Introduction to philanthropy
What is philanthropy and why should you care? Philanthropy is the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed in the form of giving and volunteering. There are many reasons why you should get involved in philanthropy. First, it is a great way to give back to your community and make a difference in the world. Second, it can help you develop new skills and build your resume. Third, it is a great way to meet new people and make new friends. Finally, philanthropy can be a lot of fun!
What is philanthropy?
Philanthropy is the giving of time, talent or treasure for the common good. It may take the form of financial support for a cause or charitable organization, but it can also involve volunteerism, advocating for a cause or lending one’s talents to support a community effort. Whatever form it takes, philanthropy ultimately seeks to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
Why is philanthropy important to Phi Sigma Sigma?
Since its founding in 1913, Phi Sigma Sigma has been committed to giving back to the community. We believe that philanthropy is an important part of our sisterhood and helps us fulfill our mission of empowering women to excel in all aspects of their lives.
Our philanthropy work is centered around three core areas: education, leadership development and service. Through our philanthropy events and programs, we aim to make a positive impact in these areas and help create a better world for all.
Education: We believe that education is the foundation of success. That’s why we support organizations like the Reading Is Fundamental program, which provides free books and literacy resources to children in need.
Leadership Development: We know that strong leaders are essential to creating a better world. That’s why we invest in programs that develop leadership skills in women, such as our own Leadership Development Academy.
Service: We believe in the power of service. That’s why we support organizations like the American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, which provide vital services to communities in need.
