The Tau Nu Chapter has been suspended and must vacate the property at the end of the current spring semester and may return at the start of Fall 2020 (A full school year vacant). Our goal is to raise $50,000 in new donor money by the start of fall 2020. For more information on the suspension and our fundraising goal, please visit this link

Grad Weekend Opportunities

Directors Challenge

Past and current HC directors have come together to raise money and pose a challenge to graduate brothers. At this graduate weekend, if the graduate brothers can collectivly raise $10,000 in new donor money over the grad weekend, current and past HC directors will donate an additional $5,500. Sign up for the 1848 club now!


We are going to be giving out prizes to graduate brothers who have participated in chapter events this year. All new donors and all attendees of the work party will be entered in a lottery for chapter and Troy NY themed prizes. Brothers must be present at Pig Dinner to win a prize.

PayPal House Corp Recurring Payment Options



  1. Why should I donate to the undergrads who caused the suspension? Answer: Donations are not benefiting undergraduates who are responsible for the alcohol violation. Their punishment has been the loss have lost nearly two years of their undergrad fraternity experience. There are only going to be 8 brothers left when we are reinstated. This is basically a recolonization. Donations are to benefit the new brothers and get them off to a sound financial start.
  2. Are we going to be reinstated? Answer: While anything could happen, our alumni leaders are working closely with RPI and IHQ to make sure we change the culture and not make the same mistake twice. We have begun laying out a plan with the Dean of Students where we do the work now and the reapplication process will only be a formality in the summer of 2020.

Thanks to those who have pledged or already set up their recurring donations!
