Philanthropy: Eta Upsilon supports the national philanthropy as well as supporting the Robbie Page Memorial Fund. This fund was created as a tribute to Robbie Page, and was originally created to find a cure for polio. After helping to achieve this goal, the fund is now directed towards helping with the funding of children’s wings in hospitals at UNC-Chapel Hill and the Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. More information about these philanthropies can be found at www.trisigmafoundation.org/Home.
