Make a contribution now to be sure 2019 is a successful academic year for our members and chapters. Show Your Support for Delta Chi Today T he Army of Donors campaign is a three-year push to build up our donor base, to strengthen our annual unrestricted giving (general fund). Unrestricted gifts are what the Foundation uses to run all of our programs and services. Providing tax-deductible giving accounts to all of our chapters (CSA/ECHI) in every state requires a significant amount of legal paperwork; same for accounting-processes to keep track of these individual accounts, such as named scholarships. Additionally, over one-sixth of our annual budget is allocated to supplement costs that the Fraternity incurs when putting on leadership programs, like the "A"s' Academy. Paying professional staff to raise this money, along with additional funding initiatives, and managing day-to-day operations is another consideration. Making an unrestricted gift to the Foundation serves the greater good of Delta Chi. In a sense, you are a part of the success of every house build, every individual scholarship, and each leadership academy. It is a noble and unselfish thing to give to our beloved Delta Chi, and we recognize you as part of our ARMY OF DONORS. Our plan is to grow our donor base to generate $500,000 annually, by December 31, 2020. Once we reach this benchmark, with continued stewardship and annual renewals, we will shift into an endowment campaign, soliciting transformational gifts, which will provide annual operating income in perpetuity, as well as grow the impact and scope of our leadership and scholarship programs for all our members. Please, join us today with your annual gift!
