Community Service is an integral aspect of our brotherhood. Through support of cultural and civic organizations, we seek to impact the lives of individuals and families near and far. Each brother participates in at least two Kappa Tau philanthropy events per semester, but many of our brothers go above and beyond. These events provide a place for our chapter to bond with each other as well as give back to the community.
Each year, the chapter’s community service looks a little different. As brothers come and go, our chapter is gifted with new talents. Our Vice President of Community Service is in charge of looking at the strengths of our chapter and seeing the best ways that we can aid our community. Some of the brother’s favorite reoccurring community service events are volunteering with Rebuild Upstate, facilitating events at the Clemson Downs nursing home, and visiting the Ronald McDonald House, our national philanthropy. Each semester provides new and exciting opportunities for our chapter to become more involved with the community around us.
#1 in community service
In 2021, Clemson University's Kappa Tau Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi has won the National Outstanding Service Award given each year to the chapter that plans and implements the most effective and comprehensive program of service to others.
We are honored to receive national recognition for our dedication to service, which underlines everything we do as a chapter. Over the last year, we have completed over 26 service projects together for organizations such as Rebuild Upstate, Ronald McDonald House, Greenville Soup Kitchen, Clemson Downs, Rise Against Hunger, Meals on Wheels, and many others. Even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, brothers did not back down from our founding pillar of community service and continued to find ways to give back to our community safely and effectively.
We look forward to expanding and enhancing our dedication to serve the communities that give so much to us. From Clemson's campus and upstate South Carolina all the way to national causes, we hope to grow our impact each year.
"My name is Dylan DiGangi and I am a sophomore Financial Management major from Bedford, Massachusetts. DSP has been one of my favorite involvements at Clemson so far as it has truly shaped my college experience. This organization has provided me with the best of both worlds where I am able to network and grow professionally, but is also where I've met some of my best friends. I currently serve as the Vice President of Community Service and cannot wait to uphold this important pillar for our fraternity."
