Donations through the College

Beginning in the fall of 2015 Gettysburg College is establishing Programming, Education and Maintenance accounts for each chapter on campus. This means that you will now be able to designate a portion of your gifts to the College directly to Sigma Nu and the Zeta Sigma Chapter. The funds in these accounts are restricted to specific areas:

  • Educational and leadership development activities and events – This could include bringing speakers to campus and providing assistance for travel costs to leadership events like Grand Chapter and other Sigma Nu National events.
  • Scholarships

Gifts made to these accounts are still tax deductible which is why there are restrictions on how the funds can be used. Because we still own our chapter house the funds cannot be used for capital improvements to the building or for equipment needs, etc. If you would like your donations to be used for those purposes then you can give directly to the House Corporation.
