Strong Financial Support Received, But More Needed to Reach $9.5 Million Goal
Make a Donation Today to Ensure Plans for the Shelter Stay on Track
We have officially topped $7 million with an impressive $7,178,735 committed to the Texas Delts: Continuing the Tradition campaign. More than 290 alumni have chosen to support and invest in the future of Texas Delt, and I am extremely thankful and proud to be a part of this campaign.
Raising more than $7 million is a huge milestone we needed to hit on our way to our goal. But it’s just that—a milestone. We must hit $9.5 million.
What Will $9.5 Million Do?
- Ensure our project can move forward as envisioned.
- Bring Michal Hsu Office of Architecture’s design to life, turning the Shelter into the preeminent fraternity house in Austin and across the country.
- Address mandatory life-safety issues with sprinklers, fire-rated doors, and full compliance with code specifications.
- Complete a full interior renovation, including expanding dining hall capacity to 130 men, redesigning bedrooms, and providing ample meeting and study space, among many other upgrades.
- Bring all this to life with minimal debt exposure for the chapter and House Corporation.
In addition to raising $9.5 million, we need 1,000 Texas Delt donors and 40% participation. To date, we sit at 294 donors and 12% participation. We know we can reach our goal if more brothers pitch in. Our annual campaign had more than 460 donors—we should have that many, if not more, to this crucial campaign. With many other fraternities on campus doing major renovations, we will be left behind if we do not do this project n
ow and do it right.
Brothers, the writing is on the wall. We have less than a year to raise the remaining $2.3 million. If we cannot meet our goal, our project plan will be drastically altered to meet our reduced budget. That is surely not the Delt tradition.
