P.A.D. International Foundation

foundation_bars.pngThe Phi Alpha Delta International Foundation needs your support to continue the mission of providing leadership scholarship, professional development training, and continued service opportunities to our members. These opportunities make a difference in the lives of students and Phi Alpha Delta alumni.

If you would like to make a donation in someone's honor, please note it in the Donor Comments section of the secure donation forms through the link below.


Many members contributing to The Foundation have asked P.A.D. to set up a recurring monthly option. We are now able to customize any gift.

You can customize your gift to fit your budget. Make a pledge for $500? You can break it up into any increments you'd like. Do you want to make a monthly gift to The Foundation for many years? You can do that too.

Make a contribution today, and see the convenient options for your charitable giving.

Many of the Phi Alpha Delta International Foundation's grants and scholarships currently fund the attendance of brothers and sisters to P.A.D.'s Biennial Convention. Convention is held every two years to bring together P.A.D. student and alumni members from around the world. Delegates elect International Officers and set the Fraternity’s course for the future. In addition to the business of Convention, workshops, panels and guest speakers on a variety of topics are offered. Convention presents invaluable fraternal networking and professional growth opportunities for both student and alumni members.
