Gentlemen, We are writing to you to encourage each and every one of you to write a $100 check to Alpha Gamma of Sigma Chi, Inc. If you don’t have the $$, maybe you have time? We also need Brothers to step up and join House Corporation. The same 8-10 guys cannot continue to carry the load.
We could go into details about the how the House Corporation will be in the red by the end of the year but the simple answer is that we have never been very good at asking our alumni to get in the habit of contributing toward an annual fund every year. We know we had a fire drill fundraiser back in 2004 to save the Chapter House. This fundraiser is to help House Corporation fulfill its mission by maintaining the house in a condition suitable to perpetuate the institution we know as Sigma Chi. We know times are tight, but let’s face it we all have fond memories of our college days with most of them being centered around Sigma Chi. If you get this email, then you know we have made many improvements over the past few years to our 50+ year old fortress. We need your continued support.
Payable to: Alpha Gamma of Sigma Chi, Inc
Please send your donation to: Peter Asmar, Treasur 42 Ridgecrest Drive Chagrin Falls, OH 44022

This is a required great read and please take the 5 mins to read it.
Sigma Chi-Ritual and Recruitment – Back to the Basics. Identifying the problems facing the Greek system and Sigma Chi today. Why do we have a Ritual, and do Brothers really understand why the Ritual is so important to us? Recruitment: The quality of our members and our organization feed upon and perpetuate one another.

This is a great video about the recolonizing efforts of the Delta Kappa Chapter at Bowling Green. They hosted a reunion on 9/26/09, over 200 brothers attended and $300,000 was raised, and 45 alumni brothers committed their time and efforts to directly help recolonize the chapter. Thanks go out to Brother Greg Eyerly for his leadership efforts. AMAZING what a committed alumni group can achieve!
