A Greater Cause
The Kappa Sigma Fraternity is strongly committed to making a difference in the lives of others. It is this commitment that has provided the inspiration and vision for A GREATER CAUSE.
A Greater Cause program is designed to record the activities and reinforce the concept that Kappa Sigma members should play an active role in their communities.
To dramatically increase volunteerism for charitable causes.
To dramatically increase the number of alumni to serve as volunteers and mentors.
To reinforce to all brothers that Kappa Sigma is for life.
The principal program of the A Greater Cause Foundation is Kappa Sigma’s Military Heroes Campaign. Created in 2007, the Military Heroes Campaign honors and aids thousands of military veterans and their families in communities throughout the U.S. and Canada. Since its inception, the campaign has donated nearly $500,000 to non-profit organizations who advocate on behalf of servicemen and women and those wounded in combat.
Fisher House Foundation
The Military Heroes Campaign focuses, in particular, on providing charitable assistance to the Fisher House Foundation, a segment of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund that provides free housing to wounded veterans and their families throughout the duration of rehabilitation.
The Fisher House Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a network of 38 comfort homes on the grounds of military and VA major medical centers. The houses are 5,000 to 16,000 square foot units, with up to 21 suites, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs. The Foundation provides support to families of patients receiving care at the nearby medical center.
