Outstanding Community Service

Iowa State University 

The IFC at Iowa State placed great emphasis on their community service throughout the past year. From hosting roundtables with community service chapter officers to building relationships with community service organizations (like United Way of Story County), to joining forces to host a Greek Trick-Or-Treat for local families and children, the IFC recognizes the importance of service to the community at large and how fraternity can make a difference. The Trick-Or-Treat event specifically highlighted positive aspects of the Greek community and provided a safe and comfortable place for parents to bring their children on Halloween.

Last Fall, the IFC and member chapters had a record-breaking donation of nearly 8,000 lbs of canned food to the Hays County Food Bank along with $2,500 donated to the Turkeys Tackling Hunger Campaign. Additionally, the IFC helps their community find volunteer opportunities at local schools and has participated in several service projects including the university’s Bobcat Build program, a university-sponsored community service event that helps residents of the San Marcos community who are unable to complete projects and upkeep of their homes due to age or ability.

The 90th Round Up event saw attendance of 7,352 ticketed participants and generated $164,565 in revenue. The event encompassed over 13 separate musical venues, and over 20 points of interest that were overseen by the Texas Interfraternity Council. The IFC provided services like roaming EMS and police officers, to ensure that Roundup was safer than ever. The revenue received from Roundup’s success allowed Texas IFC to equally support a multitude of local Austin organizations with over $ 75,000 of donations. For the first time in Roundup history, Texas IFC gave other Greek councils across campus the opportunity to support their own philanthropic organizations, thus extending IFC’s influence over UT’s campus and the Austin community as a whole.
