Founders' Day Challenge

Founders Day Challenge

Join the Challenge

Founders’ Day Challenge is an annual fundraising campaign, held on November 2, to support the Lambda Chi Alpha Educational Foundation and celebrate our brotherhood.

Every dollar raised supports our undergraduate brothers by providing educational conferences and programs, scholarships, chapter support, and tools to succeed in college and beyond.

About the Founders’ Day Challenge

Introduced in 2016 as the Day of Giving, this annual fundraising event rallies undergraduate members, alumni brothers, and friends of the fraternity in support of Lambda Chi Alpha.

In 2021, the event was rebranded as the Founders’ Day Challenge and occurs annually for a period of 1,909 minutes beginning on November 2, the founding day of the fraternity.

What makes it a challenge? We’re challenging brothers to compete as chapter teams and to make donations in honor of the impact that Lambda Chi Alpha has had on their lives.

The top three chapters in participation (donors) and impact (dollars) will receive special recognition, awards, and bragging rights.
