Alpha Xi Delta’s Philanthropic Focus:
The Kindly Hearts Initiative
The Kindly Hearts Initiative serves as the umbrella to our national philanthropic focus of supporting children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Deltas across the country support two Key Impact Organizations, FosterClub and StandUp for Kids, making a national and regional difference under the umbrella of our focus.
Letters of Love
All Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations participate in Letters of Love, Alpha Xi Delta’s national letter writing fundraising campaign. Held annually during the month of November this campaign benefits Alpha Xi Delta’s two Key Impact Organizations, StandUp for Kids and FosterClub.
Our Chapter's Impact:
As Alpha Xi Deltas, the Iota Upsilon chapter is always proud to support our National Philanthropy, Autism Speaks!
Throughout the year, we participate in and host events in order to promote understanding and acceptance of autism and fundraise for Autism Speaks. Here, you can learn more about each event on and off campus.
Autism Speaks Walk
Each year, our sisters look forward to participating in the Autism Speaks Walk in St. Louis. We work hard to fundraise before the walk, and volunteer through registration, tabling, and clean up the day of the Autism Speaks Walk. This event is especially important to our sisters, because Alpha Xi Delta is the Nation Walk Sponsor for Autism Speaks Walks around the nation.
Additional Philanthropic Events
Additional events we coordinate throughout the semester may involve group and individual service project opportunities, donation drives, profit share nights at local restaurants, food fundraising events and more! Follow us on social media to see event announcements and information.
