The Phi Sigma Rho Foundation
The Phi Sigma Rho Foundation raises, manages and awards funds to support the Sorority’s education and leadership programs (LEAP), give undergraduate and graduate scholarships, and assist in sisters’ philanthropic efforts. The Phi Sigma Rho Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code. Though a separate organization, the Phi Sigma Rho Foundation was formed to support the educational and charitable interests of the sisterhood. Phi Sigma Rho Sorority and Phi Sigma Rho Foundation work together to provide all Phi Rho sisters with an experience built on the Phi Sigma Rho values of friendship, scholarship, and encouragement.
Light the Night
for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The Phi Sigma Rho Foundation launched its campaign for the Light the Night Walk in 2015 in an effort to unite the philanthropic efforst of the chapters to a common goal. Light the Night is an annual fundraiser by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the largest voluntary health organization to provide funds for research, finding cures, and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Via this campaign, active and alumnae chapters can easily find and organize walks, or create their own event to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Since 2015, the Phi Sigma Rho sisterhood has raised over $210,000 through the Light the Night campaign.
As part of the Phi Sigma Rho Foundation team, chapters will be provided a login for a specific Light the Night Walk team page where they can submit their donations to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All team pages are linked to the Foundation team page.
