Will you give a student the Phi Theta Kappa Edge on Giving Tuesday – December 3rd?

International President James Elliott and President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner propose a challenge:

If 350 donors make gifts on December 3rd, they will match up to $5,000.  James is passionate about establishing Golden Opportunity Scholarships for incarcerated members, while Lynn wants to see more funding for The Edge membership benefits. 

We know you’re busy – so all gifts made through this page will be counted toward the challenge!  

You will make a difference in a student’s life with your gift. 

Our Mission

The mission of the Phi Theta Kappa Foundation is to secure the financial resources to support the values, vision, and priorities of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

Who We Support

Phi Theta Kappa members aren’t who you might think they are. They face the same challenges as their non-member peers, but they are much more likely to succeed.
