What is Philanthropy?

Philanthropy essentially means ‘The love of humanity’ and Greek life seeks to encourage every member to participate in events that support charitable organizations. This could mean volunteering at a local charity as a group or on one’s own to fundraising for national organizations that benefit the community as a whole. During the spring term the community gathers together for ‘Greek Week’ – a week full of events that help raise money for various charities. Events range to the classic tug-o-war to all night volleyball or a sing-a-thon. Different events occur throughout the week in order to prevent interfering with studies.
