Among the Sigma Chi Foundation’s overarching goals is ensuring that every undergraduate brother every year is positively impacted by values-based leadership training and support. 

Thanks to the support of the Foundation, and the generosity of our donors, which has funded the development of world-class leadership programming for our members over the last two decades, Sigma Chi has set the standard within the Greek-letter world largely thanks to the work of the Sigma Chi Leadership Institute (SCLI). 

In July 2022, following more than five years of work and a groundbreaking financial commitment from generous donors, SCLI learned it had become the first Greek-affiliated organization to achieve institutional accreditation by an organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Now, through Sigma Chi’s Transformational Leader program, Sigma Chi members receive a leadership development experience that prepares them to demonstrate relevant skills and competencies as undergraduate members and as new members of the workforce in their chosen field.

The courses within the Transformational Leader program are delivered through long-supported delivery vehicles such as Sigma Chi Online or facilitated by instructors at the Krach Transformational Leaders Workshop, Horizons Huntsman Leadership Summit, regional province conferences or chapter-based retreats.

More than 980 undergraduate brothers earned SCLI leadership certificates or micro-certificates during the 2021 to 2022 fiscal year, and, as of October 2022, Sigma Chi was well on track to surpass that number in the first half of the 2022 to 2023 academic year alone!

Sigma Chi has made a difference in the lives of over 300,000 brothers and these brothers want to give back. More importantly they want to give back to where they lived Sigma Chi, their own chapter. The Thomas Cowan Bell Chapter Challenge provides an excellent opportunity to make this happen and provides your chapter with enhanced benefits from the Foundation.

Your unrestricted, and tax-deductible, gift to the Sigma Chi Foundation will support designated academic scholarships and additional Transformational Leader program benefits for members of your chapter. These cutting-edge, values-based opportunities help change the lives of undergraduates at your chapter, bringing them to their full potential in college and life.

Our chapters need strong, values-based leaders to grow stronger. Engage with your Sigma Chi Foundation today and cultivate tomorrow’s leaders!
