About Our Philanthropy
Sigma Phi Epsilon strives to have a positive impact through philanthropic and community service activities. In previous years, the Beta Chapter has participated in many different philanthropic events within the Bloomington community.
Last Year's Philanthropy
In the past, Sigma Phi Epsilon has been active in several different philanthropic opportunities. Since Spring 2011, the brothers have been participating in the SigEp Role Model Program. This program allows members of the fraternity to have the chance to act as role models and mentors for students at Templeton Elementary School. Each semester, the brothers of SigEp take two days to participate in and aid organizations such as Habitat for Humanity or the Bloomington Department of Parks and Recreation.
Habitat For Humanity International (HFHI) is an international, non-governmental, non-profit organization devoted to building "simple, decent, and affordable" housing, a self-described "Christian housing ministry." The mission statement of Habitat for Humanity is "Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope." Homes are built using volunteer labor and are sold at no profit.

Habitat's affordable, no-profit house payments free up money for food, child care, medicine and other necessities. Research has shown that decent housing improves health, increases children's educational achievement and strengthens community ties. Thanks to your support, Habitat is transforming the lives of more than 3 million people around the world.
