The Sigma Xi Fund

The Sigma Xi Fund is one of the most effective ways for our members to invest in the future of our Society and the global scientifc endeavor. Remember that almost all of Sigma Xiís educational, program, and leadership development funding each year comes not from dues, but from charitable donations received from our members.

Your contribution to Sigma Xi is greatly appreciated and we would like to acknowledge your support of our mission. Unless you request that your donation be anonymous Sigma Xi will recognize all financial and in-kind donations and pledges-in-process on a quarterly basis on our Web site. The value of matching gifts from your employer will be added to your gift total once the match is received.

Please consider joining us in making a donation or pledge today that will bring about a brighter tomorrow at one of these recognition levels:

  • COMPANIONíS CLUB—$500-$999
    The Companions Club is Sigma Xi's oldest donor recognition group, originally established in the 1990s. Companion's Club membership acknowledges gifts of $500-$9,999 with the donor receiving the unique gold "Companions Club" lapel pin. This pin continues to reflect the wearer's deep commitment to the Society's mission and our continuing gratitude for their support.

  • 125th LEGACY LEAGUE - $1000-$9,999
    The 125th Legacy Club acknowledges gifts of $1,000 or more with the newly published 125th History of Sigma Xi. Written specifically for the members of the Legacy Club, the history book presents an overview with many photos and illustrations of the Society's heritage and the many members who have played important roles in its 125 year history.

  • THE RECORD SOCIETY—$10,000 and above
    The Record Society comprises supporters who make a one-time gift of $10,000 or more, or make a planned gift in excess of $25,000 anytime during a given fiscal year after July 1, 2009.
Multi-part donations and pledges fulfilled on a schedule of your own creation are always gratefully received.

II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organizationís governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

III. To have access to the organizationís most recent financial statements.
