Beta Tau House Fire Update

Hi Brothers: You may or may not be aware that the Beta Tau House at Tulane was destroyed by a fire on Sunday morning.

The following is taken from an email from Will Woldenberg, VP of the Tulane Association of Zeta Psi:

I have never been more proud than to be associated with the Zeta Psi Fraternity as I am now.

On Monday afternoon, we set up an immediate checking account and PayPal to ensure that we could immediately help our seven (7) brothers who lost all of their possessions in the fire to rapidly resume their student lives.

We set a goal of raising $5,600 by October 24th. Within 48 hours of establishing our PayPal account we raised over $10,000 from the overwhelming support of more than 100 Zetes and our friends.

All of that money – every single dollar – will go those 7 brothers in need. With your donations, you have helped to change the lives of students whom many of you have never met. You’ve shown the Beta Tau Chapter that the bonds of brotherhood are greater than the wisps of familiarity.

It’s now time for the Elders and Actives of the Beta Tau Chapter to focus on the difficult task of rebuilding our home. The brothers of Zeta Psi have been instrumental in helping Beta Tau return from tragedy before - and in the spirit of brotherhood, we need your help again.

Instead of utilizing PayPal, please click on the following link, which will lead you to the donation page for the Tulane Zeta Psi Relief Fund.

With a donation of only $25, you can help move closer to our overall goal of the estimated $30,000 that we need to rebuild our home.

If you would rather donate by check or any other method, please email Will Woldenberg at

Our chapter is resolute and dedicated. We are all driven by a single purpose. We will rebuild our house. Please lend us your support and help Beta Tau rebuild.

Sincerely and In Tau Kappa Phi,

Will Woldenberg Vice-President Tulane Association of Zeta Psi
