FAQs 

 

I paid Lifetime dues after I graduated, why am I being asked for dues now? 

In 1983, national council merged the payment of lifetime membership into Initiation fees to simplify the payment process for our members. Before and since that time, alumnae have had the opportunity to pay national alumnae dues through their local alumnae chapter.  The national organization now offers the option to pay national alumnae dues directly to the national organization.  These dues support the ongoing work of volunteers and staff focused on alumnae membership on a national level.

I’m a volunteer. Is it required of me to pay dues?

All national officers and appointed roles are required to pay national dues. Local advisory and corporation board members are encouraged to pay dues as well. 

I paid dues to my local chapter- is that the same?

Yes and noWhen you pay your dues locally, you may be paying local and national dues. Alumnae chapters are responsible for sending the $35 national dues portion to national headquarters, while the remaining amount is the local dues portion. 

I belong to an alumnae chapter. Why are their dues higher than $35?

Alumnae chapters typically have local dues that can be used for events and basic operations. Each local chapter can set their local dues and budget accordingly to the activities they provide. If you pay more than $35, that remaining amount is the local dues you are paying into your local alumnae chapter. 

I paid my dues through my alumnae chapter, why am I getting a reminder?

Alumnae chapter leadership is responsible for sending in the national dues portion to NHQ. If you’re getting a reminder, the leadership may not have done that yet. Reach out to your vice president for finance to ensure your national payment is sent accordingly. This will ensure you are nationally recognized as a dues paying member with the organization. 

What do my dues actually go toward?

The $35 is split between operational expenses for the organization to function, as well as events for alumnae. Think national convention and the Connect events hosted by the organization.

Why are dues only $35 for alumnae?

The organization appreciates the support of our alumnae at large. If you would like to provide further fiscal support, you can increase the amount you provide or reach out to the Sigma Kappa Foundation and provide a donation to support alumnae focused programming. 

Why can’t my dues be tax deductible?
Per IRS classification, the Sigma Kappa Sorority is a 501(c)7 member organization; the Sigma Kappa Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Only donations made to a 501(c)3 are tax deductible.
