Proceeds from our philanthropic events benefit the Alpha Phi Foundation to fund research and educational programs that support the improvement of Women’s heart health.

Philanthropy Events


The Alpha Phi Foundation is committed to raising awareness and contributing to the research of women's heart health. In the Fall, we host an event called "Mac N Phis" where students from all over campus come and have a meal on our lawn. In the Spring, we put on "PHIFA" which is an intense bubble soccer tournament open to anyone to form teams and compete.

the Alpha Phi


In 1956, Alpha Phi became one of the first women’s fraternities to establish a Foundation. Today, Alpha Phi Foundation is a thriving, well-known and respected philanthropic leader in the Greek community. The Foundation supports Alpha Phi’s leadership training and programming, awards need-based and merit-based scholarships, invests in the advancement of women’s heart health, and preserves our rich and expansive heritage.

Incorporated in 1956, Alpha Phi Foundation is one of the oldest women’s fraternal foundations. Its primary philanthropic goals are supporting women’s heart health and developing women as leaders. The Foundation awards funds for programs that advance leadership development, encourage academic excellence, improve women's heart health, support sisters in need and educate about the value of philanthropy. The Foundation is a non-profit organization supported by contributions from individual members, collegiate and alumnae chapters, corporations, and friends. It is well known and respected internationally as a prominent philanthropic leader in the Greek community, with Alpha Phi chapters raising hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Each chapter raises funds for the Foundation through popular campus events, and in 2015–2016, collegiate chapters raised more than $2 million for the Foundation.

When Alpha Phi collegiate chapters raise money for the Alpha Phi Foundation, they don’t just raise funds to advance the work of the Foundation, they aim to heighten awareness of women’s heart health through a variety of creative and innovative activities. Whether it’s a formal Red Dress Gala or an exhilarating Move Your Phi’t 5K, Alpha Phi educates with heart. With the help of development professionals on staff at the Foundation, collegiate chapters are able to establish their own active philanthropic initiatives.
