Philanthropy & Community Involvement

At the heart of every sorority and fraternity is a proudly represented national philanthropy, a group or an organization that is represented by a sorority or a fraternity, for which their goal is to raise money for that organization; each philanthropy is represented by the same sorority or fraternity nationwide. 

Often, members of the community fail to distinguish what differentiates community service and philanthropy. Community Service is active participation in an event geared towards helping a community. Some simple examples would be picking up trash in a park, building a shed, or serving food at a homless shelter. Philanthropy typically involves giving a gift or donation towards a cause that assists the chosen organization.

At the University of Hartford, each fraternity and sorority is required to complete a minimum of 15 philanthropy hours. These hours are usually completed by supporting the sororities and fraternities philanthropy events and encouraging our students to assist local, national and global efforts and initatives.

The Greek Life community at the University of Hartford is devoted to:

  • providing the fraternal experience
  • challenging students personally and professionally
  • promoting academic success
  • maintaining the highest standards of ethical conduct
  • and fostering diverse, philanthropic pursuits.
