Community Service & Philanthropy
Million Penny Project
At the beginning of each calendar year, the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council select a community partner for the Million Penny Project. Through a variety of programs and events, the fraternity and sorority community tries to raise and exceed one million pennies ($10,000). This has been a community tradition over the past decade and has helped many in and around the local community. To date, the fraternities and sororities have raised over $100,000 through the Million Penny Project Effort.
