Securing Our Legacy for Eta’s Second Century:
The Campaign for the Eta Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho

Every now and then in the life of an organization, an opportunity arises that, if seized, can strengthen the organization’s capacity to achieve something very significant. The Eta Building Association is in the process of repositioning ΚΔΡ for success at Illinois.

To that end, and to assist with our revitalization efforts, the House Corporation—in partnership with the National Fraternity—has hired Abe Hinterlach, ZB’21, as the ΚΔΡ Educational Leadership Consultant responsible for the expansion program to restore Eta Chapter.

With the help of a small band of volunteers, many brothers have been contacted and have stepped up by making a pledge of support over five years totaling $712,138. However, we still have a way to go to reach our goal of $1.2 million.

This is an incredibly important project and to succeed we need your help. Can we count on you?

Details about the campaign can be found here.

Current Campaign Goal:
$1.2 million

Non-Deductible Pledge Samples
