As a philanthropic sorority, Phi Sigma Sigma is committed to helping others in the community and around the nation. The Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation encourages leadership achievement, provides scholarships and educational grants, and fosters students’ academic success through their philanthropic mission: school and college readiness.
In previous years, we, the Iota Zeta chapter, have held a campus-wide volleyball tournament - “Phi, Set, Spike” - to raise money for our national philanthropic foundation. This was an engaging, fun-filled way to involve fellow UMD students and the Duluth community. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts and the campus field house being under construction, we are unable to proceed with this fundraiser. This year, in its place, we will be creating a new fundraiser with the slogan “Support the Schools” that we hope is just as successful and engaging.
We strongly believe that our philanthropy event should center around our mission to work with schools - to make an impact on education nationwide. The money we raise will be donated to the “Kids In Need Foundation” whom we are partnered with through the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation. The money will be used to provide necessary school supplies, textbooks, computers and any other aid to strengthen the quality of education in struggling schools all over the United States. With your help, we hope to reach our goal of $3,360 for our foundation mission of “school and college readiness”.
Thank you to everyone who is helping us reach our goal!
