Giving Levels

The SAE Foundation recognizes donors in two different giving club structures; undergraduate giving and lifetime giving.  The Phi Alpha Club is exclusive to undergraduates who donate $25 or more to the SAE Annual Loyalty Fund.  

Lifetime Giving Credit is earned through cumulative gifts made to or through the SAE Foundation.  All gifts to the SAE Annual Loyalty Fund, restricted funds, capital funds, and endowments earns lifetime giving credit.  In addition, all gifts made to individual chapter campaigns that are sent to the SAE Foundation (not mailed directly to the chapter or chapter housing corporation) will earn lifetime giving credit for the donor.
