Michigan Alpha Needs Your Help!
House Corporation Plans for Chapter’s Future

Calling all Michigan Alpha brothers! For the past four years, the alumni leadership in the Michigan Alpha Chapter has been hard at work on the Great Tradition—New Vision campaign. To date, we have raised $259,428, purchased the house at 630 Oxford, and made several improvements to the new property. While our ultimate goal is to acquire a preeminent housing location and structure, there are still many steps on the way to reaching it.

The necessary updates have been broken down over a five-year timeline. We hope to complete the 2015 projects this summer, but they are expected to cost nearly $40,000 and can only be completed with alumni support. Some of our needs are more immediate than others, but we appreciate alumni support in all of the projects. If you have a special interest or talent and would like to help with one of the projects below, please contact Jack Gray ’07 at jpgrayjr@gmail.com, or send in a gift today to our P.O. Box or by visiting http://michiganalpha.kintera.org/donate. Any interest or support you can offer as we upgrade our facility is much appreciated.
