Sigma Kappa's nationwide Week of Giving occurs each year during the week of November 9, our Founders' Day. It is a time to celebrate our history of sisterhood and service to others. As alumnae members of Sigma Kappa we have the opportunity to do great things. Sometimes great things come in small ways and random acts of kindness. The Week of Giving gives us an opportunity to celebrate our history of sisterhood and service to others by showing our compassion and understanding of one another. Below are a few suggestions that you can do by yourself, with your family, or as a group or chapter.
Join us as we show each other and the community
around us how we live with heart.
Expectations for collegiate chapters have not changed with regard to Week of Giving. Click here for more information (page 16). Sigma Kappa is providing an opportunity for alumnae to also engage in living with heart in their communities. This is also a great chance for collegiate chapters to pair with their alumnae chapter!
