Our philanthropy, Service for Sight, supports the four schools founded by Delta Gammas for the visually impaired and other North American organizations that promote sight preservation and conservation. This philanthropy has been at the heart of the Delta Gamma mission since 1936 when a member who was blind, Ruth Billow, Eta-Akron, petitioned to adopt “Aid to the Blind” as our official philanthropy.

Service for Sight: Joining Forces
Service for Sight: Joining Forces is an adjunct to Service for Sight. The purpose of this initiative is to present a vehicle for collegians and alumnae to support and give back to service men and women who have experienced vision impairment, eye trauma or vision loss. This is accomplished through service provided by collegiate chapters, alumnae groups and individual members throughout North America, as well as through philanthropic grants provided by the Foundation to organizations that share this mission.
The Golden Anchor Program
The Golden Anchor Program is a branch of Service for Sight. Through this program, collegians assist Delta Gamma senior citizens, as well as other senior citizens who reside in health care facilities throughout the United States and Canada. Delta Gammas bring joy to their lives through personal interaction and the bonds of friendship.
