“Lifting Up” is a fundraising campaign initiated by Sigma Lambda Beta Education Foundation’s Board of Trustees in full partnership with Sigma Lambda Beta’s Executive Board of Directors. It is a 5-year campaign that kicked off in July 2018 and will culminate at Leadership Institute (LI) 2023.


“Lifting Up” will increase the Leadership Institute Fund for Tomorrow’s (LIFT) Leaders. Established in 2012, LIFT was created with the vision of one day fully endowing the Sigma Lambda Beta Leadership Institute.

Campaign Goal:

Raise a minimum of $100,000 aligned to the LIFT fund.

The long-term goal is for the LIFT fund to provide grants that would fully-fund Sigma Lambda Beta’s Leadership Institute While this 5-yr campaign will not get us there, it will set the tone and establish habits that will allow for the fund to increase in value over time
