Thank you for all the excitement and participation with the 2022 Psi Upsilon Day’s of Giving Annual Fund event! THANK YOU and *snaps* to all our generous donors who participated in this new donor event; 11.6% more donors than last year…all told, brothers from 31 chapters donated last week!

The Gamma Tau had the most participation, followed by the Omicron and the Eta, so thank you to those chapters and the alumni who recruited and thanked their brothers for supporting Psi U scholarships, fellowships, publications, grants, and programs this week! The Tau and the Theta Theta rounded out the Top 5.
For our new chapter spirit award the winners were:
Hebe chapter (youngest)
Phi Delta, University of Mary Washington (1996)
Shrine chapter (no active undergraduate chapter
Gamma, Amherst College (1841)
Lots of exciting new and increased participation from chapters like the Beta Beta, Theta Theta, Delta, Lambda, Epsilon and many more!
I also want to give a special thanks to the brothers who used ThankView to record a video sharing their support of Psi U.

THANK YOU brothers, for all that you do, and all the material support you provide to keep our temple walls bright.
