Frat Toasts Cohen For Renovation Donation

Nov 26 2013 | 10:34am ET

The brothers of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity chapter at the University of Pennsylvania will soon have working plumbing and heating—and they've got their brother, SAC Capital Advisors founder Steven Cohen, to thank.

The fraternity broke ground on the renovations to their 84-year-old Philadelphia home on Nov. 9, just one day after Cohen's hedge fund pleaded guilty to insider-trading charges.

Cohen, a member of the fraternity in the 1970s during his undergraduate days at Penn, put up $2 million for the repairs, half of the $4 million ZBT sought. Cohen made the donation in April 2009, according to the New York Post.
