Chapter Housing Funds
Through chapter housing funds, donors can make tax-deductible gifts for educational improvements to chapter facilities within the guidelines provided by the IRS. These funds can be granted to the local house corporation or National Housing Corporation to pay for the construction, renovation, redecoration, furnishing or operations of educational portions of the designated chapter’s facility. Examples of educational areas include study rooms and libraries. Examples of educational equipment include desks and chairs, computers, printers, etc.
Funds raised are designated to benefit a specific chapter and can be raised as part of a capital campaign or on an ongoing basis. The process of establishing a chapter housing fund requires documentation related to the house corporation’s organizational structure and health, facility square footage and usage, project cost estimates, etc. Funds may be established for large-scale renovations, new facility builds, small-scale projects or to support ongoing operations.

Chapters with Active Major Housing Campaigns
Psi chapter’s campaign goal is $3.25 million. All donors who contribute $2,500 or more will be recognized on a plaque in the chapter house.
There are still opportunities to make a difference by naming a room or to honor a sister who made a difference in your life by naming a space in her honor.
So far, we have raised $400,000 and "unlocked” that same amount from the matching gift donor. We still hope to fulfill the last $100,000 of the match – any gifts that come in will be doubled through this generous gifts! We are grateful to the many donors who have committed their gifts to the campaign for Iota Sigma, Southern Methodist University.
The goal of this campaign, which started in 2021, is to raise $300,000 in gifts from alumnae, parents and friends of Zeta Nu chapter to match the amount contributed by the chapter and National Housing Corporation. There are naming opportunities to honor your experience or a sister in the renovated facility while making a difference.
