30 Nov LFE Foundation Partnership
Investing in LFE members and the communities they serve
The Board of Directors of Lambda Phi Epsilon International Fraternity, Inc. announces a formal partnership with the Lambda Phi Epsilon Foundation, enhancing mutual support to the fraternal mission of guiding men on a lifelong discovery of authenticity and personal growth from active life through alumni life.
The Lambda Phi Epsilon (LFE) Foundation is a 501(c)(3) entity incorporated in Indianapolis, Indiana on May 19th, 2021. Led by a separate Board of Trustees, forming a new legal entity built upon past work initiated by past International Board officers to steward a modern direction for raising capital. The LFE Foundation promotes the educational interests of Lambda Phi Epsilon active members and young alumni by bestowing merit and need-based scholarships, providing ongoing professional development programming, and giving back to charitable causes selected by its donors.
“We envision the Foundation taking an active role in cultivating the alumni experience of what Lambdas have achieved and uplifting future brothers to reach new heights,” said LFE Foundation Board of Trustees President Victor Em. “We are in the support role as alumni, and it’s time for us to help the next generation of active members champion their moments in academia, service, and brotherhood.”
Effective immediately, the LFE International Board will transfer ownership of fraternity scholarships to the LFE Foundation, making alumni giving tax-deductible. Moving forward, the LFE Foundation will also own the LFE Magazine to engage and reconnect alumni through shared stories of philanthropic impact. The LFE Foundation will have an institutionalized presence at standing LFE International events (e.g., LFE Convention) and vice versa.
“Building off the momentum gathered from our LFE Month of Service, our newest partnership with the LFE Foundation marks a milestone in the maturity of our alumni base in the meaningful ways alumni and friends of the fraternity donate their time, talent, and treasure,” said LFE Board of Directors President Bryan Dosono. “Advancing alumni engagement through charitable platforms remains a key priority of our strategic plan, and we are eager to see how this new entity expands our membership’s ability to invest and capacity to give.”
