Picking Apart Annual Fund numbers -- what do our giving totals tell us about ourselves?

FaceBook  Twitter

We’re in the Early Stages of Our Annual Fund and Looking to Increase our Donor Base. Will You Step Up?

This space is about you – the generous and thoughtful Brother who has given back to Phi Kappa Theta so far this giving year. It’s also about you – the Brother who’s looking for a way to contribute to Beta Gamma’s future success but hasn’t yet. The time has come!

Just remember why you chose Phi Kappa Theta at Penn State and what made that experience special for you. Your gift helps ensure current and future Brothers will have a similar – maybe even better – experience since our annual fund helps support undergrads with improvements or regular maintenance to the Chapter House. It also helps you as your gift can also help Beta Gamma:

  • Host alumni events and maintain a consistent communications program to keep our brothers connected – after all, our alumni base is what truly makes our chapter special and we must continue to communicate and plan events for alums to catch up!
  • Fund important house projects and Brotherhood initiatives to ensure the house continues to attract the best and brightest potential Brothers

So, how are we doing? Actually, pretty good! One of the reasons Phi Kappa Theta is one of the best alumni groups is because of our high levels of alumni participation. Last year, 118 of you helped us raise just over $21,500 to bank toward our annual fund last and we think – no, we know we can do better than 16 percent of participation. While our current annual fund total of $4,880 is a bit ahead of where we were at this time last year, our donor numbers are down to 29 from 41 at this point last year.

Although the average gift has jumped up to about $168 from $109, we wanted to remind Brothers who have made consistent gifts that there’s still plenty of time to give back. We also wanted to give others the chance to become a first-time donor.
