Our Purpose

The Council for Greek Governance's (CGG) mission is to serve as the umbrella organization to the Iona Fraternity and Sorority community.

Our Philanthropy

Autism Speaks
What is Autism Speaks: St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
Our Goal: Our goal at Iona College is to raise as much awareness and money for the hospital as possible. We do this through hosting letter sending parties asking our friends and family members for donations, hosting bake sales, having faculty and staff silent auctions, and many other fun and creative ways to raise money. We do it for the kids!
Totals: Since our program began in 2006, we have raised over $53,000 for St. Jude! We hope to continue to raise money to help cure children's cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
