Endowments and annual gifts allow the Foundation to award undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships to members, as well as provide financial assistance to collegians through Sisters Helping Sisters: Need-Based Scholarships and to members in crisis through Crisis Grants.
With the rising costs of tuition, it is so important for our members to have options to make completing their education more affordable. Delta Gamma scholarships and fellowships are made possible through generous gifts to the Foundation.

As an effort to assist members in their times of trouble, Delta Gamma Foundation Crisis Grants (formerly Anchor Grants) were established in 1996. Crisis Grants assist Delta Gamma sisters who find themselves in extreme financial need created by job loss, health crisis, natural disaster, or other unexpected life circumstances. Crisis Grants are awarded throughout the year, as funds are available.
