Donate to Joe Festa Award of the Nu Sigma Phi Scholarship Fund

Now is the time to celebrate a Brother – and come to the aid of many more!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Almost seventy five years ago, a small group of friends, sat around a table at the cafeteria sharing their frustrations over be denied access to the fraternities on campus. As the conversation evolved they learned their rejection was based on criteria such as chosen major, religious beliefs, heritage, culture, and unfortunately in some cases, skin color.

While they may not have realized it at the time, that conversation turned out to be the birth of Nu Sigma Phi. In 1939, our brotherhood was founded on the principles of democracy, community, diversity and inclusion. These values are the cornerstone of our great fraternity and remain so to this very day.

Over the years our fellowship has endured much, but through it all, thanks to the unwavering support of our brothers the spirit of Phi was kept alive. Our motto, “Progress through the ages” is as testament to the strength of our collective bond.

Today, Nu Sigma Phi is one of the largest and most respected fraternities at Kean University.  Since our return, the active brothers have consistently received awards for holding the highest GPA of any Greek organization. Additionally, they have gathered numerous accolades for contributions to the university, surrounding communities and various charitable organizations.

As we celebrate and acknowledge these accomplishments, we must also recognize the perils that face our organization. One, for example, is skyrocketing costs. College tuition, room and board, living expenses, books and supplies have forced some of our active brothers to reduce credit loads, switch to part-time status and in some unfortunate cases; delay attendance outright.

Your donation in the name of our beloved brother, Joe Festa, will not only memorialize his iconic legacy but will help to ensure that future generations of Phi have the opportunity to grow and succeed.

Donations will be awarded to active brothers of Nu Sigma Phi only via the Joe Festa Award of the Nu Sigma Phi Scholarship Fund. Your donations are fully tax deductible as the Nu Sigma Phi Scholarship Fund is a recognized 501 (c) 3 scholarship fund.

Please come to the aid of a brother and make your donation today. Thank you!
