Making an Impact
Since 1917, Delta Phi Epsilon sisters have valued the importance of serving our local communities. Throughout the years, we have supported various causes and raised millions of dollars. Our official philanthropic partners hold great significance to our sisterhood and are a key part of the Delta Phi Epsilon membership experience.

Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation

The Foundation raises, manages and awards funds to provide undergraduate and graduate scholarships to our sisters. It also provides grants to support our innovative educational and leadership programs.

The National Association for Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD)

 As the first international sorority to pledge regular support to ANAD, Delta Phi Epsilon began its commitment and formal affiliation with ANAD in 1985. This followed a decision of the delegates at the 1983 Convention that it was time to change philanthropic projects to 'better reflect the needs of young people today.'

Since our founding, Delta Phi Epsilon has placed importance on celebrating individuality and valuing someone for who they are, not what they look like. Sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon educate, advocate, and raise funds for ANAD. We are ambassadors for healthy attitudes, bodies, and behaviors on campus and within the community.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF)

Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system, was virtually unknown to the general population until 1955. It was then that a group of parents formed CFF to be the driving force in pursuit of a cure. One of those parents was Phyllis Kossoff, a sister of Delta Phi Epsilon, Delta Chapter at Hunter College.

In 1957, Phyllis came to Convention and shared her endeavors, resulting in the partnership our sisters so passionately support today. Delta Phi Epsilon has donated over $1 million to research in hopes of making CF stand for Cure Found.
