The philanthropic efforts of Phi Delta Epsilon IL-Beta Chapter of Champaign, Illinois support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and our regional hospital, HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital in Springfield, Illinois. We are proud to say that all funds raised by our chapter go toward funding equipment and life-saving technology for our regional CMN hospital.


As of 2015, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised over $5 billion nationally for the children in our communities. The Phi Delta Epsilon IL-Beta chapter was able to contribute over $16,000 last year, making us one of the leading premedical chapters in the nation. With your help, we hope to surpass that mark this year.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals were founded upon two goals:


1. Help as many children as possible by raising funds for children’s hospitals.

2. Keep funds in the community where they were raised to help local children.


This semester, we have a series of events planned to raise money for Children's Miracle Network. We will be having restaurant fundraisers, where we partner with a local restaurant and a portion of all proceeds are donated to CMN. We also look forward to our biggest fundraising event of the year - Miracles in May!


We hope you are able to join us in support of our philanthropy. Please contact our VP of Finance or chairs for more information!

Miracles in May (MIM)

From Monday, April 10th to Saturday, April 15th, our chapter engages in our biggest philanthropic event. Each day during the week, we host a variety of different fundraisers. In the past, we have held a car wash, hosted bake sales on the University of Illinois Quad, pie-d professors and members, sold pizza to students, and much more! These events culminate in our biggest celebration of the year - the Miracles in May Banquet. We celebrate the money we have raised throughout the school year and host a Miracles Family from our very own HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital to share their story. During the banquet, we hold a silent auction. In 2016, we raised over $5,000 in just a few hours.


IL-Beta is incredibly passionate about the work that we do for the Children’s Miracle Network. We are excited for this semester!
