Psi Beta Sigma Alumni Chapter
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. has a very illustrious history. Our fraternity was founded on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C. on January 9, 1914. Our motto is “Culture for Service, Service for Humanity.” As a fraternity, we are proud of hour history of being of a service to the communities that we live in, as well as abroad. Some of our National initiatives are Project VOTE, Sigma’s Against Teenage Pregnancy, and Project S.E.E.D. (Sigma Economic Empowerment Development). We have also partnered with the American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
As a local chapter, we are very engaged with our local community. We host a variety of programs that educate on various topics such as safe sex, financial responsibility, as well as political awareness. However, our passion is to provide a more hands on approach, which is why we have dedicated countless weekends participating in and hosting a vast array of community service based activities. As a non-profit organization, we look for creative ways to financially support these initiatives. Here we come to the purpose of this letter. We would like to reach out to your company/organization asking support in our effort by donating supplies and/or potential raffle items for the golf tournament to ensure a successful event.
The Psi Beta Sigma Chapter, located in Austin, TX, has established the Psi Beta Sigma Benevolent Fund, a registered 501(c) 3 in the State of Texas. The sole purpose of this fund is to provide college scholarships to at-risk youth in the Central Texas Area. Our organization feels that it is important to support our youth whom are trying to better themselves by seeking higher education. To ensure that your organization receives a return on your investment, we will also be providing a mentor to the scholarship recipients to assist them in making the transition to a responsible college freshman and beyond. As you can see, your contribution will make a significant impact on the youth in our communities.
In our 1st annual Golf Tournament in 2011, we where able to raise $3,000 in scholarship money with an award of $1,000 for our fist three recipients. In the 2012 Tournament, we where able raise $5,000 and will be awarding students this summer in preparation of their first year in college. We have challenged ourselves to grow our scholarship awards even more this year and with your help, we can make this possible.
On behalf of the Psi Beta Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. I would like to thank you for your support.
