Alumni Support Key to Chapter's Success Although times are uncertain and there are many causes worthy of your support, we know that Indiana Beta is deserving of as much alumni backing as possible. As our finances have taken a bit of a hit because of the pandemic, and knowing we still need to fund this parking lot, we need you. In times of need, we know we'll always have our brothers to lean on and our ΣAE memories to look back on. A gift to Indiana Beta's capital campaign will provide future generations the same life- shaping experiences you were afforded thanks to alumni before you. Take a peek inside this newsletter to see what a first-time gift or an additional gift will support. If you've already given and cannot give more at this time, we understand. Instead, we ask that you review the donor list on page 2 and reach out to a brother from your era whose name you don't see—encourage him to reflect on what his ΣAE experience has meant to him. Together, we can secure Sigma Alpha Epsilon's legacy at Purdue.
