“The Kappa Kappa Gamma house at LSU was originally built in 1935. By 2015, the House Board began to realize that the house did not have large enough dining or meeting areas for the growing chapter, and it was in need of major renovations. After several consultations with architects and contractors, it was decided that it was more cost effective to rebuild than to update the existing house.
Our next step was to hire Pennington to conduct a feasibility study to see if we could raise the funds needed. When we decided to move forward with our campaign, Pennington helped us reach out to major donors and was instrumental in getting our lead pledge. Throughout the campaign, they have written our solicitation letters and produced our beautiful multipage mailers. Their assistance in receiving pledges and sending out payment reminders has made our campaign run smoothly and taken the burden of record keeping off of our alumnae volunteers. Because of their guidance, our campaign was a huge success, and we have a beautiful, functional new house as a result.”
