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
Plans are underway at 518 West Park Avenue for a significant renovation to help support the future of Beta Eta at Florida State University. Since the campaign launched in 2019, many generous sisters have stepped forward to commit their gifts in support of the goal of $1,500,000. But we need your help!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.
Our beautiful, new home at 115 College Ave enhances the active members’ experience with numerous study spaces and ample space for formal meals, chapter, and social interaction. Psi’s new campaign, A Second Century of Excellence, is a pathway to support Psi now and into the future by reducing the chapter’s debt, while keeping the new house updated. We need your help in reaching the campaign goal of $2 million by December 31, 2027. All donors who contribute an accumulated $5,000 or more will be recognized on a new donor plaque.
The Campaign for 1064 S. Lumpkin launched in 2017 and the chapter proudly dedicated the newly renovated chapter house at University of Georgia in November 2021. While the facility is complete, we continue to accept gifts to support the project and reach the campaign’s $1.2 million goal. Every contribution to the fund will reduce the chapter's financial burden from the renovations. Naming opportunities are still available. We are grateful to many donors for committing their gifts to The Campaign for 1064 S. Lumpkin.
The Building a Future for Iota Sigma campaign launched in 2018 and in just three years has raised more than $1,000,000. The campaign has a generous matching gift of up to $500,000. 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 gift! We are grateful to the many donors who have committed their gifts to the campaign for Iota Sigma, Southern Methodist University.
