Dear Sponsors and Friends,

The mission of the Iota Phi Foundation is to improve the quality of life of people in the City of Pittsburgh, focusing on the Homewood and Larimar communities in particular. Our emphasis over the past 40 years has been to help families during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and to provide scholarships for college education. Our partners in these endeavors have included NEED, UPMC, GIANT EAGLE, KBK, Highmark and many others. For the next three years, we would like to increase our outreach significantly by implementing a major capital campaign to raise $225,000. The money would be allocated as follows: $150,000 for the renovation of our community center; $20,000 to increase the number of student scholarships from 5 to 10 students per year; $25,000 to establish a new Scholarship Endowment Fund; and $30,000 to increase the number of participants in our present programs to support the youth and families in our local communities. To make our capital campaign successful, we are soliciting funds from corporations, foundations and other sources.

Like the Iota Phi Foundation, we know our sponsors desire to give back to local communities in a variety of ways. In that regard, we would appreciate your support of our upcoming capital campaign.

Below are the details concerning our capital campaign sponsorship levels:

  • $50,000 - Gold Medal: Banner with your name and logo on our website and printed brochure. Name as presenting sponsor on a major event (Achievement Awards Dinner, Talent Hunt, Golf Outing, Christmas or Thanksgiving Drives)

  • $25,000 - Purple Medal: Banner with your name and logo on our website and printed brochure. Co-sponsorship of a major Iota Phi Foundation event

  • $10,000 - Bronze Medal: Acknowledgment on printed materials of the Iota Phi Foundation
Members of the Iota Phi Foundation have pledged $30,000 towards our goal of $225,000.

If you would like to donate to our capital campaign or sponsor any of our events, please contact me or click the “Donate” tab above. Thank you for your consideration in advance. We are looking forward to even greater success in the future.

Yours in service,

Rodney B. Jones, Sr- Chairman
