What is Kappa Sigma Philanthropy?
Kappa Sigma is dedicated to serving others and contributing to a variety of philanthropic organizations. Although all chapters have the ability to contribute to whatever organization they choose, Kappa Sigma does have national philanthropy, the Military Heroes Campaign.
The Military Heroes Campaign is solely run by the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. It is committed to providing ongoing care for military veterans and their families and was started with the idea that every veteran deserves a stable life and a community full of supporters. Kappa Sigma organizations work hard to raise the funds necessary to provide stability in military veterans' lives. Since 2007, Kappa Sigma has raised over $2 million dollars for veterans across North America. Kappa Sigma chapters hold 5ks, golf tournaments, and many other events to raise money and awareness for this cause.
Additionally, Kappa Sigma holds an annual event called Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Month. During this competition, held in the month of November, all chapters and colonies are encouraged to raise as much money as possible for the organization. They are awarded points based on three criteria: social media, dollars raised per man, and hours dedicated per man.
Kappa Sigma’s Military Heroes Campaign donates to organizations dedicated to the betterment of veterans’ lives such as the Seal Legacy Foundation, Veterans Moving Forward, Homes For Our Troops, and many others. This cause is important to all Kappa Sigma brothers and many chapters work hard to ensure that they are fundraising hard enough to contribute lots to these organizations.
