As of December 31, 2012, the North American Interfraternal Foundation (NIF) will dissolve as a legal entity after sixty-six years of operation. During that time, over $1,000,000 in scholarships and grants were distributed to individuals and organizations to further the cause of the "North American Fraternal Experience."
For those who have donated over the last six decades, we thank you for your contributions that made a difference in the educational lives of so many. For those who have been recipients of our scholarships and grants, we are grateful for the fine work you have done for the betterment of the fraternal experience including the funding and support of the Hazing Research Initiative conducted by Dr. Elizabeth Allen at the University of Maine.
Our founders created the NIF to assist the Greek movement in a time when most fraternities and sororities did not have their own educational foundations. As years passed and groups created their foundations, the needs of the community changed and with that change, the NIF evolved. Throughout the years, our Boards of Directors, composed of loyal fraternity men and sorority women, gave of their time, talent and treasury to support our work. We are grateful for their commitment.
The assets of the NIF will be distributed in accordance with our bylaws by a Task Force established for that specific purpose.
Thank you to all who have supported the NIF since its founding in 1946.
