The Helping Hand Initiative

The Helping Hand has been the guiding principle of Theta Chi Fraternity since 1856. Countless generations of brothers have depended on, and succeeded by, the extension of the Helping Hand. At times, the Helping Hand can go unseen. It is the service of a brother after a long day at work. It is the alumnus who dedicates his weekend to mentor a chapter officer. It is the hours spent away from his family to benefit the Fraternity. It is the alumnus who gives of his wealth to support a collegiate brother. The Helping Hand comes in many forms, but all are necessary for the success of Theta Chi.

Our brothers still need your help. No matter where you are, or what stage of life you are in, you can extend a Helping Hand to Theta Chi. After college, we dedicate ourselves to building our careers, supporting our communities, and starting families. With each generation of men coming into our brotherhood, a new generation of alumni must stand up and lead, supporting our collegiate members.

The Helping Hand Initiative is your opportunity to aid our collegiate brothers. It is a nationwide alumni engagement effort with a goal of engaging new alumni in actively supporting Theta Chi. What does active engagement mean? There are three key areas brothers like you can extend a Helping Hand to Theta Chi:
