Become a Sponsor!

Phi Kappa Theta at WPI Raising Guide Dog Puppy
Earlier this year, Phi Kappa Theta at Worcester Polytechnic Institute welcomed a new fraternity brother, Diesel. The brothers are training Diesel to become a guide dog for the Guide Dog Foundation. The Foundation provides people who are blind or visually impaired with highly trained guide dogs free of charge, and operates almost entirely from donations and volunteer work.

Jake Scheide ’19 is a computer science major and serves as one of Diesel’s primary handlers. All of the brothers share the responsibility of raising and training Diesel.

This initiative demonstrates Phi Kappa Theta at WPI’s dedication to their fraternity’s motto, "Give, expecting nothing thereof."

Share your Success – Be in the NGLA Spotlight!
Did your campus just win an award? Is your community engaged in an amazing philanthropy or community service initiative? Have some news that you just need to share with the NGLA community? We want to know!

Share your news by nominating a chapter, council, community, or individual to be in the NGLA Spotlight. The NGLA Spotlight is in addition to the annual NGLA Awards.

Is your community innovative?
NGLA offers an Innovation Grant for fraternity and sorority communities to come together to creatively and collaboratively solve problems and challenges. The purpose of the Innovation Grant is to provide campuses or organizations with the resources to employ creative, new approaches to problems or issues faced within your community and whose solution may also benefit other fraternal communities in the Northeast. The committee is looking for proposals that make an impact on those students who participate.

The grant eligibility criteria and application form are available on the NGLA Innovation Grant webpage. NGLA looks forward to supporting your innovative ideas that strengthen your community and further NGLA’s mission to “educate leaders from a variety of fraternal experiences to transform and empower their community and align actions with values.”
