Welcome to the Theta Xi Educational Foundation of Pittsburgh web site. We are pleased to share with you our mission and goals to support the educational needs of students. We are proud of our educational resources for students in Pittsburgh, Western Pennsylvania, and beyond. This is because of our loyal donors to the Foundation’s mission and vision.

Started in 1955 under the visionary leadership of Otto Richter and Elmer Kaelin, the Foundation today involves several volunteers leading a concentrated effort to support student scholars, academic achievement, and leadership development for tomorrow’s leaders.

If you have any questions regarding the Foundation, please contact a Board Member at your convenience.

I hope that you will join me by supporting the Theta Xi Educational Foundation of Pittsburgh’s educational efforts. By giving, you will have the satisfaction of making a positive difference in the lives of tomorrow's leaders!

Yours in the Bonds,

Ronald Shidemantle
