Forever Alpha Campaign Goal: $4,000,000
In 4th quarter of 2014,
Alpha Chapter House Company hired Pennington & Co. to conduct a feasibility
study to determine the potential and viability of conducting a successful
major capital campaign. The results clearly showed this project was important
to our alumni and a campaign would be supported. Pennington & Co. was hired
in Oct. 2015 to help us conduct the largest capital campaign in the Alpha
Chapter's history. A Forever Alpha Campaign Board was formed which
comprised 15 board members to identify and solicit 100-150 alumni capable of
making major gifts of $25,000 or more. In March of 2017, we announced
the public phase of the Forever Alpha Campaign with the help of an
extensive network of era and class leader volunteers.
Currently, we have received over $2,550,000 in pledges from 121 alumni
to the Forever Alpha Campaign which represents 63.75% of our $4,000,000 goal.
As we begin the public phase of our campaign, our goal is to reach out to all
1,600+ alumni and to give every living Alpha Beta the opportunity to participate
in the campaign by making a 5-year pledge to the campaign
and/or volunteering their time to support campaign as an era or class
leader to ensure that we can reach out to every one of our 1,600+ alumni. To
support the public phase of the
campaign, Mitch Rales '78 has made challenge gift by agreeing match 20% of
the next $1,000,000 of pledges made after March 1, 2017.
The Alpha Chapter has formed
a partnership with the Miami University Foundation in support of the Forever
Alpha Campaign which will allow our alumni to make a gift through Miami
University Foundation to the Forever Alpha Campaign which will be 100% tax
deductible and will also count towards your lifetime giving to Miami
We are asking all our alumni to consider making a 5-year pledge to the Forever Alpha Campaign. Five year pledges of $5,000 or more will be recognized on a prominently displayed plaque in our new home. We encourage all alumni to make a pledge no matter how large or small do help us reach our campaign goal of $4,000,000.
