    I don’t think all of our chapters would be able to sustain themselves if there was an increase in chapter dues right now. We are living in a pandemic economy and our average alumni member roughly makes 60K a year. Alumni who are recent graduates often fall into the ‘member in transition’ category and most are seeking gainful employment. Perhaps we could provide member education on including the Fraternity in our own charitable legacy plans. This could entail educating all members regardless of financial standing on leaving a percentage of their estate to one of our nonprofits or making the organization the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, for example.
