|Why Give to the Trust Annual Fund?|
Over the past two years, we have shared some of the seismic shifts which have taken place in the lives of the students who populate our colleges and the young men who are now active Brothers. Expectations from our host institutions, parents, and our undergraduate Brothers have necessitated a renewed commitment to value-added programming at our Alphas. To meet this need, we have invested hard work, countless hours of volunteer time, and generous financial resources from The Chi Psi Educational Trust, Inc.
All of these important investments are beginning to pay dividends. Last year ten Alphas were nominated for the Trust’s Goodbody Award for scholastic excellence, a record number. Chi Psi’s membership has grown by 19% in the past five years, and we have successfully re-colonized Alphas at Mississippi, Wesleyan, and Yale. Both the Wesleyan and Yale colonizations were driven by students seeking to bring Chi Psi programming and values to those campuses.
The programs offered under the Program for Excellence banner not only enhance the undergraduate experience, but also cultivate life-long capabilities that enable our Brothers to excel in their careers and become effective community leaders. There is an undisputed need for what Chi Psi is offering young men in our Alphas.
We cannot continue to have a positive impact on undergraduates without the generosity of Chi Psi alumni. The increased demand for programming and consultative services translates into greater financial needs. I hope you will join me in making a tax-deductible gift to The Chi Psi Educational Trust. It would be immediately used to fund educational initiatives for your Alpha.
Our mission is to provide the very best Chi Psi experience for the men in our Alphas. Continue to make this happen by being a part of the 2013-2014 Annual Fund Challenge.
