I want to thank the active chapter for assisting us in painting some of the interior of the house this past Saturday. We were able to repaint the stairs their brown color as well as smoothing out chipped paint on the banister and repainting it white. We updated the paint color in the restrooms from blue to light grey for lighting purposes, and we updated the tan colored room outside those restrooms to the light grey color. You can see pictures below of our before and after.
Things did take a bit longer than anticipated, and we were unable to reach the kitchen, however, we are looking forward to repainting it for our alumni work day to be announced soon for the spring/summer time. Because of rain, the chapter was unable to pressure wash, however, the look to do that soon as well as painting the front entrance of the house white which has faded over time.
I want to thank all alumni that continue to donate to our capital campaign, and encourage any alumni reading to please consider donating at least $5 a month to become a member of Delta Pi Properties so that we can continue to do projects like this, and to build a scholarship fund for our active chapter.
For scholarships, something recently came to my attention regarding the Cares Act that I recently overlooked. For those who would rather donate money specifically for scholarships, the Cares Act that was passed earlier this year allows individuals to take a $300 tax deduction to a qualified charitable institution - even if an individual uses the standard deduction. This deduction is dollar for dollar and would be a great opportunity for any brother to donate to our Chapter Excellence Fund with the Educational Trust, which I have confirmed to be an eligible institution. Please visit our Scholarship page for information on how to donate to our Chapter Excellence Fund or reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
