Donating to the Chapter
Please make a tax-deductible donation to the chapter by going to the Carnegie Mellon University donation page and, after clicking on the Give Now button, search for Pi Kappa Alpha in the Search All Funds dialogue. Use of donations made through CMU is approved by the Office of Student Leadership, Involvement, and Civic Engagement in consultation with the Chapter Advisor and can be used by the chapter for a variety of educational purposes. Note that many companies will match donations made through the university.

BSAA administers the King Solomon Fund to support buggy. When donations permit, BSAA plans to increase the number and type of activities it supports both for alumni and the chapter.
