Collegiate Crescent Fund

Deadline: January 01 2021 at 11:59 PM CST (Midnight)


Description

Consistent with its mission to support its member in every possible way, the Delta Delta Delta Foundation will provide emergency assistance to Tri Delta undergraduate collegians after their first year of membership upon experiencing an unforeseen financial crisis that force them to withdraw from school. The following guidelines will be used:

1. In order to be eligible for consideration, (1) the Tri Delta must be an undergraduate, (2) she must be enrolled in school full time, (3) a full year must have passed since the date of her initiation, and (4) she must be facing an unforeseen financial crisis.

2. To apply to the one-time Collegiate Crescent Fund grant, the member must describe her need and financial situation. The Collegiate Crescent Fund committee will investigate as necessary to ensure the validity of the application and may require documentation for approval. IRS regulations do not allow the applicant to use these funds to pay Tri Delta dues, fees for Tri Delta chapter housing. In order to comply with IRS regulations and properly monitor Collegiate Crescent Fund activities, a confidential file is maintained for each grant recipient. The file contains grant application materials, a record of action taken regarding the case, and a record of grant payments. Every attempt will be made to keep these files confidential.

3. Applications can be made at any time throughout the year. The maximum grant available is $2,500.
