GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY
Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Inc. is a service-based organization that strives not only to raise awareness on issues in our community but also to support via monetary contributions. Servicing the community is our way of giving to a community that's given to us and our members enjoy being active role models in their community. We contribute to our National Philanthropy, our National Community Service Projects, and individual projects.
In congruence with our motto "Wisdom through Education", our organization supports/assist those children involved in the "I Have A Dream" (IHAD) Foundation through monetary donations. This foundation aims to assist those children from low-income communities to receive a higher education. For more information on the IHAD foundation please visit: www.ihaveadreamfoundation.org

Chapter Service Projects
Every year, our chapter participates in two community service/philanthropy events: Relay for Life and the DC AIDS Walk. We participate in Relay for Life annually because cancer has personally affected family members in our chapter. We participate in the DC AIDS Walk because we are very aware of the high HIV/AIDS rate that DC has and we wish to work to cure and help those who suffer with the disease.
