Alpha Xi Delta Raising Money for New Chapter House
The goal of the campaign, called “Coming Home: The Campaign for 214 North Plum,” is to raise $1.4 million over the next year to build a new house on the same location in order to meet the changing needs of chapter women. The total project will cost approximately $2.6 million.
Alumnae already have donated more than $655,000, with an additional $100,000 matching gift pledged to help launch the public phase of the campaign. Details and draft plans can be viewed online.
“Current chapter members shaped the house design and plans,” said Mary Duncan, vice president of the house corporation board and campaign project manager. “We asked the women to dream big. They dream of an Alpha Xi Delta house with a grand staircase, a dining room to seat 150 members and room for growth.”
An important function of the chapter house will be to provide state-of-the-art study and living space. The design also expands the current floor plan from 8,800 square feet to 10,600 feet of finished space. An additional 4,000 feet of unfinished space will allow for future growth.
Epsilon Chapter was founded in 1903 at the University of South Dakota.
