With the creation of Chi Sigma Alpha, our nine founders chose to focus on children as our philanthropy.
Children are the future, so our founders wanted to help give them opportunities that would unlock doors. This is why our chosen philanthropies are the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the local Experimental Education Unit. Like our philanthropies, we hope to help grant wishes big and small and allow equal education to all children.
MUSIC 4 LIFE
Music 4 Life is an annual benefit show that Chi Sigma Alpha hosts to celebrate music, talent, and life. More importantly, we host it in order to raise money for our national philanthropy, Make-A-Wish Foundation® and our local philanthropy, the Chinese Information and Service Center.
Music 4 Life features acts by some of the best local dancers, singers, musicians, and more from all over Seattle. Each year, Music 4 Life grows to become bigger and better than ever. Recently, we’ve gotten YouTube artists such as Lil Crazed, Michelle Martinez, Erika David, Massive Monkees, David Choi, Joesph Vinent, and JamieBoy.
Last year's Music 4 Life was incredibly successful! Our lovely 2018-2019 Philanthropy chairs, Tammy Pham and Amanda Le, were able to find a lot of grants to make the event possible. Joesph Vincent was the headliner and tickets sold out! We also had special performances from Jeehoon & Lucas, Mimi, Jin, & Kim, the UW Hip Hop Association, the Outsiders, Adrian Milanio, and the UW Chi Sig Dance Team. However, due to reasons beyond our control regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be unable to host a Music 4 Life this 2019-2020 school year. Thank you to all who came out last year and we hope to see you again soon!
Chi Sigma Alpha National Sorority, Inc. has partnered up with The Make-A-Wish Foundation® in helping fulfill lifetime dreams of children with life-threatening conditions. Our sorority works directly with The Make-A-Wish Foundation® (Northwest Region) and aids in fundraising to help local and national children’s dreams come true.
The sisters also help prepare special care packages for the children who travel the distance for their life-long wishes to come true. In the end, the most fulfilling dream for everyone is to be able to place a smile on these children’s faces and bring some happiness and joy into their lives.
Currently, Chi Sigma Alpha National Sorority, Inc. is associated in volunteering with the CISC - the Chinese Information and Service Center. CISC's mission is "Building cultures, communities and generations". Their four offices located throughout the Greater Seattle Area serve families and individuals in King County.
Through a variety of services ranging from healthcare access to early childhood support, CISC works to stabilize and strengthen the lives of immigrants.
By volunteering for this culturally inclusive organization, Chi Sigma Alpha continues to support local community integration, while fulfilling CISC's mission.
