Philanthropic Initiatives

These are just a few ways that Delta Gammas are constantly helping ourselves, our sisters and our communities.

There are many ways to do good with us. And the best part is, if you’d like to try something new, we will support you. The opportunities for impact are endless.

Delta Gamma has helped establish and grow five schools for children who are visually impaired.

These schools are located in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis. Delta Gammas across North America support these schools and their students, who we call Hope Children, through service and fundraising.

This week of good deeds is typically held the second week in September and is a great way to put our purpose into practice. Do Good Week is a time to be intentional about doing a good deed for someone else or for your community. No matter where you are, this is a great way to connect back to Delta Gamma’s do good motto through random acts of kindness.

Since our first Do Good week in 2014, our sisters all over the world have participated and answered the call to do good. Delta Gammas have come together during challenging times to support sisters and friends. Delta Gammas have served their communities virtually or while socially distanced amidst a global pandemic to help others. Delta Gammas have done small things that make a big difference.

Every Delta Gamma is encouraged to complete a minimum of eight Do Good Hours each year. This service can be related to Service for Sight, or members can follow their passions in other areas of service. And although eight hours is the minimum, many members and chapters do much more!

In the 2021-2022 academic year, Delta Gammas dedicated more than  115,420 hours in service to others and MILLIONS of hours since we started keeping track over 30 years ago!

  • Volunteering with guide dog organizations and helping raise guide dog puppies.
  • Volunteering at schools for children who are blind or visually impaired.

  • Serving as guide runners and guides during 5Ks, marathons and other outdoor activities with athletes who are blind or visually impaired.

Promoting Mental Health

Delta Gamma is deeply committed to supporting our sisters’ mental health, including opportunities to become trained in Mental Health First Aid and QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer), a suicide-prevention framework. We also partner with Behind Happy Faces to provide educational opportunities around mental wellness and offer resources like our Mental Health Resource Guide, as well as a guide to support a sister who may have experienced racial harm.
