Chapter Philanthropy & Service
Philanthropy is a big part of our chapter’s values. As a chapter, we take pride in the philanthropy events that we organize to raise money for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation and the many ways we serve our community. Alpha Gamma Delta’s main philanthropic focus is Fighting Hunger. We are proud partners with Feeding America and Meals on Wheels.
Since coming back to school in August, Theta Tau has fundraised almost $7,000 for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation through our campus wide philanthropy events. We fundraise through our two philanthropy events that are always campus favorites: Lip Sync Battle and Dunk-A-Gam. In the fall, our second annual Lip Sync Battle had representatives from each Greek organization on campus and many other clubs. Lip Sync Battle is a friendly competition where teams pick a popular song and sing and dance to the music. This year, we doubled the amount of money raised from the previous year! In the spring, we host an event called Dunk-A-Gam. At this event, people can pay money to dunk our sisters and other leaders on campus in a dunk tank! This past year we partner with Belmont Panhellenic and our Interfraternity Council to make this event successful.
All of the money that we raise throughout the year goes towards the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation which donates the money to non-profit organizations that dedicate their work to fighting hunger! On a more local level, our chapter volunteers at various non-profit organizations, including Second Harvest, Rise Against Hunger, Boo at the Zoo, Safe Haven, and the JDRF Gala. Our chapter loves to contribute to our community in other opportunities besides fighting hunger. During week of service, our members give back with volunteering throughout the week with various organizations. It is a time of the year that each of our members looks forward to.
At Alpha Gamma Delta's 2018 International Convention, the Theta Tau chapter was award the Joy of Service Award for our philanthropic efforts over the last two academic years.
This coming year, we are excited for the events and service opportunities planned. Theta Tau’s heart for service is reflected in all each member of our incredible sisterhood.
