Donations are applied to...
All gifts allocated to the Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund directly
support students, faculty, and staff members affected by the novel
coronavirus (COVID-19). With your help, our Wake Forest family
members are receiving assistance with housing, meals, family care,
and basic necessities stemming from sheltering in place and the
temporary closing of campus.
The Impact of our Greek Organizations
At Wake Forest, we have a thriving community of fraternities and sororities who exemplify our values of Pro Humanitate and give back an enormous amount of time and effort to our community through our philanthropy. COVID-19 is disrupting all facets of life, including the ability for our organizations to organize and be a force for good at Wake Forest. However, through our partnership with the Wake Forest Crisis Response Fund, the fraternity and sorority community has a new way for our chapters and their members to reaffirm our commitment to the school and our fellow students. By using this page, you have the option to select your particular fraternity or sorority and provide your donation on behalf of both yourself and the organization.
For our member fraternities, IFC pledges to match up to $250 in donations made by each chapter for a total possible matching amount of $2,500 towards the Relief Fund. For our Panhellenic and NPHC community, IFC pledges to additionally match up to $100 in donations for a total possible matching amount of $1,300.
The Greek community has the ability to build our school up and to provide for those who are most vulnerable. Help us give back to the community and help those who need it most.
