Voluntary National Alumni Dues (VNADs)
Did you know that nearly 65% of the Fraternity’s annual budget comes from undergraduate dues and fees? It’s true! Less than 5% of the membership of the Fraternity (actives) are responsible for 65% of the annual income… and it’s the undergraduates who, arguably, have the least income.
Voluntary National Alumni Dues (VNADs) are non tax-deductible contributions from alumni, family and friends that provide much-needed funds to underwrite important programs and services, such as:
- Area Alumni Events and Activities
- Regional Education and Training
- Online Services and Resources
- Advisor/Advisory Board training
- Chapter Recruitment Assistance
- Chapter Officer Training and Support
- Support to Area Alumni Groups
- Compiling and Publishing the Triangle Review
VNAD income lowers the burden on undergraduate fees and makes more programs possible. Because these dues are not deductible to the donors, the funds can be used to support activity that may not otherwise qualify for educational grants from the Triangle Education Foundation. It is invaluable assistance to the Fraternity, since we can use the funds where Triangle’s need is greatest.
If we want to keep our membership costs competitive while also providing the important support services our active and alumnus chapters need, VNAD income is vital!
Now you can pay your VNADs online via credit card (+fee) or electronic bank transfer (E-check). Any amount is appreciated and will be put to good use to support our membership. Just click on the button below to make your investment – and thank you in advance for your support!
