Philanthropy & Service

In the past year, members of LSU fraternities and sororities raised more than $110,000 to build Habitat for Humanity houses for two Baton Rouge families. Nearly half of the Greek community participated in the fundraising portion of the event and more than 1,000 members participated in the actual building of the house during Greek Week, the eight-day blitz build.

LSU Greeks are known for their commitment to philanthropy and community service. Fraternity and sorority members contribute thousands of hours each semester to philanthropies and community service projects. The Baton Rouge community frequently benefits from the generosity of LSU Greeks.

Through annual fundraising and hands-on service, LSU Greeks raise thousands of dollars and record numerous hours of volunteer time. During the 2017-18 school year, Greeks donated more than $900,000 and performed nearly 43,500 hours of community service.
