On April 23rd, beginning at 12:00am (EST), alumni, friends, and collegiate members will be able to give using the link below. The link will not go "live" until 12:00am, so that we may ensure all of the gifts we receive for the Weekend of Giving, count toward our Weekend of Giving Goals!
The giving form is super simple and should take no more than a few moments to complete! After you give, we encourage you to connect with brothers from your chapter, and encourage them to give as well. Every gift counts, no matter the size, toward helping us celebrate our past and create our future!
Clarence Dexter Peirce Weekend of Giving
April 23 - 25, 2021 | ALL THREE DAYS
Clarence Dexter Pierce Weekend of Giving is Phi Mu Delta National Fraternity's third annual national giving period. Named after the Father of Phi Mu Delta, Founder Clarence Dexter Peirce (Nu Gamma 1918), brothers from around the world will gather virtually and in person, to give to the Educational Foundation, while also celebrating Founder Pierce's 125rd birthday!
Founder Clarence Dexter Peirce would have been 125 years old on April 23, 2021, our Day of Giving! In celebration of the Father of Phi Mu Delta's birthday, we challenge you to give $125.00! Join us in wishing Founder Peirce a very happy birthday from the brothers of his fraternity!
What is the Weekend of giving?
The Clarence Dexter Pierce Weekend of Giving is Phi Mu Delta's biggest single fundraiser. The 72-hour campaign is an effort to engage collegiate members, alumni, and friends, to make gifts to the Foundation. Any size gifts are welcome.
How do I participate in the weekend of giving?
It's super easy! All you have to do is access the Weekend of Giving platform, fill out a few questions, enter your gift, and click submit. The whole process will take no more than a couple of minutes. And if you want to give back in multiple way, we ask that you reach out to the brothers you are closest to, and remind them to make a gift!
Gifts made to the Phi Mu Delta Educational Foundation directly benefit collegiate members and chapters, allowing the fraternity to provide top-notch educational programming and leadership development opportunities, chapter support, and a plethora of other resources. If you make a gift, we make a promise: we will be good stewards of the gifts you make and use them to advance the Fraternity and Foundation's missions. Giving to the Foundation allows use to celebrate our past while also creating our future, and giving encourages others to do the same.
Do My gifts on day of giving count toward my total annual giving?
Yes! Any gifts made this Weekend are counted toward your year-end giving. All gifts are records on the donor's account, and proper credit will be given to the donor at the end of the year.
Is my gift Tax DEDUCTIBLE?
Yes. At the beginning of each January, our Foundation staff and volunteers pull the year's giving records and put together tax letters, which are mailed to your last known address. These tax letters include the Foundation's EIN# (IRS assigned identifier), and your total giving. You will need both of those information points during tax season, to recieve a deduction. Please make sure that if you move during the year or after giving a gift, that you email the National Office and let them know so we can send you letter to the correct address.
Will I receive a receipt?
Yes. As our staff and volunteers comb through gifts and process the gifts made on the Weekend of Giving, you will receive an email confirmation of your gift for your records. However, this is not an official IRS receipt- those will be mailed mid January.
If I send a gift in the mail, will it count toward the Day of Giving?
Yes. Gifts postmarked by April 26th and sent to the National Office will be counted toward our Weekend of Giving. The address to our National Office is below: Phi Mu Delta Educational Foundation 216 Haddon Avenue Suite 602 Haddon Township, NJ. 08108
Still have questions?
If you still have questions about Day of Giving or making a gift to the Educational Foundation, please feel free to email us at email@example.com, or contact our Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
"I give because... I made a lifelong commitment to our Fraternity. I give because I believe in leading by example, and my hope is that my generosity will spark and install generosity in other Brothers as well." - Rich Winter, Mu Zeta '12, National Member-at-Large
