Philanthropy Season is Coming
One of the critical components of Better Men for a Better World is instilling a sense of civic duty. Service and Philanthropy are critical to this mission. Since 1899, Fraters have worked diligently to provide these two actions on their campuses, in their communities, and beyond. TKE has been recognized as one of the fraternal leaders for many of those years and 2011-12 should be no different.
Our organization has a comprehensive list of both service and philanthropic opportunities available. One of these organizations is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. While there are many worthwhile causes both locally and internationally, this has the seal of TKE and we would like you to help our efforts to ensure their success. To this end, you can find information on how to plan a fundraising event for these at tke.org.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, like TKE, has several chapters across the United States. Each of these individual offices can help you create an event like Four Square, Dodgeball or a similar event. Representatives from those centers can come to you for planning and execution of an event. The St. Jude and Offices of the Grand Chapter staff have worked extensively over the past few years to create a comprehensive event planning guide to ensure immediate success. Find your contact.
Service organizations are also in need of your time and energy throughout the year. TKE has a list of those preferred to help in your search process. In either case, service or philanthropy, the important component is that the chapter is out there helping others. Tracking of your service and/ or philanthropy is available on the Membership Maintenance Module. This is vital to keeping accurate records and helps the fraternity find those chapters who go above and beyond to better the world. Each year in The TEKE Magazine chapters are recognized for their efforts.
