Reasons to Give
Why are we conducting the Centennial Capital Campaign? Simple-we hope to provide the active chapter with the resources it needs to continue its success going forward. By doing so, we will ensure that future Cornell Acacians have the opportunity to be a part of the brotherhood that exists within the chapter today.
Your Fraternity Needs You!
As we celebrate one hundred years on Cornell's campus, we should think back to all we have accomplished as a fraternity. Our time at Acacia Fraternity provided a group of friends, a place to live, and for many, a home away from home. Throughout its first one hundred years at Cornell, alumni support has been an important part of the fraternity's success. In the future, this support will only become more important, as we prepare tomorrow's leaders. Your gift to the Centennial Capital Campaign will help the chapter sustain its current success. Join the many brothers who have already contributed to the campaign, and make your pledge today!
A Gift to Acacia is a Gift to Cornell
Many University alumni may give regularly to Cornell, but they do not think to give to their fraternities. By giving to Acacia, however, not only will the beneficiaries of your donation be Cornellians, but they will also be brothers with whom you have a fraternal connection.
Your Donation will be Used Wisely
The sprinkler system is a necessity, the Chapter Library refurbishment will commemorate the Centennial, and the other planned projects have long been neglected but are required to keep the house in good shape.
Your Gift Will Help with Recruitment
The rejuvenated chapter house will be of great appeal to potential members and will keep Acacia competitive among fraternities on campus. If the campaign funds its target projects, our active chapter will be able to tell potential new members that we have an alumni base committed to improving the fraternity.
All donors will have their names engraved on a plaque prominently displayed in the Chapter Library. Donors will also be listed by giving level in the Traveler and on the campaign's web site (unless anonymity is requested). We will discuss additional recognition with donors giving $10,000 or more.
