While philanthropic donations are an important part of our A Greater Cause program, it is important to remember that volunteering our time is just as important as giving our treasure. Our undergraduate chapters do an extraordinary job donating their time to worthwhile causes, giving more than 4.7 million hours of community service over the last decade.
Kappa Sigma alumni also donate their time to the equally important cause of supporting our undergraduate chapters in the roles of Alumni Volunteers. Kappa Sigma is an alumni-driven organization, and volunteer alumni are directly involved in coaching and mentoring our undergraduates at the local level like never before.
Kappa Sigma’s volunteer structure starts with our Supreme Executive Committee (SEC). The SEC are all volunteers themselves, providing fraternity leadership in addition to their professional careers. The SEC appoints volunteer officers to directly help and mentor each undergraduate chapter and colony. Kappa Sigma appoints Alumnus Advisors (AAs) and Assistant Alumnus Advisors (AAAs) to advise our chapters on day-today operations. The Fraternity also appoints District Grand Masters (DGMs) and Assistant District Grand Masters (ADGMs) to locally promote Kappa Sigma’s international programs. Many local volunteers also serve on volunteer Commissions, which help run operational areas of the fraternity with the assistance of Headquarters staff.
At the 72nd Biennial Grand Conclave in Charlottesville, Kappa Sigma set the goal of having the largest and best trained volunteer corps to help support our chapters. In December, Kappa Sigma launched its new iPledge program to help further these fraternal goals. Kappa Sigma needs our alumni to give back to Kappa Sigma so our undergraduates can continue to give back to their communities in a big way. If you have not done so, please take the iPledge commitment today at www.KappaSigma.org/iPledge.
