Involvement: The sisters of Sigma Kappa are extremely dedicate to their five philanthropies. They host a philanthropy aevent called Greek Love Duets, where a girl and guy from each sorority and fraternity pair up to sing a duet together. They also celebrate UltraViolet week in the fall by hosting their Ultra Violet Gala, attending the Walk to End Alzheimers, and host a flag football tournament called the Dove Bowl. The Sigma Kappa women visit their B+ Hero, Victoria in the hospital during her treatments, and spend extra time with her to maintain their special bond. Sigma Kappa was honored by the B+ Foundation with the "Heart of a Champion" award for their dedication and commitment to Victoria. The Sigma Kappa sisters are constantly active in their philanthropies throughout the year by volunteering at Rockland Nursing Home and hosting their Sigma Kappa Week of Giving, where they give back to students and the community all week.

Sisterhood: The connection of upholding the Sigma Kappa values creates an everlasting sisterhood. Sisterhood plays a unique role in the life of each member and in each collegiate and alumnae chapter. The SK sisterhood continues to bring members together through many years to share experiences, serve others and have fun. As an organization Sigma Kappa encourages its members to be involved in their campus and community. Because of this focus on involvement outside of Sigma Kappa, the sisters are able to engage with the campus and community in ways that are important to them by hosting and participating in a number of different events. These include the sisterhood retreat, big and little reveal week, initiation and so many more events that strengthen the bonds of the Sigma Kappa sisters

Words from the Chapter President: “Sigma Kappa has brought so much joy to my college experience. The women in this chapter are some of the most kind, intelligent, and charismatic people I’ve ever met and every day serving as their President is an honor. I find so much comfort and strength in my sisters, knowing that they will always have my back and will support me through anything. It is my only hope that as President I am able to give back, and show each and every one of our members how truly valuable they really are. We Sigma Kappa sisters live with heart; we love and appreciate each other fully and authentically in the most beautiful way. I would not be who I am today without Sigma Kappa and for that I am forever indebted to this sorority and the women who make it so special.”
-Caileigh O'Donnell, Chapter President

Sigma Kappa has five philanthropies that spell out SIGMA. All of the sisters of Theta Delta chapter value all of these philanthropies. The S stands for the Sigma Kappa Foundation, which provides funds and scholarships for sisters in need. The I stands for Inherit the Earth, where we participate in various service projects to make the Earth a safer, and cleaner place. The G stands for Gerontology, where we support the elderly in nursing homes, and spend quality time with them. The M stands for Maine Seacoast Mission, where Sigma Kappa raises money to keep the coast of Maine clean and safe, being that is where Sigma Kappa was founded. Lastly, and most importantly, the A stands for the Alzheimer's Association. The Alzheimer association is an amazing organization and every sister is extremely dedicated to this organization. All the sisters participate in the Alzheimer’s Walk in Wilmington and we are known as the Diamond Level Team, which is the highest team you can be. The Sigma Kappa Theta Delta Chapter hosts between 15-20 philanthropy events per semester. 

Going through recruitment, community service and volunteering was a huge part of what makes me the person I am. From a young age, my mom had me helping my community in some way. I loved Sigma Kappa as a chapter because I felt so welcomed and I can be myself, but also because I could connect to the philanthropies because one year ago, my grandmother was diagnosed with late onset Alzheimers. I wanted to be able to make a difference and be able to fight for my grandmother when she does not have the strength to. Being only a sophomore, I did not expect to be able to hold such a rewarding position as philanthropy. This position has allowed me to learn and become a leader and to be able to lead this amazing chapter for all of our philanthrop
y events. This position has helped me be able to become outgoing and show the passion I have for philanthropy.

-Rachel Falcone, Vice President of Philanthropic Services
