Military Appreciation Initiative
Military Appreciation Initiative - In celebration of National Military Appreciation Week, in November Beta Alpha Zeta Chapter honors our Veterans, Active Duty, National Guardsman, and Reservists who so honorably serve our nation. We also would like to honor their families who have gone through enormous sacrifices for these members to serve.
Educational Scholarships - Beta Alpha Zeta Chapter created and operates an educational scholarship fund exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The principle activities and purpose of the program is to award scholarship grants to worthy students for the pursuit of higher education; to conduct community educational programs which will aid in the educational and vocational improvement in individual and community living standards; to engage in activities which will aid in the educational development of all women; and to engage in any appropriate research related to the purposes of the Foundation scholarship.
Adopt-A-School allows members of Zeta Phi Beta to identify low performing schools and provide assistance in a number of ways to enhance the educational experience, increase test scores and grades. Beta Alpha Zeta purchases supplies and/or equipment, provide volunteer hours, assist with parent engagement programs and work with administrators to identify needs that may be specific to that particular school.
