Alpha Phi is one of the few Panhellenic sororities to have its own foundation. The Alpha Phi Foundation is the proud philanthropic partner of Alpha Phi International Fraternity, with a mission of “advancing women’s lives through the power of philanthropy”. Alpha Phi officially adopted Women’s Heart Health as a priority in 1946, which became the Foundation’s philanthropic cause upon its founding in 1956.
Alpha Phis are committed to benefiting the Alpha Phi Foundation and women’s heart health research since heart disease is the number one killer of women. Alpha Phi helps support this cause in many ways, most importantly through the Heart to Heart grant, a $100,000 contribution given by the Alpha Phi Foundation to the organization(s) that are doing the most innovative research in improving women’s heart health. Money from the Alpha Phi Foundation also influences our chapter through need and merit-based scholarships and grants for our sisters, as well as providing fully-funded attendance at Alpha Phi leadership conferences.
Our philanthropy is near and dear to our hearts as we support the hearts of other women and those in the community which supports us!
