Sigma Kappa has 5 philanthropies we hold dear to our hearts. These are the Sigma Kappa Foundation, Inherit the Earth, Gerontology, Maine Seacoast Mission, and Alzheimer's Association. As a chapter, we hold philanthropy events that raise money towards our national philanthropy, Alzheimer's and participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer's every year. We also do service within our local community of Harrisonburg by volunteering at Avante Nursing Home and Spotswood Elementary School. This year we have been involved in cleaning up areas around JMU campus such as the arboretum and on Earth Day, we talk to students on campus about how to save the Earth and provide seeds for students to plant.
This past Fall 2018, we raised over $60,000 at the Walk to End Alzheimer's in Harrisonburg, making us the top Sigma Kappa fundraising chapter in the nation! Our specific chapter has been the second highest fundraiser in the nation the past three years.
Another major event we put on in the Spring is our UV bowling. This benefits the Sigma Kappa Foundation. Our chapter truly enjoys this fun and colorful night.
