Service Through Philanthropy
Chi Psi Beta Fraternity, Inc. was founded to act primarily as a service based Greek organization. Throughout each academic school year, we host various service events to promote causes within both the South Asian and Texas A&M communities. Our two main philanthropies are to raise awareness for mental health and our annual blood drive.
Project 365: Mental Health Awareness
Mental illness is a topic surrounded by controversy and taboo, particularly within the South Asian community. The goal of Chi Psi Beta is to remove the stigma surrounding mental health and provide help to those who need it but are afraid to ask. We host a Silent Walk through campus in order to raise awareness for mental health, as well as as a suicide prevention workshop that trains people to spot the early signs of suicide and prevent them from occurring. All of the proceeds from our Project 365 date auction goes to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Fall Blood Drive
In the fall Chi Psi Beta works with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center to set up crucial blood drives via the use of portable blood drive centers or a temporary setup in the MSC. Throughout the weeks prior brothers table and take appointments from blood donors. The fall blood drive is just one example of how Chi Psi Beta looks to stay involved in and support the community by helping those in need.
