In 2015-16, we raised $874,929 in Annual Giving!
When most members think of Phi Mu Foundation, they often think of one of our many Annual Fund programs. Whether it is the Phonathon or the popular M3 Campaign, our members enjoy rallying around these fundraisers because they know the money raised is helping women just like them. Dollars raised for the Annual Fund are unrestricted funds, which support Foundation operations, and allow for our leadership to invest in innovative programming that will keep Phi Mu on the cutting edge. The Annual Fund is what fuels the Foundation for future growth.
The 2016 Phi Mu Foundation Phonathon was hosted from January 29-February 1 by the Rho Iota Chapter at the University of Kentucky. The Phonathon is our longest-running Annual Fund campaign, and is an inspiring weekend of connecting our collegiate and alumnae sisters from across the country. In just three days, the women of Rho Iota reached 600 alumnae, and raised more than $34,000 in unrestricted funds for Phi Mu Foundation.
One of the most spirited Annual Fund initiatives takes place during the month of March, when we show gratitude to our three Founders with the M3 Campaign. The 2016 M3 Campaign not only raised a record-breaking $354,128 for our Annual Fund, but we also surpassed $1 million in cumulative giving since the campaign’s inception. More than 660 alumnae contributed to the campaign this year, along with 127 collegiate chapters participating at 100 percent – meaning that every active member of their chapter made a gift of at least $18.52 to Phi Mu Foundation during the month of March.
Our chapters contributing the most to the M3 Campaign in 2016 were the Chicago West Suburban Alumnae Chapter, raising more than $1,600, and for the second year in a row, the Alpha Delta Chapter at the University of Mississippi, contributing more than $16,000.
