The Triangle Education Foundation adopted the Chapter Endowment Fund Program to help address individual chapter needs.  The program is designed to provide additional funding to a chapter each year to support educational, leadership and academic programs that advance the mission of Triangle and the Foundation in building better men in the fields of Engineering, Architecture and Science.  This exciting program provides opportunities to fund the educational purposes of Triangle chapters and the educational and leadership needs of its undergraduate brothers.
