Chapter Philanthropy

As Sigma Kappa's we hold philanthropy very near and dear to our hearts. Our members strive to stay in touch with our community by averaging fifteen hours of service, per member, each semester. Therefore, as a chapter, we log roughly 1,000 plus hours in a single semester alone.

Delta Tau recognizes the importance of serving our community, providing community awareness and education about our National Philanthropy, and raising money to benefit our cause. As a chapter we take part in and host many different service projects on campus and in our community in the hopes of making an impact and providing knowledge to those we come in contact with. Our biggest campus fundraising event is the Greek God competition. In this competition, men nominated by chapters from the Panhellenic, IFC, and NPHC communities compete in a male beauty pageant. The event serves as a great comedy show for those in the audience and a great way for us to raise money for our Ultra Violet Campaign. This past year we raised over $3,000! As a chapter, we have hosted this event for more than 30 years and it is a tradition we hope lives on for many more.

Sigma Kappa's main philanthropy, Gerontology with an emphasis on Alzheimer's Disease Research, is very important to our chapter, as this disease has impacted many of our members and their families. Throughout the year we hold several on campus fundraising events in order to raise money for the National Alzheimer's Association. Our favorite event is Sigma Kappacino; during this event we sell coffee with the help from Zeteo, a local coffee shop, to students on their way to and from classes. Also, each year our entire chapter travels to Little Rock to take part in and support The Walk to End Alzheimer's. The Delta Tau chapter has been the top fundraising team for the past two years, at our local walk. This year we raised over $11,000!
