The 1897 Society seeks to fortify Sigma Pi for the future and next 50 years by improving and strengthening the financial need of the Alpha Chapter at Vincennes University.
The 1897 Society recognizes alumni and friends making donations equaling 1897 which represents the founding date of Alpha Chapter of Sigma Pi Fraternity on the Vincennes University campus.
The Alpha of Sigma Pi Educational Corporation is committed to providing funds to support educational and leadership programs for our members on their “quest for excellence.” To accomplish this important goal, we need strong, steady financial support from our many alumni who attribute at least part of their success to the valuable lessons they learned as members in Sigma Pi.
In becoming a member of the 1897 Society, Sigma Pi brothers pledge to pass forward the opportunities they had to be successful to our younger brethren who are and will be walking in our footsteps. It is the Fraternity's desire to grow these funds through the commitment of donors who generously contribute on a monthly, annual or one-time basis.
Your commitment will be recognized as a member of the 1897 Society and for this caring support, members will receive a member’s-only lapel pin along with other honorary recognition.
