DKExcellence: The Four Corners Campaign

Think back on your days at the DKE house.  Like so many of us, you probably left UNC with happy memories, life-long friends, and valuable skills that have helped you become the man you are today. Can’t picture your life without Beta DKE? We couldn’t either and that’s why we launched the DKExcellence: The Four Corners Campaign earlier this year.  As alumni, it’s our honor and duty to ensure that Beta’s legacy lives on forever.

We have identified four areas of need that we will be focusing on in this effort.

  • Increase the capital in the Caldwell Fund, which provides for ongoing renovation, major repairs, and general upkeep and maintenance.
  • The creation of the Academic Initiative Fund to support the Academic Excellence Program established in 2012. The DKE Alumni Board wishes to permanently establish and encourage academic excellence at DKE and build on the rising academic success of the past few years. 
  • The creation of a fund to provide benefits to Meg Miller, Beta DKE’s long-time house mother/manager.  Over the next five years, Meg is going to start to phase out of the kitchen and go into “retirement.” She will stay on as property manager as long as she and the board feel her health will allow.  Over the last 21 years, there have been numerous conversations on how to repay Meg for her commitment and this fund will allow us to do just that. You can make your pledge to the campaign by clicking here to download a pledge form.
  • The Kitchen and Dining Room Expansion and Renovation Project. The major goal of this project is to expand out toward the Carolina Inn, allowing us to increase our dining and living space. As it is, we only can seat 40 in the dining room and we currently average around 80 active members. We want to be able to provide a space that is more functional, can accommodate the group, and is competitive with what other fraternities on campus can offer.

 

More details will be forthcoming about the campaign.If you’d like more details, to volunteer for the effort, ask questions, or make a pledge, please contact Andy Spencer ’80 (acspencer121457@gmail.com or 404-863-1162) or Scott Smith ’80(scottsmith@unc.edu or 919-740-5197). 

Honoring DKExcellence: The Four Corners Campaign and the Legacy It Will PreserveJoin us at the DKE house for a celebration on Saturday, October 7! This year alumni weekend will share the spotlight with a commemoration of DKExcellence: The Four Corners Campaign. The 1851 Award will be presented to Dave Phillips '65, and campaign donors will be recognized. We hope to have renderings of the new kitchen and dining room space, and as always there will be food, fun, and the opportunity to catch up and tell old stories with good friends.

Additional details on the time will be posted at www.dkeunc.com once the UNC vs. Notre Dame kickoff time is set.

If you have not yet contributed to The Four Corners Campaign, you can make your gift or pledge by October 1 to ensure you are recognized among our generous donors at this celebration.
