The SDM Triangle Legacy Fund was created to help our Chapter thrive for many years to come. Between three different foundations our goal is to create Scholarships and funding to continue on the Legacy of SDM Triangle. Two of the Foundations you may already be familiar with. The CARA Foundation is the Foundation at SDM where we have been receiving donations since it's inception. We have two funds at Triangle Nationals, the SDM Chapter Endowment Fund and the Terry Newlin Memorial Scholarship Fund. This year we setup two new funds at the Black Hills Area Community Foundation to help explore more avenues for Scholarships and start working towards funding to help ensure that the Actives continue to have an enriching Chapter Home.
The SDM Chapter Triangle Fraternity Endowment Fund donations go towards both house improvements and funding 3 scholarships every year.
The Triangle Education Foundation is home to both the Terry Newlin Memorial Scholarship Fund and the SDM Chapter Endowment Fund. The Terry Newlin Memorial Scholarship Fund currently awards 2 scholarships each year for service to SDM Triangle, University, Local Community, and Triangle Nationals. With continued donations the goal is to increase the number of scholarships awarded each year. The one link below will take you to the donation page where you can select which fund you would like to donate to.
New contributions to the Terry Newlin Memorial Scholarship Fund will be matched $1 for $1 up to $25K in 2021
These new funds were created this year, 2021, to provide another alternative Donation location right here in Rapid City. Each fund was created with a specific purpose in mind. The Scholarship Fund was created to provide more scholarships for SDM Triangle Actives who excel Academically, in Chapter or Community Leadership, or in Communicty Service. Once the fund is fully funded, this fund will provide 5 scholarships annually. The Chapter House Replacment Fund was created for just that, the eventual replacement of 402 South Street. The Actives and Alumni all love our current chapter house, but eventually there is only so much blood, sweat, and tears that can keep the house going. Each fund has their own unique link below.
BHACF will match $.25 for every new $1 up to $20K (while matching funds are available)
