Michigan Gamma is pleased to announce the capital campaign, “A New Chapter in Michigan Gamma’s Legacy, Realizing the Bill Fiscus Vision.” Bill Fiscus dedicated much of his life to Sigma Alpha Epsilon and specifically, Michigan Gamma. 342 North Harrison, which Michigan Gamma has called home since 1984, was a direct result of his efforts. In order to ensure that the chapter house remains competitive for the next 50 years, it is now our time to step up as alumni and support this vision Bill had of a permanent home for Michigan Gamma. The campaign has a fundraising goal of $1,000,000.
Through a partnership with SAE Financial & Housing Corporation, a $2,000,000 renovation is scheduled to begin in March 2016. To date, the capital campaign has raised almost $600,000 of the $1,000,000 and F&H will provide the funding for the remaining $1,000,000.
The improvements to the chapter house include increasing the occupancy from 33 beds to a potential 54 beds. Currently the house provides four single bedrooms and the renovations will add 17 additional single bedrooms. This will assist in getting upper classman to live in the chapter house, providing leadership from the more experienced brothers. In addition, a dining room expansion, added study suites, renovated library, dedicated bathrooms for female guest and a nice exterior façade are included in the renovations.
We look forward to completing this project and hope that the alumni will consider giving to the campaign.
