4/25 Alumni Day Drive Raises nearly $95,000

May 10, 2023 – The Leadership Foundation hosted its 4/25 Alumni Day Drive April 23-25 to raise money for the Annual Fund and other endowments.


The 4/25 Alumni Day Drive celebrates National Alumni Day and encourages everyone to celebrate our alumni members by supporting the Leadership Foundation. Gifts to the 4/25 Alumni Day Drive ensure future Deltasigs have the same (or even better) Deltasig experience than members with more scholarships, leadership and professional development opportunities, life skills training and so much more. By working together, this initiative helps build better future business leaders!

This year’s 4/25 Alumni Day Drive provided a resounding success with nearly $95,000 raised, of which approximately $60,000 going toward the Annual Fund. We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s contributions. The generosity to the Annual Fund will help pay the business costs of providing grants and scholarships.
