The Monmouth CEF Committee
In December 2005, several ΔΒ Chapter alumni created a specific ΔΒ Chapter Scholarship Fund at the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation. This fund was changed to a Chapter Educational Fund (CEF) in April 2010 (see specific uses of the CEF below). This change required a committee of chapter alumni to be created with the duty to create fundraising events, increase promotional efforts, and submit grant requests to the Foundation.
The members of the committee are: Joseph V. Palazzolo ’03, Chairman; Anthony Horan ’15, Vice Chairman; Vinny Bruno ’14, Mike Ciavarella ’98, Andrew Grosso ’08, Mike Stigliano ’17, and Jimmy Vandervalk ’13.
Thus far, the ΔΒ Chapter CEF has been used to award annual scholarships to undergraduate members of the chapter, pay for travel and registration costs associated with attending international events, and pay for costs associated with hosting local educational workshops on Monmouth University’s campus. Future plans for the ΔΒ Chapter CEF include increasing the dollar amount and number of annual scholarships available for undergraduates and potentially using the fund to help create a Brotherhood Hall for use by undergraduate and alumni members of ΔΒ Chapter.
