Membership as a Foundation Ambassador is open to anyone who chooses to play a role in advancing the Foundation and willingly shares their treasure to support its efforts. For more information about how to become a Foundation Ambassador, contact the TKE Educational Foundation.

The Foundation Ambassadors sign a 5-year $5,000 pledge, committing to donate $1,000 a year or $83.33 per month, for quality leadership and scholarship programs for our collegiate Fraters.
