Montana Beta Celebrates 90 Years on Campus
Brothers, Support the 50/50 Campaign
We celebrated the 90th anniversary of Montana Beta’s presence on the University of Montana campus—think about the significance of this achievement. Through all the ups and downs, crisis and triumphs, Montana Beta has managed to survive. Other fraternities have come and gone and in some cases come back, but we have survived it all.
This hasn’t happened in a bubble; it has happened because of hard work and a belief that SAE and Montana Beta plays a big part in our lives and has had something to do with making us all better people. We believe it still has a place in this society to help with the education of our young men. SAE builds friendships that will last a lifetime. It taught many of us to learn to appreciate others’ beliefs. I think practicing the True Gentleman, along with the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments, are all we really need to live a good and honorable life.
In honor of Montana Beta’s 90th anniversary, we are launching a 50/50 Campaign to ask 180 brothers, parents, and friends to join in raising $90,000. Each dollar will be split 50/50 between a tax-deductible scholarship endowment (Montana Beta Chapter Education Fund) and current funds to upgrade the house at 1120 Gerald, which are not tax deductible. Reaching our goal will help grow the Montana Beta Chapter Education Fund, an endowed scholarship fund with the SAE Foundation, to send at least two undergraduate brothers to SAE Leadership School. The endowed funds also could be used for tuition to the SAE Eminent Archon Institute, academic scholarship at the University of Montana, or other education purposes. Funds will also take care of our current top priority for the chapter house: replacing the exterior siding.
Your donations to the 50/50 Campaign count toward your lifetime giving levels with Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation. Please go to this website to make your donations: http://gvcmp.us/1v1th3
