Service and Philanthropy

Greek women’s interests and concerns go beyond the confines of campus life. Sororities sponsor a multitude of activities each year to impact the local community and earn money for their special philanthropies or identified causes. Each chapter also donates its time to a particular project either locally or nationally.

Each year, the Panhellenic Association fills campus and community needs in its sponsorship and support of such events as clothing drives, toy drives, and canned-food drives. The Greek community contributes thousands of community service hours and dollars to local and national charities.

Many individual Greek women also volunteer in such local programs as Habitat for Humanity and Adopt-a-School children’s tutoring. The opportunities you will encounter to help benefit philanthropies and the community are endless. The ability to give yourself is one of the most important qualities you will develop or cultivate while being part of a sorority.

Dance Marathon

Dance Marathon is an all day event hosted each year by the Panhellenic Association. Patients in the Children's Hospital along with their families are welcomed to enjoy various activities in the rec center, and spend quality time with members of the community.

Congratulations to the CU Greeks for raising over $40,000 for the Children's Miracle Network at Dance Marathon 2009! Last year marked the 7th annual dance marathon. Thanks to our supporters - and a very special thank you to all the families that participated!
