All undergraduate and alumnus members of The Delta Chi Fraternity have joined hands in fighting cancer together and named The V Foundation for Cancer Research as its preferred philanthropic organization. Each year, Delta Chi chapters and colonies raise tens of thousands of dollars fo international and local charitable organizations. It is the hope of Delta Ch that if all chapters unite their services and resources to benefit a single organization, Delta Chi can make a greater impact on that organization.
Steve Bossart, "AA" (International President) of the Fraternity said, "Delta Chi is excited and honored to be working with the V Foundation. Cancer has had an effect on every person”s life in some way. This partnership allows Delta Chi to help lead the fight against cancer.” Delta Chi chapters and colonies have contributed more than 223,000 man-hours to community service and have raised more than $1 million for charitable organizations. Its partnership with The V Foundation will allow Delta Chi to focus those efforts towards benefiting a single cause and organization.
Does Delta Chi support other charities?
While the V. Foundation is the preferred charitable organization, chapters and colonies are still able to raise resources or services for any other local or international charitable organization. In fact, chapters may choose to contribute to both a local organization and the V. Foundation. The Purdue Chapter of the Delta Chi Fraternity hosts annually, two philanthropies a year: one in the fall (which has changed every year) & one in the spring which is Dodgeball. In addition, the Chapter also participates in many other fraternity and sorority philanthropies.
