GSI FUNDRAISING

GSI is both a service project and DU’s international philanthropy.

GSI Fundraising Guide

All DU chapters are expected to raise at least $1,000 for GSI each academic year with money used to help fund the overhead costs of putting on GSI.

Chapters raise money for GSI in a variety of ways. From walk-a-thons to charity golf tournaments, chapters promote the purpose behind GSI in addition to raising money. To assist our chapters with their fundraising efforts, we have put together a GSI Fundraising Guide as a comprehensive resource to help plan and manage the philanthropy event. It offers event suggestions, tips, information about collecting donations, sending money to the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation and more.

Fundraising Levels and AwardS

To recognize chapters for their fundraising efforts, we have created fundraising levels and awards. In three of the levels, chapters can be guaranteed participants in a global trip for the following academic year. (All fundraising must be received prior to a participant confirming their registration.) GSI Awards are presented each summer at our Leadership Institute.
