WE are Here to
Joining this sisterhood is a partnership.
DG will be there for you — and each member supports the organization as a whole. After joining, members will have access to leadership opportunities, philanthropy work, career networking and academic resources.
Each Delta Gamma chapter has the ability to set their own member dues depending on the needs determined by their chapter budget.
These dues cover the expenses to run the local collegiate chapter, including programming, social events, housing (if applicable), and chapter operations.
While the budget is determined by the chapter officers, the entire chapter votes to approve its operating budget each year. Budgets, and therefore chapter dues and fees vary across campuses based on chapter size, housing status, and activities.
Each new member within Delta Gamma pays standard fees to Executive Offices. These fees are outlined below, and are included in the dues you would pay to your collegiate chapter but are not the total amount of your chapter dues.
DUES AND FEES
New Member Fee: $45.00 (one time fee paid as a new member)
Initiation Fee: $135.00 (one time fee paid as a new member)
Per Capita Dues: $90.00 (paid once a year as a new member/member)
Technology Fee: $22.00 (paid once a year as a new member/member)
House Corporation Fee: range varies based upon the property status
- Chapter Operations Fee: range varies on chapter’s operational needs
HOW TO PAY
Dues and fees can be paid via check, e-check or credit card using a online platform called greekbill. In greekbill, you are able to:
- View invoices, sign contracts and make payments through the online member portal
- Choose an installment plan (semesterly/quarterly or monthly) to pay yearly chapter dues and fees
- Set up auto payment to automatically withdraw payments per the installment schedule
While this information provides some general insight into chapter dues for Delta Gamma new members, it is essential that you review the information shared by the local Delta Gamma chapters for more specifics. Often times, your campus Panhellenic may share this information for all collegiate chapters on the campus, as well.
Helping members make ends meet.
Even though it can’t be used to offset the cost of membership dues, financial aid can alleviate the financial burden on our members when it comes to the cost of tuition, and in some cases, living expenses. Initiated members can apply for these scholarships and loans through the Delta Gamma Foundation:
SCHOLARSHIP AND LOANS

IMPORTANT CAUSES DELTA GAMMA HAS DONATED TO RECENTLY:
In 2020, as part of the H.K. Stuart Spirit of Service award, this year's winning chapter, Gamma Zeta-Louisiana State, requested that the Delta Gamma Foundation designate the $2,500 award grant to the Black Lives Matter Global Network through ActBlue charities.
We’ve also granted 15 Crisis Grants as a response to members' financial emergencies as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Crisis Grants are routinely routed to victims of natural disasters like wildfires and hurricanes.
For almost 100 years, all of our Service for Sight work, including the DG schools and grants, are helping people who are blind or visually impaired by providing access, advocacy and hands-on support.
In June of 2020, Delta Gamma Fraternity made a donation to Color of Change Education Fund, Inc. and Loveland Foundation, Inc.
This fellowship is special to me because it gives me the opportunity to study what I love without worrying about student loans. It allows me to work two jobs that I love without having to pick up extra shifts to pay rent.
