"If it weren't for…AGR" stories are the ones that inspire us to work hard and ensure our organization continues Making Better Men that live out our Promise and Values every day. These stories were the inspiration for the title and theme of The Educational Foundation of Alpha Gamma Rho's 2016 Growth Report. Check out how "If it weren't for..YOU" none of this would be possible. Thank you to our Brothers and Friends who continue to support the Foundation and help provide each and every Brother with superior life-long personal development and professional success. What is your "If it weren't for…AGR" story?

At the present time a significant number of alumni donate annually to support the Fraternity. Their contributions vary in size and represent the revenues of the National Fraternity. Because of Alpha Gamma Rho's strong ties with its alumni and the programs provided by the National Fraternity, AGR has been one of the leaders among fraternities in the amount of support received from alumni. All Brothers are encouraged to support the work of the Foundation by making tax deductible contributions, donating assets, assigning life insurance or naming the Foundation in their will.
