Jeff and Kim Johnson Existence and Expansion Endowment Fund

When the Jeff and Kim Johnson Endowment was created in 2007, Jeff and Kim Johnson announced that they would contribute up to $5,000 per year to the fund for the following 10 years based on the fraternity's ability to meet established criteria for expansion and sustainment of chapters. Based on results from the 2007-2008 academic year, the Johnson's pledged a donation of $4,200, but challenged Convention attendees to pledge $7,500 to the fund, indicating they would match the amount if the goal was reached. The total pledges by attendees was nearly $15,000, thus the Johnson's increased their donation to $7,500, bringing the total pledges to the endowment during Convention to over $22,000.
