Some Thoughts On Why We Still Give

FIJI thanks all of the graduate members who have given to our organization all-time, as well as this year. Have you ever asked yourself why you give? Is it part of your charitable routine? Do you believe in affording the next generation of young men with the same experience you had with FIJI? Whatever the case, we thank you. Here are some reasons we collected from past surveys of other Phi Gamma Delta members from FIJI and various chapters around the country about why they have and continue to give back to their organizations:

"I support the annual fund because of the long history of FIJIs in my family with my brother and my two sons, being part of the Purdue chapter. The experience, brotherhood, and lifelong friendships formed during our years at Purdue are truly exceptional and important n forming our character."

"I support the annual fund because I believe in brotherhood. My fraternity experience was an instrumental part of my college life. Although I don't see a lot of my brothers on a yearly basis, I try to catch up with them at least every decade and it seems like it was just a year. I think of them often and of the great memories we had"

"Our college experience was vitally enriched by the time we spent with our brothers. Sleeping under the same roof, dining and partying together, and competing against other fraternities allowed us to form lasting, familial bonds. This sense of family is perhaps the most indelible aspect of our college days."

"I had so many great times with the guys from the house during college.  The parties, road-trips, football and basketball games, and even just spending time around the house were a welcome break from studying.  We had such a great group of brothers who were from a variety of backgrounds and places around the state and country, so that it was never boring at the house.  Since I had to pay my own way through school, living at the house and eating meals there helped me to manage financially by saving me tons of money. Because of the wonderful fellowship and great times I experienced, I feel that giving to the house I can help the chapter to continue to thrive and offer the same benefits to many new brothers in the future."

"There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of my days at the chapter house with my brothers. If the men at the house today are having 1/10th the fun I had in the 80's, they'll never forget it. Today, I don't see my brothers as often as I would like but I know they are there if I need them. And, I am there for them."
