Investing in Servant Leaders

"It is the mission of the Phi Kappa Theta National Foundation to enhance the quality of the educational, spiritual and fraternal programs of the National Fraternity and its local chapters, by providing funding for those programs, and offering guidance as to their implementation."

Boysie Bollinger Leadership Academy

These annual conferences take place throughout the country and are the premier annual educational opportunities for our collegiate Brothers. Attendees benefit from alumni and staff facilitated workshops focusing on each of our five developmental areas: leadership, intellectual, fraternal, social and spiritual. There is also a special track designed for chapter presidents, with a heavy focus on self-awareness, leadership, and communication.

Impact 18

The National Leadership Institute, 'Impact 18', is dedicated to the development and education of our members. While this event is rich in traditions such as the Ritual Exemplification and the Recognition Banquet, it also provides creative, hands on learning, preparing our Brothers for life after college. The program is held in alternate years and boasts programming in all five developmental areas focusing on personal development and life skills.

Professional Staffing

Implementing quality leadership development requires talented staff. Foundation funding supports the Fraternity’s education director, who works with chapters and their leaders to ensure tailored programs are available in the five areas of development.
