Giving Day 2023 Sets Deke Record for the Third Straight Year!
Generous Deke undergraduates, alumni, friends, and family once again outperformed all Cornell Greek institutions on Cornell’s Annual Giving Day, raising over $82,000 for the DKE Group Housing Fund. Spurred by the chapter’s numerous recent successes and the availability of significant matching gifts from generous alumni, nearly 100 donors contributed for this one-day University sponsored fundraising event held on March 16th. This effort eclipses the nearly $50,000 DKE raised in 2021 and the nearly $60,000 raised in 2022, proving that our chapter retains an extraordinary alumni base that are committed and invested in the future of DKE at Cornell. These funds, as well as funds raised through dues payments to the Delta Chi Association, will be used by DKE to fund house improvements at the 13 South Avenue lodge and invest in chapter building initiatives. Many thanks to all of those dedicated Deke’s that contributed to the cause!
The Delta Chi chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon has remained an important and historic institution on the Cornell campus for over 150 years because of the dedication of hundreds of DKE brothers that remain engaged long after they complete their university education. DKE alumni attend summer reunions, participate in philanthropical events, provide professional networking and career guidance to recent graduates, and volunteer for house improvement projects. Alumni also contribute financially to the maintenance and upkeep of our historic Grey Stone Mansion through donations to Cornell University’s DKE Group Housing Fund and the alumni managed Delta Chi Association (501c3).
