About Alpha Xi Gives

The Alpha Xi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.  |   Scholarship Campaign

The mission of the Alpha Xi Gives 2018-2023 scholarship initiative is to bring together alumni of the Alpha Xi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. to raise money for Florida A&M University scholarships.

The 5-year goal of Alpha Xi Gives is to raise up to $1 million for FAMU scholarships by the Alpha Xi Chapter's 90th anniversary in 2023.

Through March 2, 2020, Alpha Xi Gives raised $252K in donations, funded pledges and other gifts from 125 Alpha Xi alumni, lines, the chapter and supporters.


Alpha Xi Gives was recognized at the 2019 Homecoming Convocation and at halftime of the Homecoming Game for the campaign's record one-year fundraising efforts.

Alpha Xi Gives launched five new FAMU scholarships for the 2019-20 academic year and the campaign established an endowed scholarship fund at FAMU, making the Alpha Xi Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. the only male fraternal organization on campus with an endowed fund.
