Alpha Phi Omega

Alpha Phi Omega is a National Co-ed Community Service Fraternity. It was established in 1925 and the Kappa Omicron chapter at UMass Amherst was established in 1952. APO's motto is, "Be a leader, be a friend, be of service". Today Kappa Omicron has about 50 active members. Each member is required to complete 20 hours of community service per semester and attend regular meetings and fellowships to bond with the brotherhood. We are a family; a home away from home. APO will accept any student into the brotherhood that has completed the pledging requirements. We keep our semester dues very low so anyone can join. Because of this, brothers must pay out of pocket for gas money to and from projects, for the banquet at the end of each semester, and for any event that costs money. The chapter needs money to pay for supplies for our office, for service projects like Jared's Box, Relay for Life, and Merit Badge University, for fellowship events and supplies, and for attending sectional, regional, and national conventions, service opportunities, and leadership workshops.

$10

Supplies!

With $10 you can pay for supplies for our outdoor projects. This includes work gloves and goggles that will be used at least twice per semester!

$20

Service!

With $20 the chapter would be able to reimburse members to items to fill about 2 boxes with toys, stickers, crafts, and more for children with terminal illnesses in the hospital!

$30

Fellowships

With this money, the chapter can help fund a fellowship! In the past, we have tie-dyed, knitted, and painted together! All these require supplies!

$50

Gas Money

This money would be enough to pay for gas to get our brothers to and from the Boston Marathon! We have been participating as volunteers at the Boston Marathon for about 10 years and, though we carpool, it is a long drive and we want to repay our drivers!

$100

Banquet

$100 is enough to send at least 3 brothers to banquet for free! Banquet is a time where the entire brotherhood dresses up, goes to a nice hall, and has a nice buffet together while celebrating specific individuals that have done a lot of the community and the chapter. We want all brothers to be able to attend and would hate for someone to not attend due to money constraints.
