Non-Designated gifts support the National Fraternity and provide resources and programming to all AGR chapters. Gifts with no specific designation (i.e. Loyalty Fund for AGR) at the time of donation support operations and programs of the Foundation with no gifting or management fee.
Through non-designated gifts, the Foundation is able to assist the National Fraternity with projects which serve the needs of multiple chapters. With support from these gifts, the National Fraternity assembles programs that individual chapters could not efficiently do alone. These programs include but are not limited to:
- Leadership Seminars
- Matching Funds to Chapters
- Undergraduate Achievement Awards
- Recruitment Schools
- Chapter Strategic Planning Sessions
- Adviser and Housemother/House Director Forums
Designated Endowment Funds
Designated Endowment Funds can include achievement awards to chapter members who accomplish academic, leadership, and/or citizenship achievements, educational and/or leadership grants for expenses not covered from other sources for chapter officers or members, Chapter Advisers, Housemothers/House Directors, and members of the Alumni Association to attend Leadership Seminars, and other educational and/or leadership events sponsored by Alpha Gamma Rho. Designated Endowment Funds can also be used for grants to purchase computer hardware and software to be used for educational purposes, grants to purchase educational and/or leadership materials and services for appropriate educational activities, and grants of funds for scholarships at the university for members and potential members.
