". . .For I am the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Field"
The Rose of Sharon Education (ROSE) Foundation is a non-profit organization created to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The Foundation is a tax-deductible organization under IRS code 501 (c) (3) and supports members of Phi Beta Chi with scholarships or awards.
With the help of generous donations from sisters, the ROSE Foundation has provided assistance to convention attendees as well as sponsoring the awards to honor individual excellence annually. ROSE recently provided financial assistance for a sister's mission trip and more opportunities for support are being considered as funds are available.
With your support, ROSE can continue this service as well as branch out more and offer assistance is other educational areas of the sorority such as educational opportunities on campuses and through national programming. Please consider what you can do to give back and support our sisterhood. No contribution is too small and all are appreciated!
