Title V Paragraphs 54 Affiliated Corporation
Any chapter that now has or hereafter establishes any affiliated corporation that is supportive of the goals of the chapter shall provide the Executive Offices with copies of the Articles, Bylaws, and any amendments thereto of such corporations and shall furnish such financial and other informational reports as may be required by the Executive Offices. All such corporations shall be non-profit corporations and shall contain in the Articles of Incorporation these provisions: (a) no income or profit arising from the operations of the corporation are to inure to the benefit of any private person; (b) upon dissolution of the corporation, any assets remaining after payment of debts shall be given to The Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity, Phi Kappa Tau Foundation, or any of their subsidiaries or successors. In the event that all the foregoing are non-existent, then to some other appropriate non-profit entity qualified under Section 501 (c)(3); (c) that the closing of the Resident Council is a cause of automatic dissolution of the corporation as a failure of purpose. Surplus funds of a house corporation, a Graduate Council or a Resident Council shall be invested only in United States government securities or financial institutions providing adequately insured deposit accounts. Any funds realized by virtue of dissolution of any affiliate corporation or chapter which are given to The Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity are to be separately accounted for by the National Council and should the opportunity arise to reestablish the chapter at that institution, funds at least equal to the amount deposited will be committed to the re-colonization effort.
