Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign
The Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign is committed to supporting ongoing care for our military veterans and their families. We aggressively pursue opportunities to assist our nation’s veterans with financial and organizational support to help them overcome the battles they fight every day.
The Military Heroes Campaign is rooted in the idea that every veteran deserves a stable life and an active community of supporters. We do this through the generous donations of thousands of donors just like you and work with trustworthy organizations to ensure that donations go directly to those veterans who need it most.
A Mission Of Giving Back
Since 2007, the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign has raised over $1.8 million dollars to aid our veterans across North America. The Military Heroes Campaign is an initiative that consists of organizations focused on providing care for veterans and their families.
The Military Heroes Campaign is primarily funded through donations and philanthropic fundraising from local Kappa Sigma Fraternity undergraduate chapters. We also accept direct donations from the public in support of the campaign and chapter efforts. Through these gifts, our organization continues to provide the support needed to make the lives of veterans and their families better.
Veterans Need Your Support
We take pride in working with our community to provide opportunities for our servicemen and women. Your donations are sent to a select group of organizations who advocate on behalf of wounded veterans. We won’t stop supporting our heroic combat veterans, and we ask that you help us in the mission to provide the care that they deserve.

The Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign is rooted in finding new and effective methods to help our military veterans and their families.
