Campaign Passes $7 Million and Surpasses Unrestricted Goal

By June 23, 2012News

The $10 million Changing Lives Campaign has now raised more than $7 million to support Chi Phi students, Chapters and programs.  Equally as exciting is the fact that the campaign has surpassed one of its sub-goals.  Chi Phi originally aimed to raise $2.5 million of the overall $10 million goal for unrestricted support to be used where the need is greatest.  Unrestricted money is often the most difficult to raise, but it has surpassed that goal and raised more than $2.9 million in unrestricted funds.

All of this is possible thanks to the extraordinary support and generosity Chi Phi continues to receive from loyal Alumni, parents, undergraduates and friends.

Since the public launch of the campaign at the 146th Chi Phi Congress one year ago, Chi Phi has made great strides.  A few of the significant activities include:

  •  Eta Chapter at the University of Georgia is participating in the Educational Trust’s housing grant program, and they have raised more than $1.6 million for the educational-qualifying areas of their new chapter house.
  • The following chapters have raised more than $50,000 for their Chapter Excellence Fund: Alpha, Alpha Delta, Alpha Zeta, Alpha-Tau, Gamma, Iota, Theta Delta and Xi Delta.
  • Alumni have committed more than $150,000 for academic scholarships.  Most recently, Chi Phi received a $25,000 gift from Dr. Robert Christopher, Pi 1954.
  • The Xi Delta Alumni Association has pledged and contributed more than $20,000.
  • Brothers have already pledged $50,000 for the Owen Parry Fund.
  • For the first time ever, Chi Phi had more than 50 donors participate at the Gladfelter Circle level this year by making an annual gift of $2,000 or more.
  • This year undergraduates and young alumni contributed $8,781 through the Men of 1824 program with strong showings at Delta Zeta, Eta Theta, Lambda Zeta, Rho, Tau Zeta, Wisconsin-La Crosse Colony.
  • The Chi Phi Fund enjoyed a 4.5% response rate this year – another record for Chi Phi.

“We remain committed to enhancing and endowing the Chi Phi programs that create academic success, build better men, promote Chapter excellence and preserve our distinction and heritage as the oldest gentleman’s social fraternity in America,” stated National Campaign Co-Chairman Christopher J. Shuler, Alpha Zeta 1984.  “There’s certainly more work to do, but we’re very optimistic about the future. ”
