Our Extraordinary Fraternity House Still Requires Your Financial Support

$350,000 Needed to Reach $2 Million Goal

 

The dramatic impression created upon entering our new fraternity house cannot be overstated. The bronze great seal, marble staircase, and towering marble mantle with

fraternity crest would be appropriate for a five-star hotel.

 

Fifty years ago we chose to cut back on construction and furnishings in order to complete the house. We had a lot of work to do over the next several years. We learned from

that mistake because it was more expensive to do it later. This time, we did it right the first time!

 

We still need $298,506 to meet our $2 million goal. Increasing our percentage of alumni participants should ensure success. Typical Alabama campaigns have participation

rate of 25%, with the highest being about 50%. Our current alumni percentage is 16%. We hope the class competition fills the gap.

 

We are surprised to be lagging behind in alumni participation. Any pledge is 100% tax deductible and can be spread over five years, enabling everybody to participate at

some level (e.g., $50 for five years equals $250).

 

At this point in the campaign we need every brother to do two simple things:

1. Pledge an amount, no matter how small.

2. Contact your pledge brothers to urge their participation—at any level.

 

David Adams ’89 is spearheading our initiation class competition for naming rights and he will be glad to provide details, advise where your class stands, and get you

involved. We still need everybody’s help. Please be part of the legacy we are leaving to Omicron!

 

Fraternally,

"I would ask a Brother to please contribute toward what we are trying to achieve. We are on pace to reach our goal, but we cannot do it without more support. Everybody can give something. It is wrong to think that any amount isn’t important or enough."
