On November 1-2, 2018, Alpha Sigma Tau Sisters and friends will come together in celebration of 119 years of Sisterhood during our annual Founders Day of Giving.
In collaboration with this beloved event, we are excited to announce the launch of the 1899 Society Collegiate Giving Challenge, which encourages participation in the 1899 Society, Alpha Sigma Tau Foundation’s exclusive giving society for collegiate Sisters.
The 1899 Society Collegiate Giving Challenge will run from Monday, October 1 through the close of Founders Day of Giving at 2:00 p.m. ET on Friday, November 2.
Collegiate Sisters who have not yet joined the 1899 Society this calendar year with a donation of $18.99 or more to the Alpha Sigma Tau Foundation are encouraged to contribute by visiting the online donation page at alphasigmatau.org/foundation/give-now. When making a contribution, please choose “Founders Day of Giving” as your Donation Type and Investing In “1899 Society Collegiate Giving Challenge”.
In addition to the exclusive 2018 purple anchor dangle that all individual members of the 1899 Society receive, at the conclusion of Founders Day of Giving, the collegiate chapters with the three largest cumulative donations as well as all chapters achieving a participation rate of 100% or more in the 1899 Society, will be entered in a drawing to win one of four exciting prize packs, sponsored by Alpha Sigma Tau National Sorority.
1. A visit to the chapter’s campus in the spring 2019 semester from Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority National President Tiffany K. Street, Delta Mu.
2. Green and gold Alpha Sigma Tau lettered v-neck t-shirts for every active collegiate member and new member on the reported fall 2018 semester chapter roster.

Official Alpha Sigma Tau branded recruitment box valued at approximately $300 including (1) white tablecloth with the full Alpha Sigma Tau logo, (1) 8.25 x 17 inch tabletop display with your school name (ex: Alpha Sigma Tau at Eastern Michigan University), branded “PR Buttons”, branded stylus pens to distribute or use for sign-ups at campus events, mylar balloons with Alpha Sigma Tau logo, and (3) packs of official bid cards.
4. Alpha Sigma Tau branded corn hole set valued at approximately $220 - perfect for campus activity fairs, recruitment and Sisterhood events, and tabling.
All chapters achieving a participation rate of 50% or more in the 1899 Society based on the reported fall 2018 chapter roster will receive special recognition in the spring 2019 edition of THE ANCHOR.

The collegiate chapters with the top three largest cumulative donation amounts through the 1899 Society for Collegiate Giving and/or all collegiate chapters with a participation rate of 100% or more based on the fall 2018 collegiate chapter roster will be entered in a drawing to win one of the four prizes outlined.
