• PHILANTHROPY & COMMUNITY SERVICE

  • Fraternities play an important role in the Richmond Metropolitan

    area by donating their time to serve in the communities. Every year

    IFC fraternities volunteer for two of Richmond’s biggest events,

    the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10K and the SunTrust Marathon, where runners

    come from all over the east coast to participate in the races. Like scholarship,

    service is also one of the main values all fraternities in the IFC were established

    upon. At VCU, Fraternity & Sorority Life recognized its significance, and a service

    day has been included as part of the events during Greek Week last spring.

    In addition to volunteering for many local organizations, every fraternity in the

    IFC is committed to supporting at least one charitable organization. Furthermore,

    the Interfraternity Council, itself, has officially adopted the Central VA Food Bank

    as its charitable organization last spring.
