Founders Day of Giving
Last year, for the first time we created a campaign that is solely dedicated to the philanthropic concept of giving! We launched a campaign that brought about Founders Day of Giving. The idea was to recognize the unique opportunities Acacia Fraternity brings to its members whether they are actives, alumni, or pledges. One that isn't tied to internet fads, or widely commercialized holidays. No, we wanted to develop a day that Acacians could always harken back to. The day is May 12th, the anniversary of the founding of Acacia Fraternity by 14 master masons in the third floor of the University of Michigan library.
Being good Acacians, we all realize “Acacia time” is a real part of all of our lives. We are busy and have day to day commitments that we are bound to. Recognizing that, this year we have expanded the concept to bring about meaningful growth to the Acacia Fraternity Foundation and the programs it supports, by launching a 30 day campaign leading up to that special day, Founders Day, May 12th 2018. The campaign is My Acacia Journey and will highlight the undergraduate members and their impact on campuses around the world.
Here is the part where we could use your help. Regardless of your affiliation to Acacia, we want you to consider giving a gift during this campaign to the Annual Fund, or to benefit one of our special funds. The Foundation supports the Fraternity’s leadership training, educational endeavors, educational portions of fraternity house structures, and scholarships to deserving Acacians around North-America.
This year is the next step in the continuing journey to build upon the foundations and strengthen the tradition of giving among our Brothers. The more individuals who support this initiative year after year, the easier it will be to support our scholarship funds, leadership academies, and new initiatives for years to come. Through these programs and your gifts, we will be able to provide a fine fraternal experience for our future brothers.
