Chapter Educational Account

The Miami Chapter Educational Account is the educational counterpart of the 400 East Vine Club related to undergraduate activities and is under the umbrella of the DUEF.  Donations to this account are tax-deductible and eligible for company matches.  

Chapter Housing Account

The Miami Chapter Housing Account is the educational counterpart of the 400 East Vine Club related to the operating expenses of the house and is under the umbrella of the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation (DUEF).  Donations to this account are tax-deductible and eligible for company matches.  This newly established fund allows for up to $32,000 per year of donated money to be spent on the education portion of our chapter house’s operating expenses.  

Chapter Legacy Plan

The Miami Chapter Legacy Plan is a DUEF endowment fundraising initiative that helps cover registration costs for more men from the chapter to attend national DU educational programs. Once fully funded, the Miami Chapter Legacy Plan will be able to fund 12 scholarships to national educational programs.  Previously, the money for these leadership programs came from either the CEA or the 400 East Vine Club and had to be replenished yearly.
