Hand to Hand. Heart to Heart.
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 priority upon its founding in 1956.
Alpha Phis are committed to benefiting our philanthropy the Alpha Phi Foundation, which supports women’s heart health. Heart Disease is the number one killer of women, more than all forms of cancer combined. Alpha Phi helps 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.
Red Dress Gala
Our biggest philanthropy event of the year is the Red Dress Gala. Members of Betta Sigma are encouraged to invite friends and family to the event. A live auction along with donations allow us to make yearly contributions in thousands of dollars to the Alpha Phi Foundation!
Mac N Phis
Mac n' Phis is our spring philanthropy event with an all you can eat macaroni bar! Students swing by for dinner, buy shirts, and socialize!
This is the final event of our spring philanthropy week! This event is where fraternities and sororities compete in a lip sync battle. At the end of the event the winner of our philanthropy week (now called our Heart Throb) is announced.
