Chapter History

The Gamma Zeta Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma at NAU was originally founded on September 21, 1968. The chapter disbanded in the 1970s and was reinstalled at NAU in April 2014. Since its reinstallation, the chapter chartered in under 12 months and has since formed a very strong brotherhood, become involved with other chapters on campus, and has hosted its first major philanthropy event to raise money for the Special Olympics during the 2016 academic year.

Chapter Funds

A Chapter Fund is a restricted account from the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation. In this case, the restriction is that the funds and earnings on the investment of the funds may be used only for a particular chapter, meaning that if you donate to your chapter’s fund, it may only be used for your chapter.

Chapter Funds may be used to:

  • Award scholarships based on academic and leadership criteria
  • Technology grants for purchase and upgrade of chapter computer technology
  • Educational facility grants to the selected chapter
  • Leadership education grants for participation in institutes, seminars, and conventions.

The Foundation manages the fund. This management includes fund accounting, investing, and preparing required reports for the Internal Revenue Service. The policy of the Foundation Board of Trustees is to involve chapter alumni association leaders in the creation of criteria, formation of program priorities and selection of grant recipients.
