Share your experience as a Philanthropy Chair

We're conducting an assessment of philanthropy chairs for three principle reasons:

  1. illustrate importance of philanthropy as an exceptional function of Greek life
  2. highlight skills and tasks as transferable into the professional workplace
  3. present best practices to future philanthropy chairs

Serving as a fraternity or sorority chapter's chair of philanthropy takes a great deal of work, as it's one of the primary ways a chapter makes a difference and is recognized on a college campus and in the local community. We believe the skills utilized by successful chairs, as well as the tasks each leader practices will be applied as these individuals exceed in their respective careers. 

If you're a past or current Philanthropy Chairperson, you're encouraged to take two minutes to answer three simple questions.

Millennial Study: Elance-Odesk Millennial Majority Workforce

According to Elance, this study reveals changes in how we work, generational differences, and the critical role millennials play for businesses as we move forward. Among findings, millennials offer unique skills - such as fresh ideas, adaptability and tech-savvy - that businesses need in order to innovate and remain competitive.

Key stats and info include:

  • 82% of hiring managers believe millennials bring unique skills, especially that they are more technically adept than other generations
  • 53% of hiring mangers report finding difficult finding and retaining millennial talent
  • Millennials care more about the people they work with, exciting work, and good mentorship, and less about money than hiring managers realize
