Giving Societies

Thanks to the generous support of our alumni brothers and friends of Sigma Chi, the Sigma Chi Foundation is able to provide nearly $10,000 in leadership curriculum and academic scholarship support to our undergraduate chapters every year. This is far beyond what any other Greek fraternity has been able to accomplish.

Giving societies were established to honor members that donate at certain levels. They honor lifetime giving as well as various levels of annual donations through the Life Loyal Sig annual giving program, the Thomas Cowan Bell Chapter Challenge, a program fund, Donor-Scholar or Foundation-operated scholarship funds, naming opportunities or historical initiatives.

In honor of Founder William Lewis Lockwood, the Lockwood Society recognizes brothers and friends who have provided significant financial support. Membership in this premier giving society is based on cumulative lifetime giving of $100,000 or more to Foundation-sponsored leadership and scholarship initiatives. Membership in the society entitles a donor to have their name permanently listed on the William Lewis Lockwood Society display at J. Dwight Peterson Sigma Chi International Fraternity Headquarters and a new diamond Lockwood Society Life Loyal Sig pin.
