SIGMA CHI FRATERNITY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA | EST. 1876 FALL 2018 BELL CHAPTER ENDOWMENT CHALLENGE Alumni Support AcAdemic SucceSS of iotA iotA I ota Iota's endowment campaign for the Thomas Cowan Bell Chapter Challenge is 40% complete with nearly $100K of the $250K goal pledged by generous Iota Iota brothers. This designation among a select few chapters in Sigma Chi provides enhanced values- based leadership and scholarship benefits for undergraduate brothers. The campaign, led by Brothers Bob Loftin '79 and Bill Stiers '86, aims to establish a foundation of support for current and future generations of Alabama Sigs. When compared to non-Bell undergraduate chapters, Bell Chapter recipients: • Average a higher overall cumulative GPA. • Have 58% more brothers on the Dean's List. • Have 63% more brothers active in campus organizations. • Have 84% more brothers within academic honor societies. • Contribute 400 more hours of community service per year. • Raise $7,400 more per chapter for philanthropy. We are excited for the Iota Iota Chapter to be a leader in the fraternity with this initiative. If endowed, the Iota Iota Chapter will be the: • First chapter in the state of Alabama to receive this designation. • Second chapter in the SEC to attain these benefits. • Twelfth chapter in the Sigma Chi Fraternity to have a Bell Chapter Endowment (currently 242 active chapters). We hope you will join us in supporting this exciting endeavor through a tax-deductible donation through the Sigma Chi Foundation.
