Sigma Chi Foundation “Text To Give”

Today I received an email from the Sigma Chi Foundation. They have started a new campaign that allows members to donate $10 just by texting “INHOC” to 20222. It’s that simple and I’m impressed with the fraternity for their progressive thinking. The “text to donate” thing has become main stream and been a huge success in recent years. Hopefully the Sigma Chi Foundation will see similar success. If you’d like to give more then $10 you can by using the following “online giving form”: https://www2.sigmachi.org/article.phtml?iItemID=1185

There was also an interesting stat in the email.
P.S. less than 3% of alumni give to support Sigma Chi. Help us change this by texting to give today. We really do need you.” (emphasis mine)

    As a sigma myself, I think this is a great way for alumni to give and keep our foundation strong.

    I’m curious about what they define as giving? Monetarily, younger Alumni have a harder time giving. So in an effort to give, I volunteer as much time as I can – primarily as a Chapter Advisor, but also as Facilitator at BTLW. With that said, I would think that the 3% figure given would be much higher if the accounted for time donated.

    • My guess is they are only counting monetary donations that are given directly to the Foundation. I am curious to know if becoming a Life Loyal Sig falls into this category…
