Chapter Philanthropy

To Lend to Those Less Fortunate a Helping Hand...

Phi Mu also provides a venue through which members can contribute and give back to the community in more than just one way. We do more than simply promote the idea of volunteerism, we enable it. Over the past 20 years, Phi Mu has raised over 7 million dollars for 170 Children's Miracle Network nation-wide. Not only that, Phi Mu was the first sorority to establish an annual national philanthropy day. Every year in October, Phi Mu's from all over the country participate in community service events in their area. Here are some examples of ways the Rho Theta Chapter raises money for Children's Miracle Networks Hospitals and serves the Elmhurst Community.

Miracle Jeans Day

Rho Theta kicks off the school year by participating in Miracle Jeans Day in September. On this day we all wear jeans in effort to raise awareness and money for kids treated at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! We also collect donations in the Elmhurst University Cafeteria in 2019, we raised 115.61 in spare change!

Phi Mu Bingo

Each fall, Rho Theta hosts Bingo! Phi Mu Bingo is our most successful and popular fundraiser in which we invite members from the local community, family members, and students and faculty of Elmhurst University. We host numerous rounds of bingo in which the players are able to win various Vera Bradley items as well as other items! In Fall of 2019, we raised $2,037 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals!

Kickin' It For The Kids

Each fall Rho Theta invites other organizations on campus to participate in this event, which has been either a kickball tournament or a soccer tournament. In 2019, we raised $247 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals!

Dodgeball

Rho Theta partners with Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity to host a dodgeball tournament every year. The proceeds from this event help support both organizations philanthropies! Last year we raised $250 for our philanthropy! 

Valentine's Day Chocolate Sales

Rho Theta hosts this event every year in the spring semester around Valentine's Day! We sell a variety of chocolate bars for $1 each and this past spring we even included small Valentine's Day favors included with each purchase. We raised a total of $211.18 this past Spring 2020.
