Our experiences, education, and degrees from Indiana University have carried us all a long way in life. Our fraternity involvement certainly enhanced our college life and created lifelong memories and friends.
Today we only hear news about the troubles of fraternities, which paints a one-sided view. What we do not hear about are the millions of volunteer hours Greeks give to their communities along with the millions of dollars they raise for worthy causes and charities. The Greek system at IU is strong and very relevant to thousands of students, including our Alpha Iota brothers.
Our undergraduate Chapter stays strong by focusing on brotherhood, leadership, and scholarship. The Alpha Iota Educational Foundation focuses on encouraging good academic achievement by providing individual scholarships that our undergraduates can compete for through a formal application process. This past year, we were able to grant $14,000 of scholarships to five students (four at $3,000, and one at $2,000) from our scholarship funds.
We had a very successful campaign last year, raising over $30,000 from 72 alumni, including a major gift from Mike Mercuri ’79, who said, “I’m grateful I can contribute. Apart from the lessons and opportunities that came from my time at Theta Chi, it was all about the guys who welcomed us and energized us to get involved and take on leadership roles in the house. That made for a richer experience which I’m grateful for.”
Please support our Chapter by joining the 72 brothers who gave in 2018 and contributing to the 2019 Alpha Iota Educational Foundation Annual Campaign.
Our campaign goal this year is to exceed $30,000 in contributions and increase our donor participation to over 100 brothers. I am asking you to help us meet our goals by making a donation today. Your contribution is fully tax deductible, so please make a gift today by clicking on the “Make a Gift” button on the right hand side of this page or printing and mailing the gift form available here.
