Service


We encourage Service. We have the ability, the opportunity, and the duty
to serve our fellow human beings. Our reward is the satisfaction that comes from serving.

United Service Organizations (USO)

Millions of times each year at thousands of locations around the world, the USO lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families.  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. Some examples include:

Adopt a USO Center

Phi Gam Push

Fiji Bowlapalooza

Fiji Football Run

No Dough Dinners

Phi Gam Challenge

United Through Reading Book Drive

 


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.

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.


Service vs. Philanthropy

Service examples: 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.


Philanthropy examples: Battle of the Bands, Talent Show, Football Run, any “a-thon”.
