Local Philanthropies

Lambda Psi Rho’s philanthropy of choice is the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation. The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation is the only organization that supports children fighting against cancer in the Northern and East Sierra regions of Nevada. Lambda Psi Rho has supported NNCCF every year with two major philanthropic events including Hoops For Hope and Saint Baldricks Day.

The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation strives to enhance the quality of lives of children battling cancer and their families by providing emotional and finacial support. The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation’s symbol is the flags which symbolize joy, hope, innocence and imagination. The brothers of Lambda Psi Rho have supported the families of the Northern Nevada since the beginning.

Saint Baldrick’s Day is a day in which members of the community comes together and shave their heads to raise money and show support for the numerous children suffering from cancer. Saint Baldricks Foundation and the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation have very similar goals. The brothers of Lambda Psi Rho, along with many organizations on campus, participates in Saint Baldricks every year to support these organizations.

Hoops for Hope is our largest philanthropy of the year. We work directly with the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation to host a week full of events that are solely focused on raising awareness and money for the foundation. By the end of the week, we host a basketball tournament for the community to participate in.
