Kappa Sigma Fraternity today announced that its 2013-2014 Military Heroes Campaign enabled the international Fraternity to donate a total of $220,000 among five organizations focused on advocating and providing services to military veterans and their families. The Military Heroes Campaign is a key component of the organization’s international “A Greater Cause” community service program.
“Kappa Sigma undergraduate and alumni members have made it their mission to fundraise and advocate for military servicemen and women, as well as their families,” said Hugh Robert, president of Kappa Sigma’s international alumni board of directors. “This is the largest Military Heroes contribution that we have made to date and demonstrates our continued commitment to this important cause.
The five organizations benefitting from the contributions are the American Corporate Partners, Fisher House Foundation, SEAL Legacy Foundation (and The Honored SEAL Legacy Scholarship Program), Veterans Moving Forward and Wounded Warriors Project.
“We appreciate Kappa Sigma’s support of military service members, veterans and their families,” said Veterans Moving Forward founder and President Karen Jeffries, an organization dedicated to training and providing service dogs at no cost to disabled veterans. “Kappa Sigma now makes it possible for yet another veteran to receive one of these highly trained animals. This is life changing for the veteran and his or her family.”
Each year the Fraternity’s undergraduate chapters and alumni host fundraising and awareness events in the name of the Military Heroes Campaign. These events collectively raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for military veterans and their families.
“This generous donation is a true indication that Kappa Sigma is living up to one of the four pillars of Fraternity: service,” said Teresa Nichols, manager of major gifts for Wounded Warrior Project. “At WWP, we strive every day to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, but we could not do that without the generous support of the American people and organizations like Kappa Sigma. We thank you and want you to know that you are truly serving those that have so bravely served this country.”
“One of the founding principals of Kappa Sigma is a call to service, and our members answer that call each and every day,” said Mitchell Wilson, Kappa Sigma’s Executive Director. “Being able to contribute $220,000 says a lot about the efforts of our members and their dedication to the military men and women who serve their country.”
Created in 2007, the Military Heroes Campaign raises awareness and funds for military veterans and their families, and has donated more than $500,000 since its inception to non-profit organizations that advocate on behalf of servicemen and women in the U.S. and Canada.
