Your initiation into your fraternity is a commitment of your time, money and integrity as a part of a lifelong membership.

In my time working for my fraternity, I came across many students and alumni from a variety of fraternities and sororities interested in addressing concerns, but without an understanding of how to take action or learn more about their organization’s operations.

Listed below you’ll find the governing documents in their publicly available places for many fraternities, as well as a link to review that organization’s tax filings, where you can gain insight into the revenue brought in through dues and donations and how some of it was utilized. [Keep in mind that the most recent tax filing available is often several years old]

Our hope is to encourage a generation of fraternity activists, who create movements within our organizations to adjust to the 21st Century and maintain responsible operations and budgets.

= Above-average commitment to transparency
