Awesome Fundraising Opportunity

Yankee Candles: Perfect for the Holidays

Every home needs a candle for the holidays. But before you make your seasonal candle purchases at a store, buy them from us instead! By buying Yankee Candles through one of our Seller pages, Phi Sigma Pi earns 40% of the profit! These extra funds would be incredibly helpful to provide brothers with scholarships as well as increase the ability for us to hold a variety of different events.

Philanthropy Events

Fall Fest

Our first Fall Philanthropy event was a huge success! PSP and Dance Marathon had a blast interacting with the UVa and surrounding community at Fall Fest! Families were able to take fall pictures, paint pumpkins, and dunk some of our brave brothers in the dunk tank! Overall we raised over $800 to donate directly to the UVA Children's Hospital, and we have even higher hopes for next fall!

4 Miler 4 the Kids

Hello Alumni!

The time has come that we begin to spread the word about the 5K! Firstly, the 5K is now a 4 Miler 4 the Kids and will continue to benefit the Children's Miracle Network. We are reaching out to you all to ask for your help! If you could assist in the fundraising efforts monetarily we would appreciate your support.
