Delta Gamma Foundation provides resources for educational growth and philanthropic service for all members. Service for Sight has been at the heart of Delta Gamma’s philanthropic mission since 1936. The Delta Gamma Foundation has given over $2,800,000 in Service for Sight grants to organizations and schools that share the Foundation’s mission: to promote sight preservation and assistance to children and adults who are blind or visually impaired.
However, the work of the Foundation extends beyond service. The Foundation’s programs include scholarships, graduate fellowships, interest-free student loans, Service for Sight grants, leadership and educational programming, assistance to members in crisis and more.
Anchor Grants aid truly needy members of Delta Gamma, including members who find themselves in financial distress, emergency or crisis through aging, medical or other severe personal or family problems. A written financial statement and statement as to the reasons for need will be obtained from each applicant prior to any financial help being instituted. Three letters of reference must also be submitted to the Anchor Grant Committee. Two of the letters must be from Delta Gamma alumnae and one must be from an individual such as a doctor or member of the clergy who is knowledgeable about the member’s needs and reason for applying. All letters must be signed, dated and include the current phone number and address of the writer.
To apply for an Anchor Grant, you must be an initiated Delta Gamma member and in good standing with the Fraternity.
