The mission of alpha Kappa Delta Phi’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is three-fold:
- To raise funds on a national level to contribute to a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating breast cancer.
- To dedicate at least one Service Event per chapter/colony to Breast Cancer Awareness in October.
- To develop a comprehensive page on our national website that provides links to breast cancer resources.
Since 1999, alpha Kappa Delta Phi Sorority, Inc. has been in the fight against breast cancer. Each year, our organization joins the fight by raising awareness and funds for breast health and cancer research. We have donated over $950,000 to help millions of women and their families fight and end breast cancer. In 2018, we raised $97,202 through the efforts of our 50 chapters and over 6000 sisters. 2018 marked the first year of the philanthropic arm of the alpha Kappa Delta Phi International Foundation. This foundation and the sisters of alpha Kappa Delta Phi will donate the proceeds of our fundraising efforts to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to support research.
Charity Ball is our chapter’s biggest philanthropy event that takes place at the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Week! It consists of guest speakers, performances, and dinner! All proceeds go to alpha Kappa Delta Phi International Foundation to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and education, screening and diagnosis, treatment, support services, and research.
The Associate Chapter at UNC-Chapel Hill has held several events since its establishment at the university in 1996 to raise awareness and raise funds for breast cancer research. Such events are Relay for Life, Breast Cancer Awareness Week, and our Annual Charity Ball. The chapter also participates in various fundraising initiatives throughout the year! Together, we can make a difference!
