PROGRAMS Breast Cancer Awareness
alpha Kappa Delta Phi’s national philanthropy is Breast Cancer Awareness. While we spend the entire year working on our efforts to do service, raise funds, and give back, October is national Breast Cancer Awareness month, and during this month, our sisters nationwide make sure to dedicate at least one Service event to Breast Cancer Awareness.
The mission of alpha Kappa Delta Phi's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is three-fold:
To raise funds on a international 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
In 1998, alpha Kappa Delta Phi launched its first-ever National Service project. Through our 22 chapter effort, we dedicated the year of 1998-99 to Breast Cancer Awareness by educating ourselves, our college campuses, and our communities. Through the efforts of our active sisters and alumnae, we have raised over $250,000 throughout the years for breast cancer research. In addition to raising funds, awareness is spread on all our campus communities through service projects, workshops, informational booths, or forums.
