Every day your actions convey dozens of messages—from the message you send your child when you help with their homework to the message you send your community each time you recycle, or the message you send a stranger by holding open a door. Whether you realize it or not, these messages define who you are and how you’re perceived.
At Ohio Northern University, Delta Sigma Phi members are defined by their commitment to academic excellence, leadership, and building men of strong character. These achievements send messages to us, as alumni, that the undergraduates who make up Alpha Eta Chapter today strive to uphold our commitment to Better men, Better Lives.
Have you considered what message you are sending these young men when you volunteer to serve on the ACB, attend an alumni event, or submit your annual contribution?
During the 2016-2017 Annual Campaign, 36 alumni sent their message of support that helped us raise $7,667. Their message was heard and, thanks to their help, we were able to provide three brothers free room and board for obtaining the 3.8 GPA scholarship and assist with travel accommodations for four brothers to attend this year’s National Convention in Baltimore, Maryland.
This fall we are raising funds to:
Continue our organization of our Centennial Celebration in the year 2020. We will be celebrating a milestone, that only a few other chapters hold, of being an active chapter for 100 continuous years. The event will take place on February 14-16, 2020 at The Lima Civic Center, which has already been booked, and we will be hosting a meet-and-greet that Friday night and a celebratory dinner on Saturday with music, drawings, dinner, and speakers.
What message will you send our undergraduate brothers this fall? Just as alumni exhibited their commitment last fall, I hope you will support the 2017-2018 Annual Campaign in our efforts to reach our $12,000 goal. With a $50 gift, you will become a member of the Carnation Society. If $50 is more than you would like to contribute this year, we appreciate a gift of any size. No matter what amount you are able to give, know you are making an impact in the lives of undergraduate brothers, offering immediate resources directed to Alpha Eta’s current needs and opportunities.
To contribute, click “Support the Campaign” on the right hand side of this page. All contributions will be managed by the ACB to ensure the chapter continues to flourish. You can break your gift into monthly, quarterly or semi-annual payments. You can also set up recurring payments to automatically charge your credit card or draft payments from your checking account.
Just as every undergraduate plays an active role in sharing the message of where our chapter is going, each of our 914 alumni can demonstrate the value we place in our 97-year history through contributing to the 2017-2018 Annual Campaign.
