The South Carolina Delta chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon won’t have a Spring Formal or their traditional Paddy Murphy party this semester, but the money that would have funded those and other social events will be shared by several area philanthropies.

In honor of fraternity brother Mathew Grossmann, who took his own life in the fall, they are donating $4,000 to Hilinski’s Hope. “Ryan Hilinski has been very supportive and giving of his time to our brothers in need. We are proud to make this donation to such a worthy cause and we would like to encourage others to donate as well,” said Zachary Hunter, President of the fraternity.

The chapter also made a $4,000 donation to “Feed Our Heroes”, a non-profit started by Head Football Coach Will Muschamp and his wife Carol. “Because COVID-19 has affected us in many ways, the Muschamps wanted to help provide meals to the frontline workers in the healthcare field through non-profits who are partnering with local restaurants to provide those meals,” Hunter said.

The fraternity has also made a $4,000 donation to the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for Students.

In addition to these generous gifts, the brothers of SAE, have donated $500 each to their House Cooks, Chris Croft and Bobby Jennings, to help them meet expenses until they receive unemployment benefits through the State of South Carolina. “We have also established a GoFundMe page to help both of them with incidental expenses that they may incur during this time, and to date, we have raised almost $6,500,” Hunter said.
