Service and Philanthropy are cornerstones of Alpha Phi. At Ashland, Alpha Phi is dedicated to giving from the heart to the heart by supporting our International cause, The Alpha Phi Foundation. The Foundation raises awareness and funds research for the number one killer of women – heart disease.
Our Foundation’s mission is very near and dear to us. Alpha Phi at Ashland sponsors multiple philanthropic events throughout the year to benefit the Alpha Phi Foundation. We hold a Cardiac Care Week in February to educate Ashland’s campus on heart health. Alpha Phi also presents Mr. University every spring as a male beauty pageant to find Ashland’s biggest “heartbreaker.” The chapter’s most prestigious event is the annual Red Dress Gala, held in the fall. This is a silent auction fundraiser that alumnae, other Alpha Phi chapters, and the community make successful. During the 2013 academic year, Alpha Phi raised over $16,000 for the Foundation!!
In addition to our philanthropic work, Alpha Phi also gives back to the Ashland community. Alpha Phi firmly believes in service and is finding creative ways to better Ashland, Ohio. Holding food drives, supporting the troops, and delivering valentines to area seniors are just a few ways we serve locally.
