Hi everyone, I'm the VP Foundation for Delta Gamma at Furman University. I've had this position for over a year and a half, and I will be ending my two consecutive terms in mid January. Our philanthropy is Service for Sight, with spin-offs of the Golden Anchor Program (which works with nursing home residents) and a series of lectures in values and ethics. With the support from my chapter, our philanthropy was successfully rebuilt from being in a shambles when I got into office, and I hope that things will continue to improve after I graduate. This community is a great idea, and I hope it will help others strengthen their programs!

Hello everyone, my name is Meg and I'm the creator of this community. I'm the philanthropy chair for Alpha Omicron Pi at Rhodes College in Memphis.

I created this community to help us organize our thoughts on philanthropy events and ways that we can raise awareness on campus and through the communities. Those of us involved in philanthropy are passionate people, we care about what we do, and we want to make it accessible to everyone else, so I hope this works out!

My thought here is that we can post reports on the types of events we've held for our philanthropies, as well as raising awareness about each other's philanthropy's national events (like the Arthritis Walk that's held nationally every year).

When you join, please tell us a little about yourself-- what organization you're with and that organization's philanthropy(ies). I'd also like for us to tag entries with organization names, philanthropies, and types of events.

Ex: If I wrote about the softball tournament we have, I'd tag it with alpha omicron pi, softball tournament, strikeout, arthritis foundation.

Note: This is not a community for solicitation. While posting information about a walk or fundraiser for a recognized philanthropy (AF, ACS, St. Jude, etc) is not considered solicitation, repeated posts specifically requesting donations or requesting donations for non-established philanthropies will result in your being banned from this community.
