Rose of Sharon Education Foundation

The Rose of Sharon Education (ROSE) Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports members of Phi Beta Chi through scholarships and awards.


With the help of generous tax-deductible donations, the ROSE Foundation has provided assistance to convention attendees, sponsored awards to honor individual excellence, provided financial assistance for missions trips, supported educational programming opportunities, and more.


"The ROSE Foundation enabled me to attend Phi Beta Chi’s 2019 Convention in Chicago. From this experience I was able to meet sisters from other PBX chapters and learn how to be an effective leader. I am now serving as Director of Operations for Kappa chapter, and use the leadership skills I learned at convention every day. I am extremely fortunate to have had support from the ROSE foundation to fund this experience."

-Shelby Brown (Kappa Chapter)

"From the grant we received from ROSE, two members from Omega Colony were able to attend convention for the first time. By being able to send two members meant that we could represent our colony even greater, and we could share the experience together and form a stronger bond. We became better friends and sisters because of the travel experience we gained from the grant provided!"

-Kelsey Andersen (Omega Colony)
