If you are interested in giving money, we will just cut to the chase and tell you the ways, but we are always available to answer questions. The two major avenues are through the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation (SNEF), which is fully tax-deductible, or directly to the alumni chapter or house. Here are a few links to get you there:
The "I Give 100 to Theta Kappa" Campaign (Give 100)!
Each year on September 1st the Theta Kappa Alumni Chapter and House Corporation kick off the "Give 100" campaign for chapter development. The purpose is to create a way to have a recurring alumni revenue stream as well as seed and continue an on-going academic/scholarship fund with the foundation. We recognize some of you will want to do one, both, or neither, but we need to create an on-going fund for both of these important areas each year. You have probably heard about it and wanted more information, so here it is!
Here is what "Give 100" goes to and funds:
More about the "Give 100" campaign & goals:
The "Give 100" campaign for Alumni Dues has the following goals (Give $100 Now!):
The Theta Kappa Scholarship Fund is fully tax deductible 501(c)(3) as a charitable educational foundation. For those interested in this type of giving on a large or small scale we have an avenue. If you already give to Sigma Nu you can change your donations and have them earmarked for the Theta Kappa Scholarship Fund in the future.
Here is an example of the power of group participation - some by many equals a lot!
*The Theta Kappa Scholarship Fund is managed by the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation who pays out scholarships to the Theta Kappa Chapter in accordance with our Scholarship Operating Agreement and is awarded by a Theta Kappa Alumni Committee. Currently there is not enough principal in the fund to pay out scholarships in 2012, but we should have enough funds to begin awarding scholarships in the Fall 2013.
Today we have the ability to take contributions online via credit card, debit card, and ACH withdrawl, but if you desire funds to go to the Theta Kappa Scholarship Fund they should be submitted directly to the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation and earmarked or restricted to the Theta Kappa Scholarship Fund.

If you are presently making a contribution to the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation (SNEF) you may consider restricting/earmarking some or all for the Theta Kappa Scholarship Fund.
Click on the image above to make your payment for Fees, Alumni Dues, or Donations to the Theta Kappa Alumni Chapter and House Corporation - you will be sent to: https://e-giving.org/SigmaNuFraternity where you will see our familiar graphics and a trusted site. Once you register on our e-giving site you can come back as often as you want for additional items or you can establish recurring payments or payment plans as you decide.
We now take advantage of "Square Up" Mobile Credit Card readers, which allow us to capture Homecoming Fees, Alumni Dues, or donations to the Theta Kappa Alumni Chapter right on the spot. It goes directly into our Alumni Account that night with minimal fees, so it is a perfect tool. Alumnus Michael Reed, ΘΚ 654 (2004), was the first alumnus to pay the $100 alumni dues on the reader at our Atlanta Alumni Mixer on Tue., March 19th right at the table at the Hudson Grille!
The traditional e-giving service that we use may be found at https://e-giving.org/SigmaNuFraternity is still our most cost effective means, but either method accomplishes the same goal and both are significantly less than traditional credit card machines.
