The Gamma Xi Chapter Foundation for Educational Pursuits is a 501(c)(3) charity formed by the Gamma Xi Chapter of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, which is an honorary educational society for women educators. Karen Phillips, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Foundation states, "We encourage young women to pursue an educational career. One means of encouragement is the yearly offering of monetary grants to women in the current graduation class who intend to pursue a course of study in the field of education."

All applications and supporting materials have been sent to local high school counseling centers in District U-46 and District 300, as well as, in the private high schools of these attendance areas. Applications and supporting materials must be received at the designated address by February 18, 2014. Eligible candidates can call Kimberly Gavigan, 224.484.5182 or email kimberly.gavigan@d300.org for further information.

In 2013, the Board of Directors of the Foundation awarded a total of $5000 to several high school senior women and budgeted an additional $5150 for

stipends available to college sophomores, juniors and seniors who were previous recipients of a Foundation grant.

Monies for these grant opportunities are received from various supporters including the EFS Foundation, bequests and/or memorials from local donors, and attendees at the annual fundraising event sponsored by the

Illinois Humanities Council and The Gamma Xi Foundation for Educational Pursuits.

Anyone interested in supporting the Foundation in its mission to Fund Tomorrow's Educators Today or requiring more information about the annual fundraising event may contact Barbara Peterson at gxcf08@gmail.com.
