I wish there was a more  glamorous target for our fundraising dollars, but one of the most used parts of the house are the upstairs bathrooms (and some of you used them more than others!) The bathrooms have definitely seen better days and between fixtures aging and attempted repairs not working out quite right, it’s time to just start completely over and renovate. We are taking the opportunity to strip down the bathrooms right down to the studs and starting completely over.

We believe that this renovation is necessary not only to rejuvenate the well worn bathrooms, but also to attract new residents and rushes to the house. In its current state, it’s a liability and we intend to turn that into an asset.

This is a major undertaking for the house as it involves plumbing, electrical, carpentry, flooring, as well as acquiring new fixtures. Altogether the budget for the project is over $16,000 (and in this economic environment we are already seeing pressure pushing the costs even higher). The current project is for renovation of one bathroom, but we would like to follow that up with the second bathroom (the rough-in work will facilitate much of the work on the second bathroom).

To support this project as well as funding other longer overdue projects, we are kicking off a new capital campaign with a goal of $25,000 by the end of the year. We realize this is a big ask, but we are counting on your help as the chapter recovers from unprecedented difficulties recruiting and dealing with the effects of the pandemic lockdown. This is an investment in the house that we believe will pay dividends.

Thank you for your interest in donating to the Chapter.  As you can imagine, maintaining and running a house in a safe, efficient and attractive condition is an expensive endeavor.  While we strive to collect housing income from undergrad members to meet monthly operating expenses, and do so at a competitive cost as compared to other housing options (on campus housing and off campus apartments), the need for large capital improvement projects to keep the house up to date, energy efficient and up to code requires significant investment.  We rely on the generosity of our alumni to provide funds to ensure that the house stays up to date and in a state that attracts new members to the house.

We recently celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the chapter with a Brick Walkway fundraising project.  Funds raised were used to renovate part of the basement into an exercise/workout room and address needed repairs to the basement, laundry room, first floor heating and purchase a new freezer for the kitchen.
We would now like to turn our attention to the upstairs and make much needed renovations to the bedrooms.  On our list is:
  • New doors with metal door jambs
  • Bedroom renovations including new heavy duty flooring
  • Higher efficiency heating system for the second floor
We need your help to turn this into a reality!
