The Michigan State University Greek community has announced the kickoff to its 2018 Greek Week philanthropy efforts that will raise money for 14 different charities over the next nine weeks. The fundraising is part of the annual MSU Greek Week, a philanthropic highlight of the year for MSU Greek Life.

Every winter, sororities and fraternities come together to form a Greek Week team. Each team then competes against one another in activities over several weeks to raise money for different philanthropic partners. Greek Week fundraising runs through April 11.

“Greek Week celebrates the founding values of Greek organizations at MSU, including leadership, service, scholarship and friendship,” said Ellie Small, director of Greek Week. “It’s an incredible opportunity for us as Greeks to come together and make a positive impact on many different organizations and make a difference in our community.”

Greek Week teams will be raising funds for the following charities:

  • C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital
  • Play Place for Autistic Children
  • McLaren Greater Lansing Foundation
  • National Alliance on Mental Illness-Lansing
  • Sparrow Hospital
  • Firecracker Foundation
  • Refugee Development Center
  • The Listening Ear
  • Michigan Disability Rights Coalition
  • Camp Kesem
  • Haven House
  • Potter Park Zoo
  • Seidman Cancer Center
  • Make a Wish Foundation-Michigan
