1110 Gerald's room named Boyles is known as the “Heart of The House.”  It bore a heart on its original oak entry door. But there is a much bigger heart in The House. Beta Delta has a long history of philanthropy. In the past 20 years alone, brothers have given over $2,200,000 to renovate 1110 Gerald, build both Wilcox Annex (2007) and New Ski Shack (2017) and create a $1,200,000 scholarship endowment that provides $60,000 a year to worthy Beta Delta undergraduate and graduate school brothers.

There are few Sigma Chi chapters that can take pride and give thanks for Beta Delta's ongoing generosity. In fact, Beta Delta is used as a model for other chapters as what can be accomplished. We stand on the shoulders of visionaries like Professor Frederick Scheuch who established the Greek system at University of Montana. His vision relied on brothers yet to be born.  This is at the heart of Beta Delta's success:  Investing in future brothers.

The House is now well over 100 years old, and keeping it in good repair is expensive. Also, 1110 Gerald is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, so we have an obligation to protect and maintain this national treasure.

With this in mind, Beta Delta's Sigma Chi Building Foundation now announces the Heart of The House Campaign.   This $500,000 fund will help pay for repairs and renovations to our beloved 1110 Gerald.  20% of donations (up to $10,000/year) will go to Missoula Alumni Association to underwrite Captain's Cup Golf Tournament, Homecoming events, active and alumni activities.
