The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, Inc. was chartered in 1954 and in 1983 merged with the Crown Development Trust Fund, Inc. The mission of Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, Inc., through successful fund-raising by alumnae and collegians, is to fulfill the founding principles of Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity by providing, in compliance with IRS guidelines, support for programs that are educational, philanthropic and always responsive to the needs of a changing society, further enhancing Zeta Tau Alpha’s leadership position in the Greek community and its influence in the world.
The Foundation is a tax-exempt organization as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, Section 501(c)3. The fiscal year runs from August 1 to July 31. Donations are tax-deductible. The Foundation, in accordance with the Articles of Incorporation and pursuant to the IRS code, provides support for scholastic, educational, philanthropic and leadership development projects and programs. Through these, the Foundation commits itself to making a difference both on the collegiate campus and within the community at-large.
Thanks to our Zeta sisters, families, friends and corporate donors who joined in our Proud Past, Promising Future campaign. The Foundation exceeded its $5 million goal by raising $5.5 million for the 2006-2008 biennium! Those funds allowed the Foundation to continue its programs in scholarship, philanthropy, leadership development and education.
The ZTA Foundation remains committed to raising funds for educational and philanthropic programs that meet the ever-changing needs of our Fraternity, college campuses and community.
