Make a gift to the Gregg J. Ormond Memorial Fund

"What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?” 

Gregg Ormond understood and embraced Winston Churchill’s prescription for living a meaningful life.  In fact, he embodied it.  He lived his too-short life in the passionate pursuit of noble causes and has left the world a far better place.

On Tuesday, January 6th – Gregg Ormond entered the Chapter Eternal after a brief but valiant battle with cancer, peacefully and surrounded by loved ones.  Even now, it is hard to believe that his irrepressible spirit, unfailing kindness and incandescent smile live only in memory.

Gregg loved Pi Kappa Alpha and served it in countless ways –as Beta Pi SMC and Undergraduate Supreme Council Vice President, as a regional president and long-standing member of the Housing Commission and its successor White Horse Corporation, and as a tireless alumnus volunteer for his own Beta Pi Chapter at the University of Pennsylvania and his adopted Gamma Omega Chapter at University of Miami, where he earned his law degree. 

Gregg dreamt of creating a $250,000 endowment to fund these programs in perpetuity. What better way to honor his memory and enhance his legacy than to realize that dream?

To that end, we are pleased to announce the Gregg J. Ormond Memorial Fund. The Fund will be created within Gregg’s beloved Beta Pi Endowment, and the revenues generated by the Fund will be awarded to Beta Pi leaders to enable them to attend Pike University events.  Each award will be designated a Gregg J. Ormond Leadership Award, assuring that his name will live in perpetuity.
