Spring 2018 Update from Gamma Alumni Assc

Alumni – The following is the first update for Spring 2018.


The chapter has 48 live-ins for the Spring. Spring rush has garnered another solid class with 15 Spring pledges. This builds on the spectacular class of 21 they initiated in the Fall. This gives us approximately 88 Brothers and Pledges for the Spring. Should have another 50 or so live-ins for the Fall.

Gamma CIF Tax Deductible Donation Opportunity

Our alumni donor list has grown to six (Thanks to Cory Dean, Frank Winton Jr, Nick Travaglini, Jim Lucey and Steve Pas) who have joined me in the Gamma CIF matching fundraising opportunity listed below. So far including my donation, we have raised $1,300 towards our CIF. Reminder that we have a $ for $ match made by an alum up to $2K. Overall, fundraising stands at $2,600 w/match. Donation match will be honored through next Wed, 1/31/18.

Here is my previous email with donation information.

Our Chapter has been funding 3 – $700/ea ($2,100 total) undergrad scholarships per year for the past few years. The majority of the funding is available from the money that is in our Gamma Chapter Investment Fund through our National Foundation. Our current balance of $37K allows us to disburse $1,481 (4% annual disbursement allowance) annually. The remaining balance is covered by individual alumni donations or our Alumni Association bank account. We would like to continue to grow our CIF balance. All donations are tax deductible. In addition, we have an alum that has pledged to match dollar for dollar (up to $2K) any donations made by alumni before 1/31/18.
