Fanning the Flame for DU's Future
Since the public unveiling of the Ignite The Charge Campaign last August, excitement for this bold fundraising initiative has been spreading quickly across North America. DU Alumni of all ages are joining our effort to invest in the Campaign’s three main objectives: Individual Development, Chapter Enhancement, and Fraternal Relevance & Innovation.
