Welcome to the NPHC Project Excellence Brick Campaign!

We are looking forward to bringing Project Excellence and the NPHC Plaza to life and it would not be possible without the support of alumni, donors and friends. Opportunities to engage, empower, inspire and support this project, as well as the National Pan-Hellenic Council, are detailed below.

Brick Sale and Giving Level Information

Purchase a Brick 

Community members are encouraged to purchase a brick and leave a permanent legacy at the NPHC Plaza walkway for $500 or more. Bricks are included in all Giving Levels found on this page. Please note you will not physically receive a brick; all purchased bricks will be included in the construction of the plaza.

Due to the limited number of bricks available per the NPHC organization, sales will be monitored each day and confirmed with donors via email. 

Brick Sale Timeline

Please note that bricks purchased after Sunday, May 1, 2022 will not be included in the initial construction of the plaza and will be installed after the unveiling in October. Purchase your brick today to make sure it’s included!
