About Our Philanthropy
Big Man on Campus is an all male talent show held in the fall which features acts from over 20 different male organizations on campus. Each year, the BMOC boys are cheered on by over 3,000 spectators at the IU Auditorium as they battle to win the title of "Big Man on Campus" based on their talents and fundraising efforts.
Last Year's Philanthropy
Last year Zeta Tau Alpha raised over $147,049.81 – making it the largest Greek-lead philanthropic organization in the nation. As college-aged women, they hope to see breast cancer eliminated in their lifetime. Two years ago, they established the Zeta Tau Alpha Visiting Lectureship in Breast Surgical Oncology at the IU School of Medicine. In addition to their fundraising efforts, they were the first group of young women to donate healthy breast tissue to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.
Contributions and Donations
In 2012, 86% of NBCF's spending went to their programs, including providing mammograms, breast health services, education, and support for those in need. They accomplish this through partnerships with hospitals and breast health facilities across the country, community outreaches, and digital educational and support resources.
