Alpha Phi Foundation
Alpha Phi Foundation is the proud philanthropic partner of Alpha Phi International Fraternity, with a mission of advancing women’s lives through the power of philanthropy. Alpha Phi officially adopted Women’s Heart Health as a priority in 1946, which became the Foundation’s philanthropic priority upon its founding in 1956. Today, the Foundation proudly invests in leadership, scholarship and emergency aid for its members, as well as programs and research that study heart disease in women – specifically its symptoms, treatment and prevention through its annual Heart to Heart Grant. Alpha Phi Foundation Canada was just established in July 2018, with the goal of supporting Canadian members in their academic pursuits.
Alpha Phi Foundation supports Alpha Phi Fraternity, our members, and the communities in which we reside in their pursuit of advancing women’s lives now and into the future.
On October 5th, 2018, Alpha Phi hosted our first major philanthropy event, Alpha Phifa. This soccer tournament was a great success, as was the bake sale we ran while the event was taking place. The proceeds from tournament went to the Alpha Phi Foundation, and the winners of the tournament chose to donate their $100 prize money to The Alpha Phi Foundation as well. Overall, this allowed us to raise and donate over $300 for the Foundation. Contact us to find out more about next year's tournament!
We seek the highest ideal of womanhood, and we try to gain this ideal by cultivating not only the power and passion for seeking intellectual development but, also, the spirit of love and charity.
Service represents one of Alpha Phi's six core values. As such, we host a variety of service opportunities in the local community to encourage their members to give back. The specific types of opportunities a chapter offers its members vary based upon the needs of the local community and the interests and passions of the chapter members. Our chapters' service events include opportunities in the following four branches of Alpha Phi Cares: Heart Health Awareness, Ivy Green Initiative, Frances E. Willard Day of Service and Community Support. We hope to build relationships with multiple local organizations in Montreal and dedicate our time and service to them throughout the year. We want to be sure we support those in need and give back to our community through service.
