Why Our Annual Campaign Can Change the World
Psi Chi Director of Membership and Development
Here at Psi Chi Central Office, I have the pleasure of interacting with members on a daily basis. I love to hear and tell members’ stories about their exciting contributions to psychology. It’s the stories of our members, the mentoring of our incredible advisors, and the leadership of our board of directors that get me excited about the possibilities for the future of Psi Chi.
You are the future of Psi Chi. By supporting you, by offering you benefits and opportunities, we secure the future of psychology and guess what, you can change the world.
Please join us in our first year-long annual giving campaign. This year’s goal is $88,000 (for Psi Chi’s 88th anniversary on September 4, 2017) to help destigmatize mental illness, aid our Membership Assistance Fund, as well as to support our awards, grants, and scholarships.
And can you believe we’re already 20% toward our goal? With your help, we can surpass it! Many get into the field because of a desire to give back. Now, by giving back to Psi Chi, you can make a direct impact on the science of psychology!
By raising funds, Psi Chi can better support its mission and expand opportunities for its members worldwide. Psi Chi President Dr. R. Eric Landrum of Boise State University has a year-long presidential initiative. His goal is to help destigmatize the process of seeking help for mental illness. With your support, this initiative will change the world for those who need help and for those who give help. Our Give Back campaign will also support this very important initiative.
So what does this mean for you? It means more opportunities for awards, grants or scholarships, expanded benefits and a way to be directly engaged with important initiatives like Dr. Landrum’s.
I encourage you to consider giving back to Psi Chi today. Simply visit psichi/donations.org and make your tax exempt gift. We are striving to make your experience as a life-long Psi Chi member valuable. By raising funds to support our mission, Psi Chi will be stronger now as well as into the future.
Thank you for giving back to Psi Chi!
A Better You
