LF: In your own words, what is the Deltasig Investors Roundtable? 

BL: The Roundtable is a level of investing into the Fraternity that provides you insights into their efforts and direction. 

LF: What inspires you to give back to Delta Sigma Pi philanthropically? 

BL: Many reasons! But, it started in college when I was awarded a scholarship from the Leadership Foundation. I decided to "pay it forward" by donating at least $100 yearly until it was paid off. Once it was paid off, I kept going. That was 25 years ago. 

LF: Why did you make the choice to be a Roundtable member? 

BL: I was intrigued by the opportunity to provide feedback and direction to the Leadership Foundation. 

LF: What encouragement would you offer to your fellow brothers for them to join you as a Roundtable member? 

BL: If you are already giving anywhere close to $1,000 a year, go ahead and up it to $1,200 a year to be involved with this opportunity.

LF: What is your favorite Deltasig memory?

BL: Leadership Academy 1994. It was an unusual opportunity and a concentrated group. 

LF: Do you have any final thoughts? 

BL: Being a Deltasig For Life Donor (DFLD) is an easy way to contribute to the Fraternity by setting up your donations on auto-payment. All you have to do is select the amount and the frequency. The Leadership Foundation will take care of the rest. 

Joining Beth as a member of the Deltasig Investors Roundtable can be accomplished in a variety of ways, depending on your annual philanthropic goals. You can make a one-time investment ($1,200 annually), quarterly investment ($300 per quarter) or monthly investment ($100 per month). You can also make a five-year investment by establishing a financial pledge with the Foundation (minimum of $1,200 per year, $6,000 total).
