Our Sigma Kappa founders left us with a lasting impression of the importance of philanthropy. Service is one of Sigma Kappa's founding values, and as such, members of Sigma Kappa support multiple philanthropic causes with several different events.
National Fraternity League
In the fall, Sigma Kappa gathers members of other University of Washington fraternities to compete against each other in a football bracket. Sigma Kappa organizes the entire week-long event and serves as coaches to the participating males. This year, the gentlemen of Pi Kappa Alpha were our champions, and we raised over $1,100 for the Sigma Kappa Foundation!
The Walk to End Alzheimer's
Additionally, every fall our members participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's. Every Sigma Kappa across the nation hosts their community's 5k walk. This is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research. To donate to our efforts, click here.
Our biggest annual fundraiser for Alzheimer's research is the Ultraviolet Gala. With live music, a silent auction, and a presentation by the Alzheimers Association, the Gala was a blast! We raised over $10,000 dollars this spring, to be donated to the Sigma Kappa Foundation.
