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.

Delta Tau recognizes the importance of serving our community, providing community
awareness and education about our National Philanthropies, and raising money to benefit our
causes. As a chapter we take part in several service projects and opportunities both on and off
our campus. We do a diverse amount of work in 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. This event serves as a great
comedy show for those in the audience and everyone involved. It is also a great way for us to
raise money for our Ultra Violet Campaign. This past year we raise over $4,000! As a chapter,
we have hosted this event for more than 30 years and it is a tradition we hope to continue
having.
Sigma Kappa has five philanthropies: Sigma Kappa Foundation, Inherit the Earth, Gerontology,
Maine Seacoast Mission, and Alzheimer’s Disease Research. Delta Tau strives to include service
and philanthropy work for all five philanthropies. We help with several activities at one of our
local assisted living homes, participate in a highway clean up, and attend the Walk to End
Alzheimer’s in Little Rock every fall. Sigma Kappa’s main philanthropy focus is, Gerontology
with an emphasis on Alzheimer’s Research. We raise money and have been one of the top
fundraising teams for the past three years. We have one of the biggest teams to attend the
walk. This is an event our chapter looks forward to every year. One of our favorite fundraising
events is SigKap & Cheese. Members from our chapter will make and serve mac & cheese to
anyone on our campus who attends. The proceeds from this event will benefit the Sigma Kappa
Foundation PULSE fund. The Sigma Kappa Foundation creates and funds scholarships,
leadership and philanthropic initiatives that reflect the values of Sigma Kappa Sorority.
