Sigma Chi is proud to contribute to the Huntsman Cancer Institute. The non-profit organization was founded in 1955 by a Sigma Chi named John Huntsman Sr. For years, all chapters of the Sigma Chi fraternity have raised money and donated it to the foundation to end the battle against cancer. We are the generation to end cancer. Kappa Phi holds a week of philanthropy called Derby Days. During this week, the chapter throws events and activities in an effort to raise money from students around the campus. Every cent of this money is donated to the Huntsman Foundation. Brothers are also required to complete a minimum of 10 community service hours per semester, either on campus or in their local homes.
"Philanthropy is simply being able to give back to the community that has given us all so much. It's important to help those who need it, because if not us, then who? The Kappa Phi chapter is always looking for ways to not only improve ourselves, but to better the lives of those around us through service, fundraising for good causes, and genuine care." - Former Philanthropy Chairman, James McConlogue
