Tuesday, November 29th was a huge success! We're asked you to give back and you did just that. We want to thank all of our matching donors and all of you who gave on our Day of Giving. We had our most successful giving day ever, not only in total dollars raised, but in first time donors, student Members and total individual donors.
A few Phi Sigma Pi Alumni are sweetening the pot with matching gifts so this is the best day of the year to give.
Meet our matching donors:
Chris and Ellie are graduates of the Tau Chapter ('11 & '13) at East Carolina University and are on the Executive Board of the Eastern North Carolina Alumni Chapter. As Leadership in Action Champions, Certified Members and Facilitators they encourage undergraduates to participate in the program by facilitating multiple Modules for their home Chapter each year.
If 25 collegiate Brothers make a gift on November 29, 2016 Chris and Ellie will donate $250 in support of the Foundation! The Crouts give back to Phi Sigma Pi to provide opportunities for future Brothers and they encourage current and future Alumni to contribute to the Foundation and Fraternity in any way they can.
A 2011 graduate of the Beta Delta Chapter at North Carolina State University, Zach has been a Foundation Member for 3 years! As an LiA facilitator and Member of Eastern North Carolina Alumni Chapter, he enjoys attending local and national events where he can catch up with Brothers from around the country.
This year if we reach $1,500 raised, Zach will make a gift of $1000 to the Foundation! He is joining in on the Day of Giving because being a matching donor is a fun way to encourage others to make a gift to the Foundation.
As a 2012 graduate of the Epsilon Xi Chapter at East Tennessee State University and current Alumni Vice President of Southern Appalachian Alumni Chapter, Josh loves taking part in Phi Sigma Pi programs! He is a Leadership in Action Facilitator and became Certified during the 2015-2016 academic year. This past year, he has assisted the newly established Eta Theta Chapter at the University of Tennessee- Knoxville in receiving their Charter!
Now Josh wants to see the success of the Foundation and Fraternity continue by being a matching donor. Once 50 donors make their gift, Josh will generously give $500 to the Foundation!
Our anonymous donor relates Phi Sigma Pi with the word “home”. This Fraternity is a place they feel they will be treated like family, no matter the circumstance. It was through Phi Sigma Pi they met some of the best people they know that encourage this donor to uphold their commitment to the Tripod.
Our anonymous donor has pledged $2,000 if we reach $6,000 before midnight! They hope that others will see their matching donation as a way to make their own gifts have even more impact, especially if they’ve thought about giving before, but never have.
