Theta Upsilon takes great pride in our National Philanthropies and has many initiatives to support these philanthropies! We strive to make a positive impact in our community. With Sigma Kappa’s five philanthropies including the Sigma Kappa Foundation, Inherit the Earth, Gerontology, Maine Sea Coast Mission and Alzheimer’s Disease we are always very busy with our service and philanthropic efforts.
We host a variety of fun Philanthropy events each year supporting these philanthropies. In the past we have done: Sigma Kappa’s Kick in the Grass Soccer Tournament, Sigma Sliders, Sigma Sketti, Sigma Kappa’s Quarter Auction, an Earth Day Cupcake sale, Spike Down Alzheimer’s Volleyball Tournament and many more! We also participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Findlay, Ohio every year where we raise money and walk to help find a cure for this disease.
In 2017, Theta Upsilon was the top fundraiser for the Hancock County walk! At Theta Upsilon, we also participate in many service events. To support Inherit the Earth, we do Community Clean Ups where we pick up trash around campus and the city of Bowling Green. We also participate in BGSU’s Friday Night Lights. To support Gerontology and Alzheimer’s, we frequently do nursing home visits at a local nursing home where we spend time with the clients, do their nails, color, along with hosting special events like crafting and Christmas caroling. Service is essential to us as we also participate in many campus service events that are going on throughout the year.
