The Circle of Giving grant is an opportunity for your chapter of Pi Kappa Phi to financially impact a local organization serving people with disabilities with whom your chapter visits regularly throughout the year.

To be eligible for a Circle of Giving grant, a chapter must fundraise at least $50/per man or $5,000 during the 2017 calendar year and have an active volunteer relationship with a local organization that serves people with disabilities.

Circle of Giving grants will be awarded based on a chapter's overall involvement with The Ability Experience including, but not limited to, chapter fundraising total, number of members participating in a national Ability Experience event and level of interaction with your local partner organization.

*Late applications will not be accepted.

Chapters will be notified in March whether or not they have been awarded a Circle of Giving grant. If awarded, you will also be notified of the amount that has been awarded to your local partner organization. Grants will be awarded up to 25% of the chapter's fundraising total and not all chapters are guaranteed to receive a grant.
