PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS

AEPi has worked to establish official partnership relationships with a number of organizations within the Jewish community. These organizations provide outstanding opportunities for personal, professional or religious leadership and learning opportunities for our undergraduates and alumni. Each of these partners offers something different to our brothers and should be considered for their programmatic offerings. If you have questions about the AEPi official partners, please contact Jonathan Polson at [email protected].

A number of our partners hold leadership and learning conferences throughout the year. We encourage our undergraduates (and alumni, when appropriate) to seriously consider attending these leadership opportunities. Occasionally, the AEPi Foundation will provide undergraduates with grants to attend some of these programs. If you are interested, please email [email protected] for more information.

OFFICIAL PHILANTHROPY

The mission of Alpha Epsilon Pi – developing the future leaders of the Jewish community – is demonstrated every day through acts of brotherhood, social awareness, support for Jewish communities and Israel and Tzedakah (charity). Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam – repairing the world – are among the most important principles of our fraternity.

The Alpha Epsilon Pi Official Philanthropy Program (OPP) is committed to supporting Jewish causes to reinforce these ideals through our Repair the World Fund.

In 2014, Alpha Epsilon Pi launched a $1,000,000 commitment to 10 Jewish organizations. The goal is to raise the $100,000 for each organization over the next five years. However, AEPi has a habit of meeting our goals earlier than expected! Our previous pledge of $700,000 had a goal of 7 years, but we fulfilled it in only four years!

The Repair the World Fund currently supports 10 Beneficiaries. These organizations are BBYO, B’nai B’rith’s Disaster Relief Program, Gift of Life, Heroes to Heroes, Israel Children’s Cancer Foundation, IDF Widows & Orphans Organization, Innovation: Africa, MadaTech Museum, Simon Wiesenthal Center, and Birthright Israel.

OUR AFFILIATIONS

Alpha Epsilon Pi is proud to work with a number of prestigious organizations to jointly tackle issues facing today’s Jewish communities, college students and Greek organizations. Some of these organizations include:

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations advances the interests of the American Jewish community, sustains broad-based support for Israel and addresses the critical concerns facing world Jewry. The Conference is at the forefront mobilizing support to halt Iran’s nuclear program and to counter the global campaign to delegitimize Israel and the Jewish people.

The Conference is the preeminent forum where diverse segments of the Jewish community come together in mutual respect to deliberate vital national and international issues. Recognizing that common interests and goals far outweigh differences, the Conference sets policy and priorities, deliberates proactive strategies and takes collective action. Maximizing community resources, expertise, and energy enables the Conference’s remarkable achievements.

Alpha Epsilon Pi is the only college fraternity to be elected a full member of this important and prestigious organization.

The North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) is a cohesive effort to bring about changes in the fraternity industry. Member organizations are invested to achieve the vision to impact campus communities through increased, strategic support based on the five new priorities of the NIC:

  • Create an effective grassroots program for all Interfraternity Councils (IFCs) and provide exceptional support for “Focus Campuses” in an effort to strengthen and build healthier fraternity communities.
  • Develop consistent educational programming for all IFC officers, staff and volunteers.
  • Create a database that allows members to make data-driven decisions, share best practices and streamline operations.
  • Lead sophisticated public relations efforts to advance the “Fraternity” brand.
  • Produce effective advocacy programs that strengthen higher education partnerships and utilize governmental and legal affairs.
