What is your favorite SAE memory as an undergraduate or alumnus?

Several members of the Chapter volunteered to repair bicycles one Christmas. The program, Toys-For-Tots was an effort by the Junior Auxiliary to provide gifts for those in need. The local paper pictured us at work and I know the community was appreciative of our efforts to assist at a time when the economy was experiencing a severe recession. On another occasion SAE accounting majors were asked to prepare tax returns for those who were unable to afford a preparer. In most cases we were able to bring a smile to faces who received an unexpected refund. 

Why is giving back to SAE important to you?

I am mindful of a quote from Sir Winston Churchill – ‘We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.’ George H.W. Bush spoke about, ‘A Thousand Points of Light’ and the impact of a small amount of time given by all Americans to a charitable cause. I knew Paul Jacobs the past Eminent Supreme Archon who was a member of Mississippi Theta and impressed me with his devotion to SAE and the importance of serving at the SAE national level should the opportunity ever present itself.

What motivated you to join the SAE Foundation Board of Trustees?

Hopefully some of my past business experiences will be helpful in ensuring the Foundation’s financial commitments exceed expectations for generations to come.

What is your favorite SAE memory as an undergraduate or alumnus?

My favorite SAE memory is telling my SAE father, John Hill, that I had pledged SAE. It was the first time I had ever seen my father cry. 

Why is giving back to SAE important to you?

My parents both had servants’ hearts. They supported their church, their schools, their fraternity and sorority, their professions and their community.  Their example has continued to inspire me, my sisters, our children and grandchildren to continue that family legacy. SAE has provided me with an abundance of lifelong friends and challenged me to be the best version of myself. My goal is to pay that forward.

What motivated you to join the SAE Foundation Board of Trustees?

In my work to help re-charter SAE at the University of Texas, I have become friends with many of members of the national leadership team.  I share their vision that SAE has an important role to play in inspiring young men to be True Gentleman and contribute to their universities and communities. I am excited to join the SAE team and hopefully make a meaningful contribution. 

Matthew Weinstein (Northern Iowa ’94)

What is your favorite SAE memory as an undergraduate or alumnus?

The National Leadership Schools I attended were the most impactful, but it was the road trips with my chapter brothers to Province Tau leadership schools that I remember most. We rented RVs to drive to

schools in North and South Dakota, and the stories when we got back are ones I remember today.

Why is giving back to SAE important to you?

Like so many others, SAE provided me some of the most important lessons of my life, as well as my closest friends. There is no one activity that prepares undergraduates for professional success more than Greek life, and SAE for me. As an undergraduate, I promised that after I graduated, I would at least donate my chapter dues for life. That was a small price to pay for the education SAE – and SAEs -provided me.

What motivated you to join the SAE Foundation Board of Trustees?

As my children have gotten older and my career more established, I have the time to contribute more to

my community. Serving as a Foundation Trustee feels like a great opportunity to both give back and take advantage of the benefits of SAE in a different way than I did as an undergraduate while still working to ensure the long-term health of the Levere Memorial Temple, SAE, and the SAE Foundation.
