Alpha Xi Delta’s Philanthropic Focus:
The Kindly Hearts Initiative
The Kindly Hearts Initiative serves as the umbrella to our national philanthropic focus of supporting children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Deltas across the country support two Key Impact Organizations, FosterClub and StandUp for Kids, making a national and regional difference under the umbrella of our focus.
Letters of Love
All Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations participate in Letters of Love, Alpha Xi Delta’s national letter writing fundraising campaign. Held annually during the month of November this campaign benefits Alpha Xi Delta’s two Key Impact Organizations, StandUp for Kids and FosterClub.
Our Chapter's Impact:
Here at Alpha Xi Delta, one of our values is Service. Alpha Xi Delta is a proud National Sponsor of the Autism Speaks Walk!
Every April, the Delta Rho chapter participates in the Los Angeles Autism Speaks Walk held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Throughout the year, our Philanthropy Vice President and her team organize events and fundraisers where every sister has the opportunity to raise money. Our main event every fall semester is Football Frenxi, a flag football tournament where participating fraternities compete against each other. Our spring semester event, Xi Champs, is a three-day event consisting of a relay race, fundraiser at a local eatery, Light It Up Blue video contest, and our closing ceremony is a dance competition! This past year we had fundraisers at Presto Pasta, Ubatuba Acai, and Bon Bon Tea House. The Philanthropy team also organized a Pie-in-the-Face event and Instagram bingo fundraiser. Due to COVID-19, we fell short of our chapter goal but we still raised an amazing $16,000 for Autism Speaks. You can help support our philanthropy by donating to any of our sisters on our chapter Walk Page. Any donation - big or small - is appreciated!
The sisters of the Delta Rho chapter not only strive to raise money and awareness for Autism Speaks, but we participate in other fraternity and sorority philanthropies as well. This past fall, our sisters won six fraternity philanthropies by raising the most money in shirt sales, participating in different events, and helping spread awareness for their causes.
Additional Philanthropic Events
Additional events we coordinate throughout the semester may involve group and individual service project opportunities, donation drives, profit share nights at local restaurants, food fundraising events and more! Follow us on social media to see event announcements and information.
