It was a true celebration of our 90 years of brotherhood at Mississippi State and we are thankful for the brothers who were able to make the trip back to Starkville. e stunning chapter house renovations have made Gamma eta the envy on campus, and although construction is complete, we are still fundraising to reach our $1.5 million campaign goal.

To date, $42,000 has been raised from 23 new donors. It's not too late to make twice the impact on our campaign. We have extended the deadline to encourage alumni to take advantage of this challenge and double the impact of your gi. Act now before it's too late! Campaign Nears $1.2 Million e capital campaign has raised $1,199,140 from 168 donors to date. ese gis have provided a state-of-the-art facility for our collegiate brothers and will help us compete with other chapters for the best and brightest new members at Mississippi State. While 168 is a large number of donors, more than 1,000 Gamma eta alumni have not yet contributed to the campaign. We want to make sure our chapter stays strong and we know you want to see this as well. If you have been waiting to make a commitment, now is the time. Please remember that all donors pledging $2,500 or more will have their names inscribed on a plaque prominently displayed in the chapter house.

Please help us make this house your home. $41.67 per Month We must raise an additional $300,860. If 120 more brothers could commit to pledge $2,500 over a five-year period, we would achieve this goal and increase our campaign participation to 21 percent. A pledge of $2,500 is more affordable than you may think. Broken into monthly payments, this comes to $41.67 a month, or $1.38 a day. Payments can be made effortless through our online giving at www.missstatepikes. kintera.org/donate. Each Gamma eta brother is invited to participate in the A Legendary Past, Ensuring Our Future: Celebrating 90 Years at Mississippi State campaign.
