August 30, 2013: Oxford, Ohio – The Phi Kappa Tau Foundation is excited to announce Greg Koman, Mount Union ’11, as the new Brothers Trust chairman. The position was created to aid the Foundation with the Brothers Trust and provide an undergraduate viewpoint for an initiative that directly impacts the undergraduate membership.
Koman is Epsilon chapter president at Mount Union and was the program intern this past summer at the Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices.
“I am excited to serve in my new role as the Brothers Trust chairman because it is giving me the opportunity to motivate undergraduates to be more involved with the Fraternity on the national level,” Koman said. “Their donation of $19.06 will help fund various aspects of our Fraternity, including educational programs that can help benefit the donor and their chapter for years to come.”
The Brothers Trust provides an opportunity for Phi Kappa Tau undergraduates to begin a discipline of giving and play a lead role in sustaining the future of the Phi Kappa Tau while enhancing charitable unrestricted giving to the Foundation.
With Brothers Trust Month taking place in September, it was the perfect time for the Foundation to introduce the position. During the month, undergraduates across the country will be donating to the Brothers Trust, where their dollars will directly support Men of Character Programs, scholarships for fellow brothers and chapter development programming. Chapters that achieve 100 percent participation will receive special recognition, such as a chapter banner and a brick in the Centennial Gardens at the Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices.
Koman will work with the Foundation staff to help ensure the initiative is meeting the strategic goals set for it.
“He is truly passionate about Phi Kappa Tau and all that it stands for,” said Development Coordinator Julia McMurray. “His natural ability to lead will be such an asset for the future and will pave the way for others to contribute to the Foundation, whether it is through the Brothers Trust or through volunteering their time.”
