Friendly Competition

As individuals we are weak, as chapters we are strong, as a Fraternity we are powerful.

Thank you for supporting your brothers! We appreciate your generosity – now let’s amplify your impact and help your chapter win $1,000 toward their endowment! There are several ways you can help share the importance of giving.

Challenge Others to Match Your Support

Encourage your chapter brothers to take the Challenge. Invite up to ten brothers and/or friends to join in the competition! Just punch in their name, along with a cell phone number OR email address – we’ll take it from there. You can even opt to be CC’d on the Challenge email and we’ll notify you when your challenge is accepted.

How It Works

Three divisions make up this year’s Founders Day Challenge: Small (1-150 total initiated members), Medium (151-600 total initiated members) and Large (601+ total initiated members). There will be two winners per division; the chapter who raises the most funds and the chapter who accumulates the most donations. Last year, analytics revealed that chapters who sent the most challenges found the most success during the competition.

Bill Doyle

penn state, '77

"Alpha Sigma Phi shaped my early adult life. My college experience contributed to who I am, but my fraternity experience was the driving force. I like what I see with our national focus and I donate time and financial support to help ensure we offer all our brothers that same personal growth within Alpha Sigma Phi."

Tim Gullicksen

uc-berkeley, '84

"I give to the Old Gal not just because of all my fond memories from college, but to honor friendships that have endured and will ultimately last a lifetime. I'd like to provide the same opportunities to younger brothers of the Fraternity that my forebears made possible for me back when I was an undergraduate member."

Frank Morgan

american, '58

"There are two reasons I invest in Alpha Sigma Phi that stem from the opportunities the Fraternity provides in developing leadership skills in young men, as well as life-long friendships. Over 55 years after my initiation, my two closest friends are fraternity brothers from my chapter, the Beta Chi Chapter at American University."

Questions / Answers

This is a big day for our donors and the fraternity itself. We want you to feel good about your gift and the support you're providing for future generations. If you have questions that aren't answered below, contact Matt Humberger at mhumberger@alphasigmaphi.org.

What is the purpose of the Founders Day Challenge?

The Founders Day Challenge is the primary vehicle Alpha Sigma Phi uses to raise money to support all of our leadership programming and scholarships. With our recent growth of existing chapters and addition of new groups, there is more demand than ever before for our programming. This year, we have added the functionality for you to “challenge” other fraternity brothers to make this a record breaking year!

How will my contribution be used?

Funds raised through the Founders Day Challenge will go toward the Fraternity’s ability to continually lead the way in educational programming amongst the nations fraternities and provide a variety of scholarships. Alpha Sigma Phi is one of very few fraternities who offer extensive officer training at no cost to the attendee.

What is the goal of this year’s campaign?

The goal of this year’s Founders Day Challenge is to raise $200,000 for the Fund for Alpha Sigma Phi. This represents a 10% increase over last year’s goal. More importantly, our stretch goal for number of donors is 2,000. Last year we had 1,302 individuals support our efforts.

How do I know my contribution has been accepted?

As part of the required fields to complete your contribution, you will need to provide your preferred email address. Once you submit your contribution, you will receive a confirmation email to the address you provided on the contributions page.

How can I “challenge” a brother, friend, or family member to make a contribution of their own?

Upon receiving your confirmation email, you will notice a ‘challenge’ option included in the body text. This allows you to send a ‘challenge’ text message to up to ten individuals. This text message will explain the purpose of the Founders Day Challenge and how to contribute. Just input a valid phone number for each!

Can I make a contribution to my chapter’s endowment?

Yes! If you would like to make your contribution to any of our chapter’s endowments instead of to the Fund for Alpha Sigma Phi, please indicate such in the "Donation Notes" portion of the contributions page. If you do not specify in that section, your contribution will automatically be administered into the Fund for Alpha Sigma Phi.
