Each year, the Hoop of Steel Society announces their cause at the Carlson Leadership Academies and undergraduate brothers can join by making a gift of $19.01 or more.
This is a unique way for undergraduates to learn about the Educational Foundation and have an opportunity to fund resources that will further their SigEp experience.
Over the past several months, 24 undergraduate leaders have come forward and formed the inaugural Hoop of Steel Society Giving Council. These chapter leaders are passionate about the experience they share with you and want to work to improve it. You can expect to hear from these men throughout the coming months via email and social media.
The Cause — Chapter Sites
The Hoop of Steel Society Giving Council is proud to introduce the cause of the 2017 HOSS Campaign — Chapter Sites.
