Alpha Xi Delta’s Philanthropic Focus






The Kindly Hearts Initiative

The Kindly Hearts Initiative serves as the umbrella to our national philanthropic focus of supporting children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Deltas across the country support two Key Impact Organizations, FosterClub and StandUp for Kids, making a national and regional difference under the umbrella of our focus.

Letters of Love

All Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations participate in Letters of Love, Alpha Xi Delta’s national letter writing fundraising campaign. Held annually during the month of November this campaign benefits Alpha Xi Delta’s two Key Impact Organizations, StandUp for Kids and FosterClub.


Our Chapter's Impact:

Alpha Xi Delta's commitment to creating a positive impact is exemplified through our national Kindly Hearts Initiative, whose mission is focused on supporting children and teens going through homelessness or foster care. At the local level, our chapter at the University of Delaware engages with organizations such as Family Promise and McVey Elementary School.

Immersing ourselves in hands-on experiences with these children and families has been a rewarding and meaningful experience for our sisters. Witnessing their gratitude not only brings joy to our sisters but also serves as a reminder of the privileges we often take for granted. Through meaningful interactions, we create connections that go beyond philanthropy, creating a sense of community and shared humanity.

Our philanthropy events play a pivotal role in amplifying our mission, while also having a fun time. Football FrenXi, a flag football tournament involving other Greek life chapters as teams, not only is a fun way to fundraise but also gives a portion of the profits to the winning sorority and fraternity teams. The Step it Up 5k, is a 5k race that brings together our families, alumnae, and the UD student body and serves as a testament to our collective commitment to making a difference. We also do Xiti Night, an all-you-can-eat pasta event at the Xi house, which not only satisfies our appetites but also fuels our fundraising efforts. 

Additional Philanthropic Events

Additional events we coordinate throughout the semester may involve group and individual service project opportunities, donation drives, profit share nights at local restaurants, and food fundraising events! In addition, we also partner with other Greek life chapters for smaller events like car washes, dunk tanks, late-night deliveries, and more!
