CHAPTER HOUSE CAMPAIGNS
In response to increased interest from chapters and alumni organizations in making major fundraising pushes for chapter housing and other funding needs the Triangle Education Foundation now offers chapters and alumni organizations comprehensive support for their fundraising efforts. The Foundation offers campaign services for major fundraising initiates, including campaigns for major chapter house renovations or building a new facility. We can also incorporate other chapter needs such as funding scholarships, support for leadership programs, and meeting a chapter’s ongoing educational needs into a campaign.
We offer a range of services to fit chapter needs. For more information, please contact Triangle Education Foundation Vice President, Aaron Girson, CFRE at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-837-9641.
Pre-Campaign Study & Alumni Relations Assessment
Comprehensive Campaign Counsel/Management
As part of the Triangle family, the Triangle Education Foundation is well-positioned to support the fundraising needs of Triangle chapters:
We understand the unique culture of Triangle and have experience working with Triangle alumni.
We are already working with your alumni and often already have connections with many of your chapter’s potential supporters.
We coordinate support with the National Fraternity and Triangle Building & Housing Corporation.
The Triangle Education Foundation has 60 years of fundraising experience with more than 50 years of experience in the fraternity industry and all of our senior-level staff hold the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) credential.
As the chapter approaches its centennial, Triangle faces a challenging campus landscape and evolving membership needs. To build on our chapter's proud traditions and ensure the chapter's future, the active and alumni leadership are working to address critical needs for the chapter house.
The chapter's home must be able to keep up with the dynamic changes on campus and in the workplace. Our brothers need quality facilities where they can study, complete hands-on assignments, provide for remote learning, support group study, and find flexible space for team projects.
The actives and alumni have developed a renovation plan for 1501 Washtenaw that will keep our home competitive on campus and meet the needs of the chapter for years to come. Our plan calls for improvements to life safety/fire suppression, significant changes to the basement/main floor, expansion of critically needed study areas, creation of a lab/workshop (maker space) for members to complete hands-on assignments/personal projects, updated and expanded restrooms, refreshed bedrooms, and improvements to the overall flow of the common spaces.
The active and alumni leadership believes the renovations will position the chapter for continued success. Our vision is to provide a modern home for our active brothers that makes the most of the existing footprint.
The renovations will be conducted in phases to minimize disruptions to the chapter, with a goal of completion in time for the chapter's 100th-anniversary celebrations.
Renovation costs are estimated at $3,100,000.00

Living together strengthens the bond of brotherhood. 112 E. Daniel Street has been an important part of the Illinois Triangle for most of our history. The current house was built in the early 1960s and has to date not had a major renovation - it is a credit to the alumni and chapter leadership's attention to upkeep that the house has served the chapter for so long. The chapter and alumni leadership have been discussing the chapter house, and after evaluating options, decided to undertake a major renovation of the current facility. Leadership presented conceptual plans at the 2019 Homecoming and completed additional planning and feasibility analysis in 2020. Construction has begun and will be completed in 2022, with an effort to minimize the time that the house will be vacant.
