We Greeks take pride in the plethora of charitable organizations we support. Each year, we raise millions of dollars for causes that make this world a better place. It's who we are. We're philanthropic and we're proud of it. But... what if we could do better?
The Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values
and has created Greeks for Good, a collaborative grassroots fundraising platform that mobilizes members of fraternal organizations to do a good thing for their causes, their organizations, and themselves, all while learning about the benefits of a life filled with philanthropic giving.
Through personal fundraising pages, participants are able to raise funds for their selected causes in conjunction with activities such as achieving personal athletic goals, participating in individual or chapter philanthropy events, paying tribute to others whom they admire, giving up things in their personal lives and AFLV Service Immersion experiences. As participants reach milestones along their personal journey, they receive a self-guided philanthropy curriculum; a curriculum we hope will create many lifelong philanthropists within the fraternal community.
Through the Greeks for Good program each participant has the ability to:
- Select a cause for which to raise funds
- Set up a customized personal fundraising page
- Upload personal contacts to whom donation emails can be sent
- Send Greeks for Good branded emails to contacts asking for donations
- Accept donations through the personal fundraising page
- Track and analyze fundraising progress
- Thank donors
- Share progress through social media outlets
