Chapter History

The Zeta Pi Chapter is the fourth chapter in the state of Arizona and was installed in the spring of 2016 and chartered in the spring of 2018. In the past few semesters, the chapter recruited strong associate members that have helped the chapter grow and be a chapter filled with genuine, respectable leaders. This chapter id the youngest active IFC chapter on campus and in 2018 won the Edward H. McCune Most Distinguished Chapter for a midsized IFC, just two months after receiving their charter. The men are very proud of recently graduated brother Blair Kessler, former Vice President and Director of Finance and Operations, for being inducted into the Noble Man Hall of Fame! With the help of former presidents AJ Wurtz, Elliot Beck, and Luke Hardy, the young chapter has grown significantly and is constantly improving in every facet.

Chapter Funds

A Chapter Fund is a restricted account from the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation. In this case, the restriction is that the funds and earnings on the investment of the funds may be used only for a particular chapter, meaning that if you donate to your chapter’s fund, it may only be used for your chapter.

Chapter Funds may be used to:

  • Award scholarships based on academic and leadership criteria
  • Technology grants for purchase and upgrade of chapter computer technology
  • Educational facility grants to the selected chapter
  • Leadership education grants for participation in institutes, seminars, and conventions.

The Foundation manages the fund. This management includes fund accounting, investing, and preparing required reports for the Internal Revenue Service. The policy of the Foundation Board of Trustees is to involve chapter alumni association leaders in the creation of criteria, formation of program priorities and selection of grant recipients.
