Each year, alumnae, undergraduates, friends of Delta Phi Epsilon and family members, generously support the Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation. These contributions help advance our members through educational initiatives, scholarships and leadership development. Your support each year is needed to ensure continued success.
Delta Phi Epsilon has a strong and strategic vision for the future, including even more innovative programming to develop our members, opportunities for undergraduate and alumnae to connect, and vehicles to put Delta Phi Epsilon on the global map as a developer of women.
The moment you accepted your bid to Delta Phi Epsilon, you pledged yourself to a lifetime of sisterhood. Through our lifetime giving societies, you are also pledging yourself to a lifetime of support for the future of our organization. Consistent loyalty to the purple and the gold is recognized in Lifetime Giving Societies. LGS donors are recognized with special private events and in sorority publications.
Our Founder, Ida Landau was a woman of action. When she married her husband, who was not a U.S. national, the law of the time stated that she had to forfeit her own U.S. citizenship. Ida immediately petitioned Congress bringing attention to the injustice, and leading to the passage of the Cable Act, that ensured women could marry whomever they wanted without losing their citizenship.
Her legacy of action continued when she worked as a war correspondent during WWII and also assisted with relocating Jewish refugees. For Ida, helping others was second nature. As a donor to the Educational Foundation, you are just like Ida, making a difference for others.
The Ida Landau Sustainer’s Society recognizes major annual donors to the Educational Foundation. Alumnae who graduated more than 15 years ago and friends of the Educational Foundation who contribute $1,000 or more each year become members of the Ida Landau Society. Alumnae who graduated within the previous 14 years become a member of the ILS with a $500 annual gift.
Tribute gifts are a tradition of the Educational Foundation since its founding in 1967. By giving on a sister’s or chapter’s behalf you can honor them in a meaningful and tangible way.
With gifts starting at $5, the Educational Foundation notifies the honoree(s)/next-of-kin with a special Educational Foundation letter.
Delta Phi Epsilon is thankful for the support from parents and other friends of DPhiE. It is only with continued support that The Educational Foundation can provide a sisterhood experience rich with tradition, innovation and opportunities for growth.
Did you know that many companies offer matching gifts to encourage philanthropy among their employees? By checking your eligibility, you may be able to double or triple the impact of your gift.
In addition to financial support, Delta Phi Epsilon is always in need of dedicated volunteers. Our young members thrive through their guidance, our chapter leaders succeed through their mentorship and our sorority is strengthened by their leadership.
DPhiE needs engaging alumnae and advocates with the talents, wisdom and energy to help us in our mission to provide everyone a sisterhood experience rich in tradition, innovation and opportunities for growth.
