MSU Kappa Sigma Fraternity Raises $328K in Charity Bowl Football Game, Sets SEC Record

Members from Mississippi State University’s Kappa Sigma Fraternity, representatives of the Jackson-based organization Reclaimed Project, and Charity Bowl coordinators rejoice in collecting $328,000 for the charity—an unprecedented achievement in the Southeastern Conference for a singular fraternity or sorority philanthropic endeavor—recently at Davis Wade Stadium.

The 25th annual Charity Bowl football match, which took place at Davis Wade Stadium last week, will provide financial aid to the Reclaimed Project and its partner communities in Lesotho, Africa, as well as the Marks community in the Mississippi Delta. The organization collaborates with communities to invest in young individuals, empowering them with the necessary resources to emerge as leaders, while creating sustainable solutions that focus on their spiritual, emotional, and physical growth. In Lesotho, the Reclaimed Project has established orphan care centers, employment development initiatives, churches, schools, and residences.

During spring break this month, over 40 undergraduate members of MSU’s Kappa Sigma will journey to Lesotho to engage in diverse construction endeavors in the area.

In conjunction with Charity Bowl, Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity conducted a flag football competition, generating upwards of $6,000 for the Ability Experience, an altruistic program that supports individuals with disabilities.
