About

Be True: Building the Foundation for the Future of SAE. 50% of your donation will go directly to the Chapter of your choice's Chapter Education Fund. These funds help Chapters give out scholarships to their members or send men to Leadership School and other educationally based SAE events.


If you are an alumnus of a chapter that is currently dormant, you may still donate to a CEF of your choice, however you can also select 100% Annual Loyalty Fund which will support educational programs, national scholarships, and the Levere Memorial Temple.


The chapter in good standing that raises the most money will get their school's flag flown at the Levere Memorial Temple for one month and receive a custom diamond shaped violet colored first place trophy. Each district will have a winner and receive a crystal trophy for having raised the most money in their district.


If you want to make a difference in SAE and in your home chapter, support their education by giving today!


*Incentives will not be shipped until after the campaign has ended.

Updates
We wanted you to know first.

We were blown away by the response we received to our True Gentleman Challenge. With over 500 donors and over $80,000.00 raised; we consider this challenge a success. Thank you for contributing to the growth of your chapter’s endowed Chapter Education Fund!

These chapter-specific funds designated to Chapter Education Funds are invested and produce a spendable portion on an annual basis that can be used to provide academic scholarships, leadership school tuition grants, and support other wholly educational purposes. If you are unsure who manages your chapter’s Chapter Education Fund or would like more information please contact Meg Walker at 847-424-3013 or mwalker@sae.net.

If you selected incentives or are one of the top chapters listed below, you can expect to receive your materials in the next two-three weeks.

Thank you for your generosity and zeal!

We also invite you to fill out this brief survey: https://goo.gl/forms/j8aDQmOpz

With 10 hours remaining, we're 75% to our goal and have received over 500 donations from 164 chapters. Way to go! Thanks to donors and volunteers like you 24 chapters have met or exceeded our $700/chapter goal. 

We're almost there!

Michigan Gamma is still in the lead for the top chapter realm-wide with Oklahoma Kappa not far behind.
