Honor Society Seeks to Raise $88,000 for Scholarships and More
The inaugural Psi Chi Annual Giving Campaign commences in fall 2017. Donations will allow PSI CHI to continue expanding the practice of giving out more than $400,000 in annual awards, grants, and scholarships.
Psi Chi will also begin using donations to increase its Membership Assistance Fund and promote a year-long initiative to destigmatize mental illness as proposed by Psi Chi Board President Dr. R. Eric Landrum. Psi Chi asks for members as well as faculty and other supporters to “Give Back to Psi Chi” by donating at www.psichi.org/donations.  
Dr. Nadine Kaslow, former APA President and professor at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, will chair the campaign. Dr. Kaslow says, "For me, giving back to Psi Chi through volunteerism reflects my appreciation of its meaningful programs including its newest initiative to destigmatize help-seeking on college campuses and its capacity to truly make a difference in the lives of psychology majors."
Many Psi Chi members major in psychology because they want to give back. Now, donors to the Give Back campaign can make a direct impact by helping to fund much-needed research, reward academic achievement, and help underprivileged students succeed through research grants and scholarships. 

Psi Chi has set a goal to raise $88,000 in honor of the Society’s 88th anniversary. “Our vision is to award 100 scholarships in our 100th year,” says Executive Director Martha S. Zlokovich, PhD. 
Psi Chi will also take part in Giving Tuesday on November 28, 2017, a day dedicated to giving back to your non-profit(s) of choice. Direct donations to our Give Back campaign at  www.psichi.org/donations.
