Beta Mu Link B e t a t h e t a P i a t P u r d u e u n i v e r s i t y • w w w . P u r d u e B e t a . c o m Fall 2016 I t's a good time to be a Beta at Purdue. The fall brings a new year and a fresh start for our undergraduate membership, and I'm excited to see what Beta Mu will accomplish this year. To add to the excitement, a very generous brother has issued a $250,000 matching gift challenge to his Beta Mu brothers to spark new and increased giving to the Return to Dominance campaign. He already made a pledge and is stepping forward once again for the good of the campaign. He will match every new dollar donated to the campaign up to $250,000 between now and December 31, 2016. The campaign stands to gain $500,000 ($250,000 in new gifts matched by $250,000 from this brother), which would bring us much closer to our $5 million campaign goal. Success Vital in Securing Future of Beta Mu We are extremely grateful to the alumni who have gotten us to this point. Because of their generosity, we are over 75% to our goal, and the matching gift challenge will really help this campaign. However, it is only with equally generous gifts from the rest of our alumni that we can finish the campaign and ensure our Chapter House is funded and the remaining updates completed to be competitive for the future. We need broad participation to be successful. The average Greek fundraising campaign has 25% participation. We are currently at 14%. We need you to participate today. generous alumnus Issues $250,000 Matching Gift Challenge Double Your Giving Power Now Community service with TedX.
