Chapter Support Funds

To better serve our chapters and their needs, the Lambda Chi Alpha Educational Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation developed the Chapter Support Funds Program.

This program provides chapters with financial assistance for education-related needs such as scholarships, registration fees, leadership training and chapter house operating costs. It also provides an opportunity for alumni to directly contribute tax-deductible funds to chapters and brothers.

Chapters may establish their own chapter support fund through the foundation. For more information about chapter support funds, please contact Dan Hartmann at: dhartmann@lambdachi.org.
