The Zeta Delta Lodge Campaign
At the Initiation Banquet held on December 8, 2018, W. David Romoser, ZΔ ‘65, announced the launch of a capital campaign to develop funds to purchase the new Lodge. The name of the Campaign is “Restoring Excellence: The Zeta Delta Lodge Campaign” because our goal is not simply to purchase a Lodge, but rather to restore Zeta Delta’s place as a top fraternity on the University of Illinois campus and in the Chi Psi community.
The Campaign will be conducted in two phases.
During Phase 1, the goal will be to raise $500,000 in cash before May 1, 2019. These funds are required to make the down payment on the $1.65M purchase of the Delta Zeta house.
During Phase 2, we are raising additional funds to pay down the mortgage as well as to replenish Zeta Delta’s Educational Trust fund, which we anticipate will make a grant to assist with funding the purchase.
