IFC-Corps Softball Game
Every Fall the Interfraternity Council puts on the IFC-Corps Softball Game, pitting the two largest mens-organizations on campus in an exciting matchup. Teams are composed of members from their respective chapters/outfits, currently the Corps of Cadets leads the series 2-0 since the event’s revival in 2017. All proceeds from this event go to the student organization BUILD, whom converts shipping containers into mobile medical clinics to be shipped around the world. In 2018 the event was highlighted as part of Greek Week, hosting members of the Greek Community across the councils.
IFC Golf Tournament
Every Spring, the Interfraternity Council puts on the IFC Golf Tournament to raise money for various non-profit organizations. Each chapter sends a team to participate, building unity among our chapters through friendly competition. In 2014, IFC hosted the tournament at Briarcrest Country Club and donated all of the proceeds from the event to the families of the victims of the Fort Hood shootings. Overall, the men of IFC raised $2,500 which was given to promote the efforts of Operation Homefront and its Emergency Tragedy Fund.
IFC LEAD Philanthropy
Every Spring the IFC LEAD class, a select group of up and coming fraternity leaders, are tasked with creating and marketing of a philanthropy event. In 2017 the class put on Cook Out for Cops, benefitting the Bryan/College Station Police Departments. All proceeds were donated to the Vest Project, helping the Brazos County Sheriff Department purchase new and improved bullet-proof vests. In 2018 the class put on a tailgate for an Aggie baseball game selling food and bubbles, with all proceeds benefiting Rebuilding Together Bryan/College Station.
Every Fall the Interfraternity Council hosts a platform for benefitting the Movember Foundation, raising awareness of men's health issues. A mustache growing competition is held for all of the Texas A&M fraternities, where each chapter nominates one member to grow a mustache over the course of the month. Beginning with a shave down early in November, participants and chapters spread awareness for Movember and sell shirts. Near the end of the month the participant with the best mustache is selected for a prize. In 2015, IFC generated $9,382 in charitable contributions throughout the month.
