A long-held tradition at Stetson University, Greenfeather originated in 1952 as an autumn carnival where students raised funds for local charities. Over the decades, Greenfeather has expanded to a weeklong event that brings awareness to philanthropy and issues surrounding the DeLand community. In recent years, Greenfeather has merged into our annual Homecoming week to bring the event some needed spirit.
During this week, Stetson students, faculty, and alumni will come together to help raise $10,000 for a local non-profit organization. The Greenfeather Grant Recipient for 2017 will be the Arc of Volusia County. Located in Daytona Beach, The Arc is dedicated to helping adults with intellectual disabilities through programs that foster independence and hope. The Arc will use the grant to build a renovated wellness and recreational center to help their clients maintain healthier lifestyles.
Without your contribution to the Greenfeather Grant, this project will not be possible. If you are able, please consider donating to the grant!
Registration for Greenfeather 2017 is now open. This year, in an effort to expand Greenfeather to all student organizations and individuals, we will be introducing a new category that teams can sign up for: Non-competitive. Non-competitive teams will not have a participant limit and can participate in as many events as they wish. For teams vying for the Greenfeather Cup, we will have a competitive team category. If you are an individual, you can also participate in this year’s Greenfeather! The application will close on October 6th!
