Philanthropy & Service

Phi Gamma Delta’s Challenge:

Donate $2 million and contribute 200,000 service hours this year.

The latest report shows Phi Gams annually:
  • Raised $1,532,900 (106 chapters reporting) = $210/member
  • Contributed 160,010 service hours (91 chapters reporting) = 25 hours/man

Report Philanthropy & Service

Examples of Philanthropy & Service

Philanthropy: Battle of the Bands, Talent Show, Football Run, Dance-A-Thon, etc.

Service: Giving blood, building a Habitat house, singing at a nursing home, working at a soup kitchen, providing services/goods. There has been a recent shift within the college community toward hosting fundraising events instead of providing direct service to charitable causes. The best service programs of chapters – those that have the greatest overall impact – will have brothers involved in both types of projects over the course of the year.

 The Red Cross

In 2004 the Fraternity first began a partnership with The Red Cross. Since that time, several chapters have developed strong relationships with local Red Cross chapters and have successfully executed a variety of projects. Get in touch with your local chapter of the Red Cross to organize a project today.

 United Service Organizations (USO)

For more than 77 years, the USO has connected America’s service members back to the things they have fought to defend: their family, their home and their country. Established during World War II by national leaders who understood that maintaining high morale in a fighting force is essential to a nation’s military success, the USO continues to be a vital contributor to our military’s strength and effectiveness. A nonprofit, congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities.

Phi Gamma Delta has formed a partnership with the USO giving chapters the opportunity to support its efforts through philanthropic (fundraising) events as well as service opportunities at nearby centers. The USO has prepared ready-made tool kits to assist chapters executing events. 

Visit Phi Gamma Delta's Team USO Page for more information, to get assistance in setting up opportunities at your chapter and to register your events.

Contact the Senior Director of Chapter Services, or Erin Mintmier, Regional Development Manager at the USO, with any questions.
