The Purpose of Sigma Chi

The fundamental purpose of the Sigma Chi fraternity is the cultivation, maintenance and accomplishment of the ideals of friendship, justice and learning within our membership.

The Sigma Chi Canadian Foundation was formed by Canadian Sigma Chi Alumni as a registered charitable foundation to provide a tax-effective way for Canadian Sigs to support the educational pursuits of all Canadian Active Chapters. Charitable tax receipts will be issued for donations, which will be used for qualifying educational purposes.

Our mission is to strengthen Sigma Chi in Canada. The Foundation exists as a vehicle for local Active Chapters, Alumni Chapters and/or House Corporations to raise tax-deductible funds for educational purposes – primarily for the benefit of Active Chapters and Active brothers. Direct, individual donations to either Endowment or Current Funds are encouraged and are tax-deductible.

Funding

Where donations are not designated to a particular fund by the donor, they will be allocated at the discretion of the directors – to either the General Fund, or to a chapter-specific Endowment or Current Fund.

Donations to all Funds will be invested in secure investment funds, with the annual income available to be distributed for qualified educational purposes.
