Sigma Phi Epsilon House Fund

A Firm Foundation for a New Generation.

Monmouth College has a long tradition of supporting both men’s and women’s fraternal organizations on campus. These organizations contribute significantly to our students’ personal development and supporting them is an important initiative in the College’s strategic plan.

After 50 years in the Fraternity Complex, Illinois Gamma Chapter will be moving in to a stately, Queen Anne-style residence, located at 815 E. Broadway. The chapter house will join several other fraternities and sororities as a modern-day Greek Row for Monmouth College. This house will reflect the character, strength, achievement, and legacy of Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

Renovation plans include interior and exterior updates, along with landscaping for the front and back of the house. The property also includes an adjacent garage that will be completely remodeled and converted into a chapter/ritual room and will also serve as a location to host special events and recruitment activities. 

We aim to raise more than $450,000 in current gifts and pledges for house renovations, demonstrating strong momentum by a cadre of brothers ready to step up and lead.

Sigma Phi Epsilon Fundraising Progress

Goal amount: $450,000+ Our Goal
Current amount:$236,195 Raised and Pledged

Construction on the house will begin when 100 percent of the renovation costs are pledged and 75 percent is in hand. Once the funds for the renovations are reached, we hope to push for an additional $300,000 to establish an endowed maintenance fund that will ensure the longevity and maintenance of the new Sigma Phi Epsilon Illinois Gamma Chapter House.

Together, let us share the heart of Sigma Phi Epsilon with future brothers for generations to come. Let’s pass along the legacy of brotherhood with a fraternity house our active members can be proud to call home.

There are unique opportunities for naming, memorial, and leadership gifts.
