Philanthropy and Community Service
The UW fraternity & sorority community raises over $500,000 a year for local and international charities and organizations.
Each chapter hosts many events throughout the year in order to raise money, usually culminating with a week long philanthropy event. Philanthropy events can range between late-night feeds at the chapter house, flag football tournaments, and canoo races, to date auctions, or dance offs.
Typically, most sorority chapters in the community will participate in a chapter's philanthropy event; while most fraternities will participate in sorority events.
In order to encourage maximum participation at each chapter's philanthropy events, there is a limit of one (1) fraternity philanthropy week per each week.
Chapters may apply for a specific week up to one (1) year in advance, and the application can be found under this link:
