DKE House Fundraiser 2014
A new ΔKE house is needed... now is the time to act!
It has been almost 8 years since Alpha Tau moved out of the Warsaw house (R.I.P.), and the active chapter needs the support of the alumni chapter now to purchase a new house.
The Alumni Association has been working hard to facilitate the purchase of this house at 638 Jubilee Ave. It is in a high traffic area of the city and has many advantages to its becoming the next ΔKE house. It is a four bedroom /2 bath / w garage that would be sustainable as an active chapter house. The Alpha Tau chapter currently is very active and healthy with over 20 members. We should be proud of the way they have kept ΔKE alive without a house: and now its our chance to reward their efforts. The Alumni Association has about $150K from the sale of the previous house, but we will need substantially more ($200K+) from the Alumni and active chapters to make this dream a reality for active members and for future generations of ΔKE.
What ΔKE needs from you.
We need Alumni to step-up to donate funds towards the purchase of this property. And we need your support NOW. This project has been in the works for some time now, and it finally entering into a critical stage where most of the planning has been done, but we need to FUNDRAISE for the final purchase of the property.
How do I support this fundraising effort of Alpha Tau?There are two main ways to donate:
Make a direct donation to Alpha Tau.
By using PayPal;
Or, by sending a cheque to Alumni Treasurer;Rob Eby
Donate to the ΔKE Foundation and get a TAX receipt.
ΔKE Canada has created a nonprofit foundation operating out of Vancouver that allows all donations to get a TAX receipt (ie. Just like a donation to Heart and Stroke, etc). You can even divide the donation across two years if you want. Wow, all money donated to the foundation comes back directly to Alpha Tau and you get a tax break.
Donate to the ΔKE Foundation on≠line by credit card or PayPal (lump sum or installments);https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/dke-university-and-college-funding-inc/
Or, fill out and return the donor form, along with a cheque (lump sum or a monthly deduction VOID cheque) to;DKE University and College Funding Inc.
#91465 West 15th Ave
*make cheques out to: DKE University and College Funding Inc.
Within two days, the Alpha Tau Chapter receives information of your donation to the cause, and the funds can be transferred to Alpha Tau Alumni Association for the purchase of this house.
Its that easy... and very quick to give back to ΔKE.
Its time to pay it back to the fraternity gentlemen. We all have gained much from our association with our fraternity and we want to assure that future generations of young men will have an opportunity to experience ΔKE as well. We require our alumni and active members to come up big now in our hour of need.
We have created different categories of donors to the ΔKE house project, and we will create a donation board of members who have taken part to be displayed at the ΔKE house (of course, any anonymous donations will be respected)
