Philanthropy

Every chapter of Alpha Phi is united by a single goal when it comes to philanthropy. Internationally, Alpha Phi’s philanthropy focuses on women’s heart health. As the Delta Nu chapter of Alpha Phi, we organize various events to help raise money for The Alpha Phi Foundation. The Alpha Phi Foundation divides donations into several categories including women’s heart health, scholarships and leadership programs. Our chapter holds four main events annually to raise money and we have a lot of fun while doing it.

The Delta Nu chapter’s passion for donating time to community service is incredible. Our members go above and beyond by volunteering at numerous local organizations such as hospitals, elementary schools, food pantries, senior care centers and animal shelters. While visiting the senior care center, we spend time with its residents, organize activities and join them for meals. We also donate much needed supplies to a local shelter for battered women and children. We want to be sure we support those in need and give back to our community through service.

Mac and Phi's

Mac and Phi's is one of our most fun annual events! This year, the event took place at Orono Brewing Company where we served macaroni and cheese from 6pm-8pm. We sold single bowls as well as an unlimited option complete with a topping bar! Organizations from across campus came out to support the Alpha Phi Foundation.

Move Your Phi't

Move Your Phi't is an annual 5K run/walk through our beautiful University of Maine campus. This event is held in the fall and also raises money for The Alpha Phi Foundation. It's a great time to catch up with alumnae in the area and spend the day outside with sisters.

 

The Alpha Phi Foundation

In 1956, Alpha Phi was one of the first women's fraternities to establish their own charitable Foundation.
Demonstrating the philanthropic spirit of love and charity intended by our Founders, the Alpha Phi Foundation empowers women to be generous givers. We raise and award funds for programs that advance leadership development, encourage academic excellence, improve women’s heart health, support sisters in need and educate about the value of philanthropy. Today Alpha Phis continue to support local and national heart health units through Foundation Grants, monetary donations and community service.

We Phis hold our philanthropy very close to our hearts. Our philanthropy is centered on the Alpha Phi Foundation, aiding in efforts to support research and education for women’s heart health. 

OUR MISSION

Advancing women's lives through the power of philanthropy.

OUR VISION

 As a preeminent philanthropic organization, Alpha Phi Foundation is recognized for the strength of our endowment and for innovation in cultivating and sustaining donor participation. We strive to be the philanthropy-of-choice among our members, with every Alpha Phi supporting the Foundation.
