Financial Literacy for Delta Gammas

When we think of health and safety, often the things that come to mind are healthy eating, physical fitness, mental well-being, peace of mind in our homes or having a safety-tested vehicle. How often do you think of financial planning and personal finance as key to your health and safety? We want you to feel empowered to educate yourself and become more confident in talking about money, planning for your future and being an independent decision-maker related to your financial health. By educating yourself and making informed decisions, you will find financial well-being possible.  

Funded by the Delta Gamma Foundation, these resources are designed just for Delta Gamma members, to assist you in gaining confidence in your own finances. Simply click into each section to explore the specific modules with resources, videos and other helpful information to learn at your own pace.

Hope Serving

The Hope Serving: Service-Learning Experience offers both collegiate and alumnae Delta Gammas the opportunity to participate in hands-on service related to our Service for Sight mission and develop as leaders on a local, regional and (inter)national level. The Hope Serving program encourages learning and critical thinking through hands-on service, community involvement, civic and social justice education.

 As a result of the Hope Serving experience, each participant will be able to:

  • Describe and emulate the Service for Sight mission.
  • Engage in lifelong service endeavors.
  • Create collumnae relationships.
  • Assess how Service for Sight impacts them as an individual.
  • Convey a rich understanding of the population served, and how this understanding parallels their sisterhood experience. 
  • Develop and articulate a deeper understanding of themself.  

Lewis Institute

Lewis Institute provides students with the opportunity to explore values congruence, identify their leadership style and strengths, understand successful approaches to conflict and develop an action plan or vision focused on systemic issues resulting in positive change.

Delta Gamma recognizes the significance of developing our members’ leadership capacity and the purposeful learning that occurs through values-based leadership programs. As a result, the Delta Gamma Fraternity and Foundation are committed to fund one woman from each collegiate chapter to attend the Lewis Institute. Check out this video from a past session of Lewis Institute.
