Cream Rose Tribute Giving Gardeners Toolkit

The Foundation is eagerly anticipating our Sesquicentennial Celebration in June! As we prepare to come together in celebration of sisterhood, we are excited to introduce a special way for you to be part of Delta Gamma’s Anchoring the Future campaign!

We’re calling on you to be one of the very first Foundation’s Cream Rose Gardeners and encourage giving through our Inaugural Cream Rose Tribute Giving opportunity! Because of your affinity and love for the Delta Gamma Foundation, we know you will help our garden grow!

In this toolkit, you’ll find information about how you can help support these efforts either digitally, in person when we gather in Memphis or both!

The spring showers will start soon, and our garden will begin growing — so get ready to roll up your sleeves and help us plant seeds of generosity! Please reach out to Foundation communications at if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for being a Cream Rose Tribute Giving Gardener and for helping the Delta Gamma Foundation and our sisterhood flourish.
