The Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation raises and manages funds to support the educational initiatives of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and the maintenance and operation of the Levere Memorial Temple. These initiatives include:
Chapter Education and Allocation Funds
The Foundation provides chapter alumni organizations and housing corporations with the option of creating Chapter Education and Allocation Funds on behalf of their affiliated chapters. These funds are created through tax-deductible donations from alumni and friends and are for the express purpose of benefiting the educational needs of the chapter members.
In 2016 the SAE Foundation distributed over $83,000 in scholarships. Gifts made to these educational scholarships are tax-deductible. Learn more about our national scholarship program here.
The Levere Memorial Temple
The Temple is not only the home of the Fraternity Service Center, but also is a memorial to all SAEs who have lost their lives in war. The Temple is an architectural treasure and contains a specially-designed collection of Tiffany stained glass. The Temple also houses Sigma Alpha Epsilon's archives and collections. Over $300,000 is spent each year to maintain and operate the building. See and read more of our national headquarters here.
John O. Moseley Leadership School

In 2013, the Foundation made a grant for $115,000 to the Leadership School to help subsidize undergraduate tutition revenues.
