Annual gifts are a vital source of support for all aspects of SAE and provide leverage for excellence in the leader development and educational opportunities we provide. Recognition at this level is based on unrestricted cash gifts of $1,000 and above to the Annual Fund, including corporate matching gifts, during one fiscal year (July 1–June 30). 


    • Sigma Alpha Epsilon proudly introduces The Loyalty Society, our new annual giving society dedicated to recognizing Brothers who — by making a gift for three or more consecutive years— advance SAE’s Leader Development, Educational Opportunities and the Levere Memorial Temple.


  • Individuals in The Loyalty Society will be acknowledged annually and receive special recognition for milestone years of consecutive giving (5, 10, and 25+ years).
  • If you have any questions please contact Dawn DeBoard, Manager of Annual Giving at ddeboard@sae.nt. Give this fiscal year to ensure your recognition! 


  • Make a gift of any size, unrestricted, for at least three consecutive fiscal yearas (July 1 - June 30)
  • Maintain your recognition by giving every fiscal year



As the undergraduate giving club for the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation, the Phi Alpha Club recognizes current undergraduate students who have made a gift of $25 and above to the Foundation. These gifts go towards Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s areas of greatest need and help to support the costs of current students’ educational and leadership programs.

Each undergraduate member who joins and renews annually with the Phi Alpha Club has the satisfaction of supporting Sigma Alpha Epsilon with a tax-deductible gift. Members will also receive a lapel pin upon joining to recognize them as leaders within the fraternity.
