Philanthropy and Service
Every FarmHouse man has spoken of a “commitment of service to his fellowmen and to the world,” and the Illinois Chapter lives up to that statement through our involvement in philanthropic projects. Each year, members of FarmHouse participate in Greek sponsored philanthropies that include, paintball competitions, dodgeball tournaments, water games, and basketball tournaments just to name a few. These events allow our members to get know other members of the Greek system, to participate in friendly competition, and to help all varieties of charities and organizations.
Our community involvement in volunteerism is just as reputable as our campus involvement. In the past, we have set up a petting zoo for the local retirement home, organized a blood drive with the Red Cross, and volunteered at the Urbana Sweet Corn Festival. This community involvement has continually made FarmHouse a revered community organization and that long-standing reputation is part of the honor our members feel with their association to the Fraternity.
