Alpha Phi Omega-Theta Alumni Association Endowment Fund An investment in the future of service
APO-Theta’s Service Program • For over 70 years, APO-Theta has performed a broad scope of service in the Charlottesville community and on UVA grounds, including • Chairing blood drives • Improving Ivy Creek, Camp Holiday Trails, Barrett Day Care • Supporting Garrett Square and Westhaven communities • Starting the University Escort Service • Renovating the Fluvanna County Community Centers • Supporting the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts • Amazingly, the chapter has performed these activities with no outside financial support.
Why is outside financial support a priority? • Current service project funding comes from chapter dues, the occasional car wash, etc. — meager resources at best • More groups approach APO-Theta to do service every semester, often needing APO-Theta to supply wood, materials, and tools • Chapter brothers are willing, but do not have the financial means to fulfill all requests • For this reason,providing a means to enhance and preserve APO’s service program has become a priority for many brothers and alumni
The means to enhance & preserve Theta’s service program: • To provide financial support to the service program, a former long-term advisor of APO-Theta has presented a challenge grant to the alumni of Theta chapter: • He will donate $10,000.00 towards the development of an APO-Theta Endowment Fund provided that Theta alumni match his donation by raising an additional $40,000.00 by February 2004, Theta Chapter’s 75th Anniversary.
