The Trustee Society is the premier annual giving club of the Delta Chi Educational Foundation. Donors earn status in the Trustee Society by making unrestricted contributions to the Delta Chi Educational Foundation’s General Fund. These dollars assist in supporting DCEF operations that provide administrative and managerial oversight of the educational activities, programs, and scholarships offered to our members.
These dollars, in addition to operations, are used where the need is greatest for Fraternity leadership programming.
In 2017 the new Emerging Leaders Academy benefited from a $30,000 grant from the DCEF’s General Fund, which would not have been possible without Unrestricted Giving.
The DCEF has raised over $1,000,000 in support of the A’s Academy since its inception in 2006. In 2016 alone, the DCEF granted over $90,000, representing 70% of the program’s total cost, ensuring every chapter “A” could attend expense free. All of these programs have been supported by the Trustee Society members.
How to Join
All donors have the ability to join the Trustee Society.
Recognition is awarded to those who have given $1,000 or more to the DCEF General Fund within any calendar year.
Donors who set up recurring gifts on a monthly, quarterly, annual basis, or make a gift in one lump sum, gain membership in the Society. Recognition is given once the full $1,000 amount has been received.
Trustee Society members receive a special lapel pin and are celebrated through various online, print, and event mediums including the upcoming Trustee Society Experience.
Once Trustee Society level is reached in a calendar year, the donor will retain this status through the following year.
Trustee Society Experience
Exclusively for Trustee Society donors, who annually give $1,000 or more to the Foundation’s General Fund. This complimentary excursion is our way of saying “thank you” for your generosity and financial support to Delta Chi. Trustee Society donors may bring one, complimentary, family guest.
The Foundation offers a one-of-a-kind, priceless experience, that you can only get through your association in Delta Chi, and participation as a Trustee Society donor.
In 2018 we took 54 Trustees and their guests, by motor-coach, on a half-day excursion to The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado – site of Delta Chi’s historic 1929 Convention where we became the first Fraternity to officially abolish “Hell Week”.
Don’t miss out on the next, priceless brotherhood experience!
