Fraternity and Sorority members give back to the campus and Pensacola community in a variety of ways each year. Every fraternity and sorority has a national philanthropy. A cause that they are involved in by raising awareness, fundraising, and by participating in hands on service.
The members of our fraternal community here at the University of West Florida participate in service and philanthropy events that help our community, area, and nation. Fraternities and sororities participate in service and philanthropic events together, such as the the planning and participation in Dance Marathon as part of Greek Week, raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters through a Blue Wahoos Baseball Game fundraiser, and through planning and participation in large campus events like Relay for Life and Take Back the Night. Individual organizations also host philanthropy events each year and participate in various hands-on service projects in the community. Together, the fraternity and sorority community raises over $10,000 a year for charities and logs approximately 7,000 hours of community service.
