Minerva Club is the parent organization for SAE. Our mission is to support the gentleman of SAE at Kansas State. We do this by supplying snacks during finals week, awarding grants each semester to any active member who achieves a GPA of 3.5 or better, and by funding small improvements to the house as our budget allows. We also help plan a Family Weekend and Father/Son Weekend during the fall semester and a Mother/Son weekend during the spring semester. We are able to fund these activities by collecting membership dues from each family and by organizing fundraising events such as silent auctions during these specially planned
weekends. All funds collected by the Minerva Club are used to support the SAE fraternity at Kansas State. Dues are $100 per family for the 2012-2013 year and are collected at the beginning of the fall semester.
In case you are wondering about the name Minerva, Minerva is a Roman goddess often
equated with the Greek goddess Athena. She is the goddess of the SAE fraternity and fraternity brothers are known as the Loyal Sons of Minerva.

With the fall semester behind us already, an update on what has been happening
with Minerva Club:
Family Day 2012 was a huge success!
Our thanks to dad Jerry Albert for getting us a great deal on the food for the
cookout and then delivering it to SAE and grilling up the burgers and hot dogs for
the approximately 100 people in attendance. It was much appreciated!
The auction which followed the cookout raised over $2000. Thanks to all who
participated by either donating items, bidding on items or both!
Finally, thanks to all who have paid their membership dues.
Between auction proceeds, and membership dues, Minerva Club has been able to
purchase wood blinds for the three windows in the library, and with the help of
seamstress/mom Kristen Redd, we are getting new curtains for the large windows
in the living room. In addition, we supplied snacks during finals week. These
included pizza, Chipotle, ice cream and Red Bull for all to enjoy while they studied.
We also expect to award grants to at least 8 young men with a 3.5 or above GPA
during mom’s weekend in the spring.
Thank you all for your support!
Welcome new Pledges and Parents!
Mom’s Weekend will be the weekend of April 13, 2013
