Chapter Endowment Funds
There are lots of ways to use your Chapter Endowment Funds even though Brothers are not on campus. Please contact a Foundation Staff member at TEF@Triangle.org if you want to set up a call to strategize how to use it for the rest of the year. Remember grant applications are due by June 1, 2020 and funds must be spent this school year.
Alumni groups with housing who are in financial difficulty should contact Mike Fouts (email@example.com) to ask about short-term loans or having TBHC consider assuming ownership/management.
Also, nonprofits are included in the several bills from Congress providing help for small businesses. The Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program may be a solution to your challenges. Learn more at https://www.sba.gov/page/coronavirus-covid-19-small-business-guidance-loan-resources
