Chapter Philanthropy & Service
Through community service and awareness efforts, there’s no doubt that Alpha Gams are impacting the world. Guided by the Purpose, our members feel a deep connection to civic involvement and are compelled to play an active role in our diverse society. Alpha Gamma Delta’s chosen philanthropic focus is diabetes awareness and education, and members are encouraged to engage in community service that promotes this worthy cause. Diabetes continues to affect our members and their friends, families, and acquaintances at an astounding rate, and as a sisterhood, we have the unique opportunity to look to each other for support and education.
The Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation provides grants that support members and other individuals living with diabetes. Financial support is also offered to members in emergency situations. Volunteer and leadership training opportunities are provided through Foundation funding as well. Overall, the Foundation impacts and enriches our communities by providing essential support for education, philanthropy and leadership.
On the local level, our collegiate chapters and alumnae groups diligently carry out their own community-based philanthropy events and activities. Some groups focus on diabetes research and prevention, while others focus on a different need in their local community. Together, just as in years past, we continue to inspire the woman and impact the world in the communities in which we live.
Each year, our chapter presents the “Alpha Gamma Delta Annual Picnic Basket Auction.” Collegiate members prepare individualized themed baskets that are sold to the most generous high bidder.
