The Iota Foundation

The Iota Foundation was created in 2004 by a group of Zete Alumni under the leadership of Stephen S. Harper (1965) with the vision of supporting the Zeta Psi Iota Chapter at Cal. The Foundation is a California non-profit corporation.

Our Mission

The Iota Foundation shall serve to maintain the long- held tradition of leadership, strength and camaraderie of the Iota Chapter of Zeta Psi at U.C. Berkeley. By working closely with the ZY Active Brothers, the ZY Alumni Association and the Zete Mothers' Club and by fostering a renewed commitment and sense of awareness amongst the Alumni, the Foundation shall provide the leadership and support necessary to meet the Chapter's current and long-term needs.

Message from the Chairman


Here’s a snapshot of what’s been accomplished so far and what we’re currently working on:

  • We set up our website (www.IotaFoundation.com) including an on-line directory of over 900 alumni and initiated regular newsletters keeping alumni up to date on important Iota news and events. Have you moved recently or gotten a new job? Click here to update your information.
  • The Foundation continues to execute on its major fundraising effort and capital campaign in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of the present Chapter House at 2728 Bancroft Way.  We welcome input from all Alumni that are interested in retiring the existing $500,000 mortgage on the House, as well as creating a maintenance fund to cover the on-going upkeep of the roof, plumbing and electrical systems, as well as kitchen modernization, refinishing the hardwood floors, and the restoration of the library.

  • The Iota Foundation has established its status as a 501(c)(3) tax deductible foundation



Your Support Makes It Possible

We are very grateful to the many contributors to the Iota Foundation.  Over $1.1 million has been contributed by loyal Zetes spanning nearly a century of representative classes. 

If you haven’t yet given or would like to make another contribution for 2011, now is a great time to show your support. Click here to make a contribution to the Iota Foundation.


We are also grateful to the many contributors to the Sabin Fund.  Approximately $50,000 had been loaned by the Sabin Fund to the Alumni Association to cover shortfalls in operating expenses. Click here for a list of contributors.

We still have a ways to go and strongly encourage you to contribute today. Click here to make your tax deductible donation to the Sabin Fund today!
