What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Beta Upsilon Chi (BYX) is a national fraternity that equips and empowers college Christian men to live faithfully and lead courageously. Lasting far beyond our college years, BYX (pronounced "Bucs") provides lifelong community that promotes spiritual growth, social connections and selfless leadership. Just as iron sharpens iron, it's in this eternal brotherhood we sharpen one another -- preparing tomorrow's fathers, business leaders, teachers and preachers to boldly impact our communities for Christ.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Everywhere, every day, BYX men are raising families, leading organizations and strengthening churches to impact our communities for Christ.

- Spiritual growth: With Jesus Christ as our common bond, we provide opportunities for spiritual growth to help members become the men God intended.

- Social connections: United by the values we share, members develop friends for life and brothers for eternity.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Aug 01 - Jul 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
