Congratulations! Goals met, formal fundraising concludes
The $50,000 Beal-Pyatt match storms across the finish line
Give yourselves a big round of applause and a cold beer at The Coug.
The historic day is here.
Because of your generosity over the last three years, we have met all our goals by raising more than $2.4 million for construction of the WSU Sigma Chi Centennial Chapter House plus hundreds of thousands more during previous campaigns in 1996 and 2006..
Today, the Executive Committee announced an end to this phase of formal fundraising.
Next stop: Grand Opening on August 8th, 2020. Do not miss it.
Despite the devastating news of the Covid-19 pandemic, the $50,000 Challenge Match put up by brothers Rick Beal and Jeff Pyatt was met. For all those donations that came in during that period, Rick and Jeff matched each dollar for dollar.
It allowed us to storm across the finish line together.
All donors at all amounts will be listed on the wall inside the new chapter house. That list will be printed, mounted and distributed as the official final list in late July. So, we will gladly accept further donations until then, especially to help cut expenses of the Grand Opening ceremonies being planned by a special organizing committee. Donors will be listed in order of the amount of their donation but specific amounts will not be included.
Separately, donors at or above $10,000 will be engraved on the Hall of Heroes plaque which will list categories of dollars. That list is now closed and the engraving has been ordered.
More than 422 donors made this happen. And you've all graciously read our fundraising emails (only three brothers complained!).
We're going to stay in touch. We thought we were building a building but we now realize we have created a close-knit community of WSU Sig alums of all ages.
With deep gratitude to every single one of you, thank you.
