I’m pleased to share with you that today we are launching our first-ever crowdfunding campaign to our entire membership in direct support of the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute. As Kleberg continues its ascent as the Fraternity’s flagship leadership development initiative, Phi Delta Theta has received much feedback about developing a campaign, and the necessary technology, to help our chapters send delegates.
We have listened, and the goal of this crowdfunding campaign is to give our alumni the opportunity to directly shape the success of their chapters by funding additional delegates for the 2018 Kleberg. Statistically, chapters that send more delegates to Kleberg perform better and keep their members safer. The Fraternity currently pays for four delegates per chapter to attend Kleberg.
Designated funds raised by chapter alumni through this campaign will help fund the educational experience of additional delegates. The cost of funding one additional delegate is $750, but the focus of the campaign will be on building participation by accumulating as many donors as possible at any level. All gifts are 100% tax deductible.
The campaign will run through April 30, and the crowdfunding strategy will capture the power of social media.

Here’s how you can help:
- Make a gift and direct it toward your chapter (or any chapter you choose).

We are extremely excited for this new campaign and its ability to deepen the impact of the Kleberg Emerging Leaders Institute on our undergraduates, individually and as a whole. We hope you are, too!
Yours in the Bond,
Senior Vice President of Advancement
