Business Council

The TKE Educational Foundation Business Council is comprised of volunteers who work to further the Foundation’s efforts to build Better Men for a Better World. Business Council members support the Board of Directors activities, Foundation-sponsored programs, and annual fundraising campaigns.

Members of the TEF Business Council pledge $15,000, committing to donate $3,000 a year or $250 per month to further our efforts to build Better Men for a Better World. Business Council members receive a lapel pin and are listed in the Foundation’s Annual Report; those in the Business Council are also welcome to attend meetings of the TKE Educational Foundation Board of Directors. They are also subscribed to the TEF Insider, the Foundation’s e-newsletter featuring information about upcoming programs and updates on annual fundraising campaigns.

Ambassadors

The criteria for becoming a Foundation Ambassador are

  • an enthusiasm for TKE and belief in the mission of the TKE Educational Foundation,
  • a desire to communicate with other members ways of engagement and opportunities for support,
  • are willing to give back so that others can benefit from the efforts of the Foundation.

Membership as a Foundation Ambassador is open to anyone who chooses to play a role in advancing the Foundation and willingly shares their treasure to support its efforts. For more information about how to become a Foundation Ambassador, contact the TKE Educational Foundation.

The Foundation Ambassadors donate $1000 a year or $83.33 per month for five years, resulting in a generous gift of $5,000 for quality leadership and scholarship programs for our undergraduate Fraters. Members receive a lapel pin and are subscribed to the TEF Insider, an e-newsletter with more information about our upcoming programs and annual fundraising campaigns.

Knights of Strength

Knights of Strength is a giving club to encourage monthly donations to the Foundation. To join, simply make a commitment to give an equal amount each month – of $10 or more – for one year. By doing so, you will make a significant impact on the future of our Fraternity.
