SIGMA TAU GAMMA FOUNDATION's Fundraiser:

Ellsworth C. Dent "Man of the Year" Endowment

SIGMA TAU GAMMA FOUNDATION's Photo

THE STORY:

The Ellsworth C. Dent "Man of the Year" Award is annually given to honor the most outstanding undergraduate leaders of Sigma Tau Gamma. Named for a charter member of Delta chapter at Emporia State University, the Dent award is the highest honor the fraternity can bestow upon a student member. It was established in 1966. Selection of the five finalist is based upon a number of criteria, including leadership, extracurricular activities, scholastic achievement, and service to college and chapter.

Each Dent Finalist has received a $500 honorarium and the Dent Man-of-the-Year a $1,000 honorarium from the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation.

In the early years Dorothy Dent, widow of Ellsworth C. Dent, funded the honorariums with an annual $3,000 gift to the Foundation. In 1999, after Mrs. Dent died, the Foundation received a bequest from the Dent estate to continue the program.

The limited size of the bequest and the loss of investment income due to the recent economic turmoil endanger the future of the honorariums. The Society of the Seventeen decided to lead a campaign to restore the Dent Award endowment to preserve and ensure the future of this great program.

I am pleased to report on our success. To date we have received just over $65,000 in pledges of our $100,000 endowment goal, with nearly $54,00 raised.

Many who have pledged their support were not Dent Award finalists. They are successful and loyal brothers who believe in the program and honor its tradition through their generosity. Please help support our efforts by making a gift today. A gift in any amount is appreciated.

Fraternally yours,

Kenley R. Hoover, DMF
22nd National President
Chairman, Society of the Seventeen
