Alpha Phi Foundation

Every Alpha Phi chapter has in common one philanthropic goal: to raise awareness and funds for women’s heart health. Alpha Phi supports local and national heart health units through grants, monetary donations and service in the community. Additionally, the Foundation encourages academic excellence in its members by awarding scholarships as well as setting in motion programs developed to further leadership skills.

Community Service

Our sisters are incredibly involved in the community! Year-round, you can find Alpha Phi members volunteering with a variety of groups and giving back in any way we can.

In the community at large, we are always there to lend a helping hand.
