Gift Acceptance Fee

The Delta Sigma Phi Foundation implements a Gift Acceptance Fee on completely restricted donations and pledges. This allows the Foundation to offset expenses related to restricted funds that include staff time, donor stewardship and database maintenance.

The fees follow this scale based on donation amount.

  • 10% on gifts/pledges of $999 or less
  • 7% on gifts/pledges from $1,000-$49,999
  • 6% on gifts/pledges from $50,000-$99,999
  • 4% on gifts/pledges from $100,000 – $499,999
  • 2% on gifts/pledges from $500,000 – $1,499,999
  • 1% on gifts/pledges from $1,500,000 and above

Partially-restricted pledges and unrestricted dollars are not subject to the fee.
