A campaign by Zeta Psi Fraternity

1847 Pledge Challenge (2023)

Looking for the final 2023 results: 


The 1847 Pledge Challenge has wrapped up for the year - THANK YOU to all the Brothers who have participated to make this year's Challenge so competitive.  Donations are still being accepted if you would like to help Zeta Psi this year.

The 1847 Pledge Challenge is a competition launched in 2017, promoting the vision of Bill Comstock and some inter-chapter rivalry while raising money to support membership education for Zeta Psi Fraternity.  We have been launching it around March 27th each year, to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the Theta Xi Chapter at the University of Toronto, making Zeta Psi the first international fraternity for over 144 years.  This is a point of pride that all Zetes share, regardless of nationality.

Last year over 600 Zetes participated in the challenge from 63 different chapters.  This year, our goal is to have over 1,000 Zetes participate, with representation from all Active Chapters as well as many of our Inactive Chapters.

Congratulations to the Phi Epsilon Chapter (University of Maryland), which was the Grand Champion in 2022!  Can they maintain their championship this year?

Rivalries are recognized, and champions celebrated, in some regional categories as well, and last year championship belts were taken by:

Top European ChapterPsi Omicron Chapter (Paris)
Top Canadian ChapterTheta Xi Chapter (Toronto)
Top American ChapterZeta Tau Chapter (Michigan State)
Top Young Chapter (less than 10 years old)Kappa Delta Chapter (George Mason)
Top Phoenix Chapter (inactive chapter): Gamma Chapter (Syracuse)

Which Chapters will win this year?  You can help dictate the outcome.  Participate, and get your Brothers to participate.  A donation of at least $18.47 is all that it takes to show your pride in your chapter, and in Zeta Psi.

NOTE:  All transactions processed in US$ so please choose the currency conversion option appropriate for your country.
