Congratulations to the 2020 Foundation Award Winners!
The Delta Gamma Foundation fosters lifetime enrichment for members, promotes Service for Sight and partners with the Fraternity to ensure the future of our sisterhood. Our dedicated members and friends make this mission possible through philanthropy, service and generous gifts to the Foundation which support our three key areas of support: Service for Sight, Grants to the Fraternity for Leadership and Educational Programming and Grants to Individual Members.
Two Organizations, One Delta Gamma:
We are one Delta Gamma, but in accordance with Internal Revenue Code, the Foundation and Fraternity are two separate organizations. In 1951, the Delta Gamma Foundation was formed as a complement to the Fraternity, creating a vehicle for members to promote the educational interests and social responsibility referenced in Article II of the Fraternity Constitution. Each entity offers unique opportunities for our members to do good. To see how we are living out this motto, view our most recent annual impact report and 990 Report.
The Foundation is governed by the Delta Gamma Foundation Constitution and Articles of Incorporation. Six elected members, and three ex-officio members who serve concurrently while in the Fraternity Council positions of Fraternity President, Council Trustee: Fraternity Programming, and Fraternity Treasurer, lead the Delta Gamma Foundation to ensure the fulfillment of its philanthropic mission. The Foundation has a body of voting members who participate in an Annual Meeting to determine both the leadership and direction of the Foundation.
