About Us

The Delta Chi Educational Foundation was incorporated in 1954 as a 501(c)(3), a non-profit educational foundation that can accept tax deductible donations for the benefit of young men in the fraternity. We seek to challenge our brotherhood to a life-long commitment to the fraternal ideals and values, building personal enrichment for posterity.

New Founders at the 2016 Convention
The Foundation strives to offer opportunities for a variety of donor supported programs and activities. We are proud that our educational resources and programs for the chapters and colonies have grown. This is because of our loyal donors supporting the mission and vision.
We hope you will join us in supporting the Foundation’s educational efforts. By donating to the programs and scholarships of the Foundation, you will have the satisfaction of making a positive impact on the future leaders of tomorrow.
