Balances of funds held by the SigEp Educational Foundation are now available to view in mySigEp. Each quarter, the previous quarter’s fund activity will be uploaded for your convenience. The “AVC Fund Balances” page is also now where you request funds for scholarships, program sponsorships, grants and reimbursements.
Keep in mind – some funds operate like a checking account, with the full balance available for immediate use, while others are invested as an endowment with 4.25% of the 12 Quarter Rolling Average available for use. If you have questions about your fund’s distribution policy, please view fund details on your fund.
To view chapter or AVC-related funds, you must be a member of the alumni and volunteer corporation. To find funds, follow these instructions:
1. Select the AVC from the group selector in the top right corner
2. Select the “AVC Funds Dashboard” button to view the chapter’s scholarship funds, available scholarship amounts, and fund details.
The “Fund Balance as of XX/XX/20XX” column will show you the most recent reported quarter’s ending balance. The “Fiscal Year Amount Available” column will show you, based on whether the fund is set up as an endowment or not, the amount of money you’re able to request from that fund this fiscal year.
Click the “Request Funds” button to request a disbursement from chapter funds.
Click the “View Fund Details” button to view a fund’s Quarterly Fund Activity reports, fund impact and previous award recipients.
Click the “View Donors” button to view a list of donors and gifts to a fund during this fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).
See here for more information about using the Chapter Investment Fund. Chapters can access up to 100% of the CIF fund if used for real estate acquisitions or renovations. Alternatively, chapters can transfer to an RLC fund and withdraw money based on the educational percentage of the facility, which is typically determined by legal counsel.
Requesting funds has never been easier! Now in mySigEp, there’s a button to request funds directly from one of your AVC’s funds held at the SigEp Educational Foundation. This feature is available to all AVC members.
1. Login to mySigEp
2. Select the AVC you’d like to view the funds for
3. Click the “AVC Funds Dashboard” button
4. To the right of the fund you wish to request scholarships, grants, program sponsorships, or reimbursements from, you can click the “Request Funds” button.
5. From here, you will complete the form.
After completing the form for a scholarship request, you’ll receive a confirmation email when the request is received AND when the request has been finalized and the check is on the way!
Newly Established Funds
If you’ve recently consolidated multiple funds or established a new fund with the SigEp Educational Foundation, you may not see it in your AVC Funds Dashboard until next quarter. Fund balances are reported on a quarterly basis approximately 45-60 days after the quarter’s close. If you don’t yet see the fund, it means there is no fund performance activity to show yet. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about transfers or donations to the fund in question in the meantime.
Some donors have established funds with the SigEp Educational Foundation, and they can view the performance of those funds via mySigEp.
2. Click on the “My Giving History” tile
3. Near the top of the page, donors who have established endowment funds will see a statement that says, ” Thanks for being a donor who’s established a fund with the SigEp Educational Foundation, click here to view Fund Performance.” Click into this link to see the details of your fund.
