The Capital Campaign continues to experience unprecedented success. We now have over $400,000 in donations and multi-year pledges, bringing us closer to achieving our goal and securing the future of the Delta Chapter for the decades to come.
To date, we have received donations and pledges from 125 alumni, but we still need more of you to join the cause! If you have not yet made a pledge or donation, it’s not too late. You don’t have to give a lot, but as we have been saying repeatedly throughout this effort, “Don’t be a zero!”
Please contact BOT Finance Chair John Sweeney for more information about the Capital Campaign, or to make a pledge or donation. His email is JohnHSweeney@gmail.com.
Capital Campaign donors are listed in the annual summer Delta Dispatch. In addition, we are offering big incentives for donors who go above and beyond in their contributions. For starters, annual donors of $1,000 or more will have their names listed on a plaque at the ATO house.
Donors who contribute at least $5,000 over 5 years (what we call the “5-in-5 pledge”) will have their college ATO portrait featured on a Rebuilders’ Society composite photo, to be displayed prominently in the new Great Room. So far we have 49 alumni who are on track to be included on this composite. We hope more of you will join them!
The naming rights for every room in the house are being offered in exchange for donations ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. At this year’s Fall Reunion, Brother William Schmidt ’66 was surprised by several of his classmates who had pooled together their donations to name the Brother Room on his behalf. A permanent plaque for the William A. Schmidt Brother Room will be installed once the house renovations are complete.
Other communal spaces and bedrooms remain available for naming. Please contact John Sweeney for further information about room sponsorship opportunities.
