Chapter Philanthropy & Service

Community service and philanthropy are things very important to the women of Alpha Gamma Delta!

"To welcome the opportunity of contributing the world's work in the community where I am placed because of the joy of service thereby bestowed and talent of leadership multiplied." - The Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose

While each woman in our chapter strives to reach a minimum of 18 service hours per semester, many far surpass that number!

Some of our favorite ways to earn service hours include:

  • Adopt-a-spot Clean Up
  • Volunteering at the Humane Society 
  • SIU Dance Marathon
  • Blood Drives
  • And so much more!

In 2015, we held our first annual, "Cheesin' With AGD" where we raised over $1,000 in just a few short hours! Since then, "Cheesin'" has become one of our most successful philanthropy events. Every fall we hold "Cheesin' with AGD" and our members make and serve 3 types of grilled cheese. 
Some of our smaller philanthropy events include:

  • Lemonade and hot chocolate stands around campus
  • Selling popsicles on campus
  • Fundraising days and Panera, and McAllister's in Carbondale!
  • Plus supporting other chapters' philanthropy events!
