"There is a name, a magic name, that makes our young hearts glow,

and drives the shadows from our lives, as sunlight melts the snow,

and if perchance you hear this name, where ever you may be,

deep drain a cup of ruby wine to the health of DKE.

To the health of DKE, our dear old DKE,

deep drain a cup,

of ruby wine,

to the health of DKE."




The Ruby Cup Foundation was formed in 1992 as an educational and charitable endeavor designed to develop in the members of Delta Kappa Epsilon an appropriate emphasis on scholastic accomplishment, leadership, and continual involvement.


The Foundation is incorporated as a tax-exempt, non-profit educational and charitable corporation under the laws of  Indiana and is guided by a board of directors comprised of alumni of Delta Kappa Epsilon.


Its general purposes are:

1. To encourage broad alumni involvement in the development of student members.

2. To provide educational benefits to alumni and student members.

3. To support and strengthen the educational mission of the University.

4. To assist deserving students in continuing and completing their college education.

5. Through scholarship awards, enhance leadership skills, build and develop character, values and good citizenship, and encourage participation and leadership in civic and campus activities.


Gifts to the Ruby Cup Foundation are fully tax-deductible and can be donor-designated to fund scholarships, leadership experiences, alumni and student communications—any activity that supports the Foundation’s General Purposes.  Your gift is important.  Your participation is important.  Thank you for supporting the brotherhood of Delta Kappa Epsilon.
