Eric J. Almquist Housing Investment Fund (HIF)
In accordance with Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity Supreme Law IX, Section 10, the Housing Investment Fund (“HIF”) shall be owned, operated, and administered by Pi Kappa Phi Properties, Inc. (“PKPP”). To that end, the PKPP Board of Directors have adopted the following Operating Policy to govern the administration of the HIF.
The Housing Investment Fund was established in 2012 by the 53rd Supreme Chapter in Washington D.C. to further the goal of Pi Kappa Phi Properties to provide quality local chapter homes for our members. The Housing Investment Fund is made possible through our undergraduate members contributions of $10 per semester.
To effect that Purpose, the HIF may be used in the following manner:
- Equity in PKPP real estate acquisitions
- Investment in real estate acquisitions by Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity chapters or alumni corporations
- Refundable deposits for potential future real estate acquisitions
