ANN UAL REPORT SPRING 2016


F ROM T H E C H A IR M A N

Dear Brothers, As Chairman of the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation, I am pleased to provide you with the 2015 Annual Report. This past year posed a challenge for the Educational Foundation to have a significant return on its investments. As it was for most non-profits, the down markets reduced the return on our invested monies. Yet, the demand for financing the educational needs of our undergraduates continues to increase. That is why private, non-restricted dollars are vital to the success of not only the Educational Foundation but the Fraternity as well. We were able to provide nearly $100,000 in educational programming, scholarships and grants to our undergraduate members. This past year the number of Chapter Educational Funds (CEF) increased to 25. A CEF allows alumni to give specifically to their chapter with the donation completely tax deductible. These contributions can be used for educational programming, or the chapter can borrow from the fund for house renovations. We are also very proud of the increasing membership in our Delta Society, the Educational Foundation’s undergraduate giving program. Last year, we had over 125 undergraduates donate the minimum $20. The Delta Society is designed to encourage giving at an early age and the satisfaction that their contribution is going to programming to make us a better Fraternity. Two major legacy gifts were given to the Educational Foundation last year. Gary Grubacich (UC Santa Barbara '68) and Dr. James F. Elrod (Indiana '47) both left a substantial gift to the Educational Foundation through their estate. These gifts were made through the Byron R. Lewis Heritage Society, and I encourage our alumni to consider leaving a legacy gift to Sigma Pi.

Finally, our greatest achievement of the past year was the trust and support we earned from our 1,323 donors who together contributed $532,936. The Creed of the Fraternity begins with “I believe in Sigma Pi,” and we are grateful to all those that truly believe and have contributed to the Educational Foundation. On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees and the thousands of undergraduate men who benefited from your generosity this past year, I thank you for your loyal support.

A Sigma Pi man is well kept, he is bold, he is strong, he takes pride in the service of his country and he believes in something greater than himself. As the flag is carried, the torch of progress will forever remind us of all the things Sigma Pi has taught us, to strive and always to believe.”

According to the College Board, the average annual cost of attendance was $19,548 at a four-year public institution and a staggering $43,921 at a private school in 2015. Financial support of our members’ education pursuits is more important than ever. Accordingly, traditional scholarships remain a core of the Educational Foundation’s work. In 2015, it held over $2 million in temporary and permanent scholarship funds and was pleased to award 99 scholarships to students from 34 schools totaling approximately $80,000. Educational Foundation scholarships range from those given to new initiates for outstanding achievement during their associate (“pledge”) membership period, to veterans returning to school after serving their country, and to young alumni working on advanced graduate and professional degrees.

Mid-Year Leadership Conference Every year, Sigma Pi chapter leaders assemble in Saint Louis, MO (strategically centered to facilitate travel from across the U.S. and Canada) for the Fraternity’s Mid-Year Leadership Conference (“MYLC”). The weekend- long program provides intensive training to each chapter’s newly elected officers. Attendees are instructed in areas such as planning, goal setting, organizational management, and leadership development. With a generous gift from PGS Donald Cox (Temple ’55), the Foundation was again proud to provide significant grant funding for MYLC in 2015. With the Foundation’s support, over 523 men were able to attend MYLC this past year. In all, over 4,800 Sigma Pi men have attended MYLC since its inception in 2002.

CORPORATE MATCHING Numerous companies match an employee’s

Held every two years during the summer in Nashville, Tennessee (home of the Executive Office), Sigma Pi University (“SPU”) is a program focused on personal development. It is open to all Sigma Pi men interested in becoming better leaders and citizens. At SPU, the focus is on values-based leadership. The strong values of Sigma Pi make this program particularly impactful. The results are not just leaders, but strong leaders with a heightened sense of values- awareness that can make a real difference in their communities. Made possible by a generous endowment from Brother Anthony “Tony” Siress (Santa Clara ’87), the founder of several successful technology, consulting, and venture capital enterprises including Tidalwave Technologies (now a part of Symantec Corporation) and Siress AG Consulting, SPU has been supported by the Foundation since 1999. This year nearly 100 men attended SPU. Since the program began in 1999, SPU has trained over 2,200 men to be not only leaders of their chapters and on campus, but leaders in life.

L EGACY

leaving a lasting

by Lisa Pearson, Foundation Director

What comes to mind when you think of Gary Grubacich? Hawaiian shirts, old war stories, attorney, a dear friend and/or a fraternity brother. For those that knew Gary, they would no doubt agree that he was a man with a big heart and deep devotion to his causes, especially when it came to giving back to his fraternity.

8 + SP RING 2016 / A N N UA L R EP ORT ED IT ION


Gary was very dedicated to Sigma Pi, and it definitely showed in his countless hours and energy he put into advising Alpha-Omicron Chapter at UC Santa Barbara. So, it is understandable when he suddenly passed away on January 12, 2015, he would leave a legacy gift to the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation and to the young men of Sigma Pi Alpha-Omicron Chapter at UC Santa Barbara. The Educational Foundation is proud to recognize Gary’s gift of $ 318,500 with $127,000 unrestricted in nature to help further the organization’s mission. The remaining $191,500 was restricted for use in a Chapter Educational Fund for the undergraduate brothers of Alpha-Omicron his collegiate chapter and where he served as Chapter Director. Gary attended UC Santa Barbara and was a member of Sigma Pi Fraternity from 1965 to 1968 before he was drafted into the Vietnam War where he served in the U.S. Air Force for three years. Upon returning to the US, Gary went to work as a System Engineer in Michigan for General Motors (GM) and completed his BA with honors at Oakland University in 1973. He returned to Santa Barbara continuing his employment at GM for a total of 17 years. While serving on a local jury, Gary decided he wanted to be an attorney. So, in 1988, Gary was admitted to the California Western School of Law in San Diego graduating cum laude in 1991 with his J.D. degree. Grubacich was employed as an Attorney in Civil Litigation and Appeals at the Santa Barbara law firm McCarthy & Kroes for 23 years until his death. In 2007, when Alpha-Omicron Chapter was looking to re-charter on the UC Santa Barbara campus, Gary jumped at the chance to be involved and agreed to be the Chapter Director and served in that position on the local level until his death. Speaking with many of the collegiate men and alumni from Alpha-Omicron, all agreed, Gary was that friend and leader you could call upon in time of need or just to talk, and he was always there. Great mentor and leader! Serving as Chapter Director wasn’t enough for Gary when it came to serving Sigma Pi; he was nominated and elected to serve on the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation Board of Trustees in 2010. While sitting on the Educational Foundation, Gary served as Vice Chair of Legal. Upon his death, he had just been re-elected to serve another four years. He really thought hard about the idea of running for re-election, as he was starting to look forward to retirement. Gary was a man who could talk to anybody at length on just about any subject matter; definitely wasn’t afraid to share his thoughts and opinions. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and the young men of Alpha-Omicron Chapter of Sigma Pi.

"Gary was an excellent brother, chapter director, mentor, and friend. He lived and breathed Sigma Pi, and this commitment to the fraternity was exemplified in his generous donation to the SPEF." - John Richards (UC Santa Barbara '16)

When I look at the world and ask how I can make it better I think about Sigma Pi and the role we have in developing greatness. I give to Sigma Pi because our brotherhood

makes

a

difference.

Some years when I have been able to only give $100, I know that it still makes an impact on some young man. My wife and I make Sigma Pi a priority among the ways that we give back, and I hope others join us in supporting these worthy men." - Ian Itschner (Oregon State '93)

"Without a doubt, joining Sigma Pi Fraternity has been one of the best decisions I've made in college. As a Student Body President, Sigma Pi has given me the skills to be an exceptional leader. My favorite part about the fraternity is the financial backing for its members. We not only talk the talk, but walk the walk. Without financial contributions from alumni, my success at college would not have been the same. This is a program that needs to expand to further its impact on undergrads.

We can come back to life.” This letter was written by Brother Edward Gano Lee (Kentucky ’85) in 1977. Lee initiated into the brotherhood of Sigma Pi at the age of 72 while living next door to the Chapter house at Kentucky. He ate his meals with the members while watching the University of Kentucky basketball games. In his obituary, he mentioned his membership in the Fraternity; his “boys” served as honorary pallbearers.
