Philanthropy Week

During this year’s Fall 2019 Philanthropy Week, $88,000 was raised this past year to support the local and global community through the mission of Turning Rhody Blue into Rhody Green. This year’s program focused on how to impact locally & globally while promoting sustainability and environmental awareness. Proceeds will help to beautify and maintain the global ocean spaces through research with the URI Plastics & Microplastics Research Initiative to continually greening the space of Fraternity Circle through the Tsagarakis Collegiate Capitol Fund. A huge thank you goes out to our student coordinators, Panhellenic VP Philanthropy Samantha Reynolds (Sigma Delta Tau 2020) & IFC Dir. Service & Involvement Aaron Shaheen (Kappa Sigma 2020) for helping to coordinate the selection of the benefactors & coordinate the fundraising efforts of the community 

Since 2014, Greek Life’s Philanthropy Week at URI has raised nearly $800,000 for charities locally in Rhode Island, throughout the US, and across the globe.

Congrats to the 2019 Philanthropy Week Winners, Delta Phi Epsilon & Sigma Alpha Epsilon
