Endowment Campaign 2022-2026

There are so many great things happening with our beloved Fraternity.  Membership has rebounded from the impact of the pandemic.  Our undergraduates are returning to their campuses with renewed excitement about Theta Xi.  And, alumni are supporting the Fraternity in record numbers.

And on Founders Day this year, we announce one more GREAT thing.

Theta Xi Foundation is launching a new endowment campaign.  The “Building Tomorrow’s Leaders …Today” campaign.  This is a capital campaign to raise $3,000,000 for an endowment to permanently fund the Vredenburgh Presidents Academy, the Rising Stars Academy, and the Newell District Leadership Academy.  These leadership and educational programs impact the lives of hundreds of our undergraduates every single year.  These young brothers learn valuable leadership skills that help them improve our chapters, grow membership, and make an impact in their communities.

That is why the Foundation and the Fraternity have embarked on this campaign.  Since early 2021, a team of dedicated alumni have worked on the “quiet phase” of Building Tomorrow’s Leaders… Today.  This team has secured more than $2,200,000 of commitments from our brothers.

And now, we are launching the public phase to achieve the overall objective of raising $3,000,000! 

Brothers can make a one-time contribution, or pledge a gift over 5 years — making an annual commitment to the campaign.  Alumni Associations have also stepped up with their own contributions.  You can make a gift online in just minutes.  Click Here to Give Now.

Or, you can download and print a Theta Xi Campaign Pledge Form.

No matter how large or modest your gift, your participation in this effort is what matters most.

Join us in endowing our future, so we can give this gift of brotherhood to generations of Theta Xi men!
