March 15, 2017 - The Alumni Delta Beta Chapter of Theta Chi, Inc. seek to raise $1.5 million to complete a major restoration of our historic home at 645 South Milledge Avenue, including a plan to rebuild the ballroom, kitchen, basement and living quarters on the backside of the house.

To date 26 alumni have pledged $279,500 in the silent phase of our planning. We are asking you to join us in this campaign. It is the first major fundraising event in Delta Beta’s 68-year history. We’re calling it “Vision 70: An Investment in Our Future.”  Since the chapter will turn seventy years old in 2019, we’re launching the campaign now with the plan to hit the goal and begin construction on the chapter’s 70th Anniversary.

You’ll see that our alumni leadership has carefully planned this campaign after implementing a Strategic Plan, a Restoration and Reconstruction plan, a market study, and a campaign plan.  The plan for our work to benefit the chapter can be found here:

The Case for Support

Our historic chapter house is now 112 years old, and has served more than 1,000 Theta Chis since our purchase of the home in 1961. And, we weren’t the first fraternity to live there! Decades of alumni leaders and undergraduate members have discussed a major capital project, but this is the first time a campaign of this magnitude has been attempted. The question is: “Can we count on you to step up and lead?” 

The Vision 70 Presentation will show you that the Alumni Corporation has completed extensive planning and preparation work. If you have any questions about the plans or the campaign, please contact: Wes Wicker at 404-213-4446 or wes@columnsfundraising.com.
