As we reported earlier this year, the brothers of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc.’s founding chapter at Morgan State University has created a $100,000 endowment to the HBCU as part of their 50thAnniversary Endowed Scholarship Fund.

The fraternity is moving toward their pledge goal of $100,000 and recently made a $30,000 donation, a big step toward fulfilling their endowment to the university through the National Iota Foundation.

Mathew Reeds, the Polaris(president) of the Alpha Chapter of Iota Phi Theta dug into his own pockets and contributed $5,000 of his own money to this $30,000 donation to the school.

“Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. has provided me with an opportunity to grow personally, especially in my leadership qualities, in ways that cannot be paralleled. And to whom much is given, much is required,” Morgan State’s website reports Reeds saying. “I am extremely proud and honored to give back so that other needy Morgan students will have the same opportunities for academic and professional success that I now have.”

“This fraternity has a special connection to Morgan and it is evident by this tremendous commitment to the University,” the university’s website quoted President Wilson stating. “We are grateful for their support.”

This is a big donation from an undergrad who is currently still attending the school.
