Alpha Phi Foundation
Alpha Phi supports the Alpha Phi Foundation which branches off into funding for various programs: Leadership, Scholarship, Women's Heart Health, Forget Me Not Grants, and Heritage.
In 1956, Alpha Phi was one of the first women's fraternities to establish a Foundation. Demonstrating the philanthropic spirit of love and charity intended by our founders, the Foundation was created as a trust to award grants specifically for scholarship and cardiac aid. One of the Foundation’s giving circles is named after founder Clara Bradley Burdette, who was also a philanthropist. Her prime objective in life was developing better opportunities for women, and one of her personal mottos was to "live a life of purpose."
Director of Philanthropy
The Foundation’s mission is "advancing women's lives through the power of philanthropy". It is well known and respected internationally as a prominent philanthropic leader for the Greek community. Our Foundation completed a ten million dollar campaign for leadership in 2010, the largest in National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) history. It also receives over one million dollars annually from collegiate chapters that host evening galas, heart walks and campus-wide talent shows.
At Florida Tech and around Melbourne, Florida, the Theta Zeta chapter hosts a series of events to support the Alpha Phi Foundation. The sisters of Alpha Phi also participate in other events that support cardiac research and heart health as well as philanthropy events of other Greek chapters on campus.
