A Theta Chi alumni corporation is a legally incorporated 501(c)(7) not-for-profit corporation managed by an elected board of Theta Chi volunteers with the sole purpose of overseeing and managing the alumni's long-term assets. Because of its purpose, an alumni corporation is not the same as a chapter advisory board. Alumni corporations associated with active Theta Chi chapters may apply for financial assistance through The Norwich Housing Corporation.
