PHILANTHROPY EVENT: SERVICE SIGHT

Protecting the gift of sight is one of Delta Gamma's highest priorities. Through the four schools founded by Delta Gamma, children who are blind or visually impaired learn specialized skills and are provided the resources they need to thrive. Service for Sight has been at the heart of the Delta Gamma mission since 1936 when a sister from the Eta chapter in Akron, Ohio lost her eyesight, and the Delta Gamma Foundation made their philanthropic mission to provide aid to the blind. Delta Gamma also works with Joining Forces to support and give back to service men and women who have experienced vision impairment, eye trauma or vision loss.

PHILANTHROPY EVENT: ANCHORSPLASH

Anchorsplash is our national philanthropy event held each fall to raise money and awareness for Service for Sight. Greek organizations across campus compete in a series of pool events with Delta Gamma members as their coaches. Events include relay races, diving competition and synchronized swimming. Our event this past fall was extremely successful with 22 participating teams and over $6,500 raised for our foundation, Service for Sight.

PHILANTHROPY EVENT: ANCHORTEE

Anchor Tee is Delta Gamma’s annual golf outing that takes place at Hawk Hollow Golf Course. This event involves collegians, families and the local community in raising funds and awareness for Service for Sight. 

PHILANTHROPY EVENT: SERVICE DOGS

Delta Gamma also works with Leader Dogs for the Blind. Our “Pizza and Puppies” event raises money for the service dog organization by collecting donations for pizza and it allows students to interact with the dogs at the Rock.
