1869 Club Chapter Challenge

The 1869 Club Chapter Challenge is an opportunity for Sigma Nu chapters to show loyalty and pride in Sigma Nu Fraternity through competition. All collegiate members will be asked to consider a gift of $18.69 or more as part of the challenge.

Why is the 1869 Club Chapter Challenge Important? 

  1. For Sigma Nu to remain strong and deliver a transformational experience for collegiate members, the Fraternity needs resources to innovate and deliver the best leadership development and educational programs.  
  2. Sigma Nu alumni want to know if collegiate brothers believe in Sigma Nu and value their Fraternity experience. A gift to the 1869 Club is a vote of confidence. Your gift gives a strong testimonial and can help the Fraternity and Foundation gain the support of alumni.  
  3. Each leading national fraternity has a similar program for collegiate giving. For Sigma Nu to remain a top tier fraternity, we need our collegiate brothers and alumni to invest in our Fraternity.  

How Long Does the 1869 Club Chapter Challenge Run? 

It runs from February 1, 2020 to March 8, 2020. 

How Do Gifts from the 1869 Club Impact Sigma Nu? 

Gifts to the 1869 Club help move Sigma Nu forward by providing resources for programs such as College of Chapters, LEAD, Behind Happy Faces, and Sigma Nu Institutes. These gifts help improve the Sigma Nu experience for brothers in your chapter and the more than 11,500 collegiate brothers across the country.  

Although your gift of $18.39 may seem small, you are joining hundreds of other Sigma Nu brothers to collectively make an impact in the lives of your chapter brothers, both present and future.
