FORGING
THE FUTURE

Your investment in Forging the Future will inspire today's Delt Man and increase the value of membership in Delta Tau Delta as we empower every member to craft a future of their own making.

We have a lot to be grateful for.

There was likely a time in your life when Delta Tau Delta was the center of your universe. Whether you realized it or not, Delt brought to life the lessons of the classroom, the chapter room, and the world to form a learning laboratory that you would rely on throughout life. As we look to the future, young men need what Delta Tau Delta has—now more than ever. What parts of Delta Tau Delta have had the biggest impact on your life?

The Delta Tau Delta tradition is rich, and we remain committed to providing an experience that is guided by our core values—truth, courage, faith, and power. While rooted in these shared ideals, we must also innovate and adapt to provide cutting edge programs, vital services, and pioneering membership benefits. What Delt experiences do you consider to be the most valuable?

Today, I invite you to make a transformative gift to the Forging the Future Campaign. Your participation will set the stage for a bright future for the Fraternity, our chapters, and members. Delta Tau Delta has a history worthy of honoring and a future worthy of forging—we cannot leave it to chance. Will you join me in Forging the Future?

Gratefully & Fraternally,

Our Priorities

The Forging the Future Campaign is solidified through our determination to define what is yet to come for Delta Tau Delta and her members. The Campaign is hardened by our collective strength, each united behind a common set of values and ideals. Since that fateful meeting in 1858, every decision made within the Fraternity has been boldly crafted by individuals unafraid of challenging the status quo. Help us translate our vision into reality by Forging the Future of Delta Tau Delta.

A strong scholarship program adds value to the national Fraternity by ensuring the resources necessary to keep young men enrolled are available and creates a competitive advantage in recruitment. Additionally, a program of this type provides tangible recognition for young men who are striving to lead lives of excellence while at the same time setting them up for a post-collegiate life with less educational debt.

As an organization focused on bettering mankind, Delta Tau Delta has always responded to the unmet needs occurring outside the classroom. Today, we must reinvest in those transformational experiences that can only be learned through participation in real-world experiences and in a supportive and nurturing living and learning environment.
