As 250,000 brothers around the world celebrate Sigma Phi Epsilon’s 122nd birthday, the Fraternity is developing a generation of leaders and a local chapter experience that helps our young men fulfill their potential. On Nov. 1-2, over 4,200 brothers, parents and friends stepped up to support SigEp’s undergraduates through the Annual Fund. Thank you to the donors, Board of Governors members, challenge donors, Chapter Captains, call center participants and broadcast guests who made Founders Day of Giving a success!
Founders Day provides critical funding for the SigEp experience. In addition to supporting our hallmark national programs — Carlson Leadership Academy, Ruck Leadership Institute, Career Coaching, Tragos Quest to Greece and Grand Chapter Conclave — you are supporting a chapter experience that creates communities of high-achieving young men built on meaningful relationships and a sense of belonging.
Your generosity helps our 12,000 young men find purpose, understand their potential and develop sills and values that will guide the rest of their lives. Thanks to your support during Founders Day of Giving, the Fraternity can deliver a bigger and better SigEp experience that is just as transformative for today’s men as it has been for every generation of brothers since our founding.
If you missed Founders Day, don't worry! You can still support over 12,000 SigEp students with a gift to the SigEp Educational Foundation Annual Fund now.
Founders Day of Giving features a friendly competition among chapters! The chapter with the most donors has their name engraved on the Founders Day Trophy and their school's flag flown over SigEp Headquarters in Richmond. The chapter with the most dollars raised receives a custom engraved wrestling-style championship belt.
The below scoreboards are the official results for the chapter challenge, which closed at 2:59 a.m. Eastern on Nov. 3. View the full rules here.
