In Alpha Gamma Delta we have two main functions of philanthropy: service and fundraising. Service is the hands-on component of giving back to our communities. Fundraising entails any monetary donation to an organization.
Alpha Gamma Delta’s philanthropic focus is fighting hunger. One in eight Americans and one in eight Canadians struggle with hunger. It's a cause that knows no bounds. It affects every race, age and community. Including the communities where we are placed. That is why we want to be a part of the solution. Through partnering with national and local organizations, we are able to make an impact on our communities.
We are proud partners of Feeding America and Meals on Wheels. Through these partnerships we're able to provide awareness on a national level while also partnering with local agencies where our collegiate chapters and alumnae chapters/clubs are located.
Our impact is enhanced through fundraising for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation. They provide fighting hunger grants to various organizations that are doing their part in their local community to fight hunger. Learn more about the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation and all that they do to support scholarship, leadership and service.
Alpha Gams love giving back in the community where they are placed! Big or small, we know we can make a difference in our world.
Serving our communities and contributing to the world’s work are values that each Alpha Gamma Delta sister strives to uphold. Through membership in Alpha Gamma Delta, our sisters have a multitude of opportunities to volunteer on campus and in the local community.
Alpha Gamma Delta has switched its philanthropic focus from Diabetes awareness to helping fight hunger! This is an exciting transition that will take place over the summer of 2017. This new cause will allow Alpha Gams to make an impact and get more involved within their local community. Our chapter will continue to hold many philanthropic events to raise money as well as participate in local volunteer opportunities, all benefiting our new cause.
We focus our philanthropic events on raising money to benefit this important cause, as well as the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation.
The Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation provides grants that support members and other individuals suffering from hunger. Through the Foundation, Alpha Gams are awarded scholarships, emergency financial support, and leadership training. Overall, the Foundation impacts and enriches our communities by providing essential support for education, philanthropy and leadership.
