Alpha Gamma of Sigma Chi, Inc.

2016 Alumni Giving Campaign

Go here to donate by credit card:  http://www.fmaosu.com/shop/annual-giving-campaign/

Hello Alpha Gamma Brothers,
We are writing to you in hopes you will again support our House Corporation’s 2016 Alumni Giving Campaign.  As before, the purpose of this campaign is to grow and sustain Alpha Gamma Chapter’s membership and longevity by providing the Chapter with a better physical chapter house.

 

Your 2015 alumni contributions totaling $12,689 were wisely used to install new bunk beds in all of the rooms throughout the chapter facility.

 

Here are few other positive facts:

 

For the first time in 29 years, Sigma Chi Headquarters bestowed its highest honor on the active chapter, the Peterson Significant Chapter Award.  Named for 38th Grand Consul J. Dwight Peterson, INDIANA 1919, the award recognizes excellent, but not impossible performance by chapters in all major areas of operation and programming. For many years, the Peterson plaque has been a symbol of dedication, idealism and achievement.

 

There are currently 110 Active Brothers in the Chapter.

We are the only OSU fraternity to operate continuously for 134 years!

Our House Corporation presently has zero 3rd party debt (we continue to utilize our own Endowment Fund and have successfully borrowed from ourselves and paid ourselves back with interest on three different capital projects over the recent years).

Derby Days raised $36,000 of which $20,000 was donated to the Huntsman Cancer Institute.  The remaining $16,000 was to the Recruitment Chairman’s cousin battling cancer.

Finally the University awarded the active chapter with the Community Service Award for All of Greek Life.

 Alpha Gamma of Sigma Chi, Inc. ~  2015 Annual Giving Campaign

      EX badge small 2

Dear Brother,

We are writing to you in hopes you will again support our House Corporation’s 2015 Alumni Giving Campaign. As before, the purpose of this campaign is to grow and sustain Alpha Gamma Chapter’s membership and longevity by providing the Chapter with a better physical chapter house. 

 
The chapter house at 260 East 15th is now 60 years old! Your 2014 alumni contributions totaling $16,400 were wisely used to help with the $122,000 total kitchen remodel just completed this month. This kitchen renovation will enhance the entire Alpha Gamma experience and is certain to help with recruitment. 
 
 
Here are few other positive facts:
 
 • 113 Active Brothers in the Chapter, and the only OSU fraternity to operate continuously for 133 years! 
 
•Our House Corporation presently has zero 3rd party debt (we don’t owe Sigma Chi or any bank). 
 
• The 2012 loan from Alpha Gamma’s own Endowment Fund will be fully repaid in one more year (we borrowed $100,000 from ourselves for plumbing/restroom overhaul in 2012). 
 
• In the past 20 years, the House Corp. has spent over $975,000 on house improvements, with over $850,000 of it coming from House Corp. operating funds, and nearly $125,000 from our alumni!! 
 

Each of your contributions has really helped House Corp. make these positive steps forward. Thank you. 

 
One more important item: The Chapter and the House Corp. will be hosting an Open House for this year’s Homecoming, at the Chapter House, starting @ 6:00PM on Friday, October 9th. Plan to join in, see what your dollars have done, and reminisce with actives, brothers, spouses/significant others.

Brothers,

I’m writing you in hopes you will again support House Corporation’s 2014 Annual Giving campaign. As with previous years’ efforts, the purpose of this campaign is to grow and sustain Alpha Gamma’s membership through a better physical house. Last year’s funds were wisely used to:

• Repaint every room, including closets and common areas.
• In addition, we replaced the freezer and the ice maker.
• Finally, we refurbished the sand volleyball court (the only court in the OSU Greek System).

Your donations absolutely help keep the Alpha Gamma looking sharp and competitive!

To date, the active chapter is made up of:

• 104 active brothers with 40 brothers living in the house; and
• We recently pinned 12 pledges for this Fall Semester.

In addition, Alpha Gamma was named “Most Improved Chapter” at the Spring Greek Banquet and it led all Greek organizations last year in philanthropy raising $15,000.

Brothers,

I’m writing you in hopes you will again support House Corporation’s 2012 Annual Giving campaign. As with previous years’ efforts, the purpose of this campaign is to grow and sustain Alpha Gamma’s membership through a better physical house.

The belief is that a better house and a better living experience will be much more appealing to active and potential brothers and consequently:

• Membership will grow;
• Membership will be more easily sustained; and
• It will allow House Corporation to drive higher rents.

House Corp firmly believes this strategy is working and we’re happy to report the house is thriving:

• There are currently 114 active brothers;
• 41 brothers are living in house; and
• The active chapter initiated 42 young men last year!

The fundraising goal for ’11 was to raise $12,000 and we got very close with a total of $11,221. My hope is we can raise 13,000 for 2012. The $11,221 raised last year was used in the overall $150,000 renovation that was just completed and included some of the following improvements:
• All original cast iron plumbing was removed from interior of house.
• All bathrooms were taken to the studs and walls replaced/rebuilt due to years of leaks. Updated finishes include Corian counter tops and porcelain tile on floors & walls.
• Integrated dresser and closet systems were installed in all rooms.
• New light fixtures were installed in all rooms, the kitchen, the dining room and the halls.
• The bedrooms and dining room were repainted.
• The main sewer line into Summit St., the back flow prevention valve, the sidewalk along Summit to 15th and the Entry sidewalk were all replaced.
• The parking lot retaining wall and the drainage lines around the House were all rebuilt.
The bottom line is your previous years’ donations have absolutely helped grow and sustain membership. And, the donations continue to rise. As a quick recap of the past four year: 2009 donations were
$7,395; 2010 donations were $7,938; and 2011 donations were $11,221.

The list of brothers who generously gave last year is listed below. Thank you for your support and the many kind notes.

Again, please consider giving to this effort now and into the future. Alpha Gamma has a rich history that we’ve all benefited from in many ways.

Please send your check to me, Matt Berry at 3901 Tarrington Lane, Columbus, Ohio 43220. Contributions are not tax deductible. Please make checks payable to Alpha Gamma of Sigma Chi, Inc.

Alpha Gamma of Sigma Chi

2011 Annual Giving Campaign

Brothers,

I’m reaching out to you in hopes you will again support House Corporation’s 2011 Annual Giving campaign. As with last year’s effort, the purpose of this campaign is to grow and sustain Alpha Gamma’s membership through a better physical house.

The belief is that a better house and a better living experience will be much more appealing to active and potential brothers and consequently:

• Membership will grow;
• Membership will be more easily sustained; and
• It will allow House Corporation to drive higher rents.

Other chapters, namely the Betas, raise $30,000 per year every year.

The goal for ’11 is to raise $12,000. If 120 brothers donate $100 per year, we’ll be able to reach our goal. In ’09, we raised $7,395 and in 2010 we raised $7,938. Last year’s contributions were used to:

• Restore and duplicate original Caniff artwork. The originals are now on loan and being displayed at the new Union.
• Replace several areas of flooring throughout the house.
• Resurface important kitchen walls.

Bottom line is those generous dollars bettered the house and made it more competitive.

The list of brothers who generously gave are listed below. Thank you for your support and the many kind notes and memories many brothers, wives and widows shared with me. Gene Yates, Alpha Gamma 1944, sent an original Milton Caniff to the house he said he found at the house when he was moving out. It was in great condition and was added to the house’s collection. Madelon Wright generously donated and wrote me a note about her husband, Jack Wright, Alpha Gamma 1940. In her note, she wrote, “In loving memory of my husband Jack Wright 1918 to 2002. A life loyal Sig and Alpha Gamma Consul in 1939-1940. May you all be loyal gentlemen with integrity as he was.” Thank you Gene and Madelon and thank you again to everyone below.

Again, please consider giving to this effort now and into the future. Alpha Gamma has a rich history that we’ve all benefited from in many ways.

Please make checks payable to Alpha Gamma of Sigma Chi, Inc.

Please send your check to me,
Matt Berry

Contributions are not tax deductible.

In Hoc Signo Vinces,
