening their cards and wear their Caring Carnations proudly on their name badges.
