We are the Do Good Sisterhood Join us as we Anchor the Future of Delta Gamma.

As one of the finest women’s organizations in North America, Delta Gamma has stood the test of time — but not by standing still. With more than 255,000 initiated members, 153 collegiate chapters, and almost 200 alumnae groups, our Founders’ “little club of mutual helpfulness” has grown into a mighty network of compassionate, driven and authentic women like you, determined to make the world better. Delta Gammas empower each other to serve and lead, to learn and grow, and to develop the best qualities of their character. For almost 150 years, Delta Gammas like you have shown the world what it means to do good.

In 2023, we will celebrate our sesquicentennial. As we approach the 2022-2024 biennium, the Delta Gamma Foundation, in partnership with the Fraternity, is embarking on a campaign to ensure the future of our sisterhood. Anchoring the Future: The Campaign for Delta Gamma is for all alumnae and collegiate members of Delta Gamma and will provide a lasting foundation to build upon the ideals we cherish. With your support, the Campaign will sustain our sisterhood for generations to come as Delta Gamma remains an unstoppable force for good.

With the goal of inspiring a sense of true belonging and advancing opportunities for all members to put purpose to practice, we are committed to four Campaign priorities — our Campaign Pillars:

With your support, Delta Gamma will realize the initiatives, grants, and facilities that help our members be their best selves, while showcasing all that we have accomplished throughout our history.

Anchoring the Future: The Campaign for Delta Gamma will enrich the lives of our alumnae and collegiate members, allowing Delta Gamma to do even more in the pursuit of doing good.

Training and Programming

Delta Gamma is shaped by our Culture of Care, and our Training and Programming initiatives reflect this commitment in action. Time and again, participants tell us that safe and comfortable environments, together with their sisters, provide the best opportunity to learn and grow. Among Delta Gamma’s key initiatives are Social Responsibility, Health and Well-Being, and Leadership.

Gifts to the Foundation support values-based Fraternity programming that provides transformational risk-management and self-development experiences for collegiate participants and alumnae facilitators. These initiatives prepare members for the challenges facing them today and build them into leaders and change-makers for the future.

When you support Training and Programming, you help determine the future of our sisterhood. You assist alumnae and collegians alike to develop their leadership, mentoring, and professional skills. And you’re empowering members to tackle the tough realities of life. These initiatives address the effects of alcohol use, sexual assault prevention and survivor support, and attention to mental health and other well-being. You’re preparing members to be advocates for themselves and their sisters, and fostering the high ideals of Delta Gamma, no matter their age or stage in life.

“Being a Delta Gamma means not only hoping for change, but acting on it. It means holding myself to a higher standard and pushing those around me to achieve their fullest potential. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to see these ideals in action.”

Individual Member Support

As Delta Gammas, we are steadfast in our commitment to help each other, especially in times of trouble. From the launch of our first scholarship program in 1911 to the creation of the Crisis Grant fund in 1996, we provide financial support to alumnae and collegians when they need it most, whether they are facing a personal crisis, need support to continue their education or gain additional professional training.

Our program is a leader in the fraternity/sorority community, but it is becoming more and more difficult to meet our sisters’ needs. Members are turning to Delta Gamma for financial assistance more frequently than at any other time in our history.

Your gifts to Individual Member Support will provide access for both alumnae and collegians as they face the ever-increasing costs of education and unexpected life events.

“As a recipient of two Delta Gamma Foundation fellowships, I feel extremely fortunate to have had this support in my career. These awards allowed me to meet tuition costs and maintain our family’s budget. My coursework led to a master's in educational leadership as well as an administrative credential. Foundation support in the form of scholarships and fellowships demonstrates through action the belief that Article II – 'promotes educational and cultural interests' – is what Delta Gamma stands for.”

Heartfelt Giving and Philanthropy

Loyalty Fund

Delta Gammas are there for one another. We redefine the path for those who come next. By making a gift to the Loyalty Fund, the Delta Gamma Foundation’s unrestricted fund for areas of greatest need, you’re securing the future for those we serve. You’re empowering the Foundation to respond to members’ most immediate challenges. You’re enriching the lives of alumnae and collegians through cutting-edge initiatives. And you’re an advocate for individuals in the blind and visually impaired community. Unrestricted giving provides the Foundation with operational resources to excel in its work, grow for even greater impact and realize its mission.

“I love to make unrestricted gifts because I feel that the people leading the organization can make the best decision in using the funds. I know that especially in times like these, unrestricted funds are needed to continue the work of the Foundation. This allows my gift to be flexible and directed to where it is most needed.”

- Katie Schonert, Gamma Alpha-Tennessee, Rose Circle Society member

Service for Sight

For generations, Delta Gammas have promoted sight conservation and eye health and have been advocates for people in the blind and visually impaired community. Your gifts provide the tools and support people need to achieve their full potential. We are all touched by the issue of sight impairment or loss. From eye diseases as we age, to eye injuries, the Foundation supports education and research to maintain and preserve sight.

Capital Initiatives

Delta Gamma was the first women’s fraternal organization to have constructed a building for housing executive offices, staff and archives — a testament to our longstanding history of professionalism and service to our members.

Leadership Training Center

As a volunteer-led organization, our success depends on engaged and well-trained leaders. The Leadership Training Center will serve as the training hub of the organization — a space for alumnae and collegiate leaders, volunteers and staff to receive the necessary professional development and fellowship to support our members. The Center will be equipped with technology for in-person and virtual meetings to benefit all members. The new facilities will consider our members' evolving needs — and will be equipped with flexible and adaptable spaces and technology.

Expanded Archives

As the Delta Gamma Archives grow, only 10% of the collection is on display due to space constraints. An expanded Archive Museum will be as rich and engaging as our history. It will preserve and display women’s empowerment through higher education, the stories of trailblazing Delta Gammas and our legacy of doing good. As the Foundation funds the digitization of each and every Anchora since 1884, members will be able to search for stories meaningful to them, researchers will be able to access historic developments in Delta Gamma, and individuals interested in sorority history will have the issues at their fingertips. The Museum will provide a space to experience Delta Gamma’s celebrated history, discover stories hidden away in boxes, and better understand our past’s broader historical context.

Executive Offices

Delta Gamma’s Executive Offices serves as the heart of our organization. A renovated Executive Offices is needed to accommodate our professional staff and volunteers today and to prepare Delta Gamma for the future. As the needs of the Fraternity, Foundation and Office of Housing shift and grow, and technology provides new opportunities to collaborate and improve productivity, state-of-the-art offices are critical to sustain our organization.

Chapter Housing Campaigns

Maintaining high-quality learning spaces through designated educational areas is integral to many Delta Gamma chapters. Within these spaces, our women have the opportunity to learn and grow alongside a supportive sisterhood that greatly enhances their experiences.

The needs of our sisterhood and Service for Sight partners are growing and changing; because of YOU, the Delta Gamma Foundation has been able to grow alongside them for many years. We are now at a pivotal point in our organization’s history, where the demand for resources far outweighs our ability to respond. Your support of this campaign is the only way we can continue to ensure the future of our sisterhood. Join us as we Anchor the Future of Delta Gamma by investing in the Foundation and ensuring our ongoing pursuit of doing good.
