Fraternities, like any organization, need money to finance their various expenses and projects. Everything from Big/Little events to paying for house renovations, dues for donating funds to a charity or serving the community … Greek organizations require money to operate.
Giving back is a significant part of being a member of Greek life. One of the core values in the Greek system is the emphasis on charitable giving and giving back to the community. In the 2013-2014 school year alone, fraternities across the country raised over $20 million for philanthropic causes according to the North-American Interfraternity Conference.
Safe and trusted sites like MoveYourMountain.org are leading the revolution and empowering fraternities all over the country to engage the power of the crowd. Online fundraising campaigns give members of the Greek life an opportunity to participate in positive philanthropic experiences while also laying a foundation for a long term commitment to community service and charitable giving.
With the rise of social media so popular among members of the Greek life, online fundraising is a great platform for these young men to use to spread awareness about the project or organization that they are raising money for. In between checking Instagram, tweeting about the latest gossip or updating their Facebook profile, they can quickly update their Move Your Mountain campaign and share it with the entire student population as well as the community.
Raising money through a free and easy to use platform like Move Your Mountain allows young people an environment where they can promote their organization while contributing to a cause they care deeply about. There is no better feeling than helping those in need and while being part of the fraternity community, you have that opportunity every day.
