About the Foundation

Since 1957, the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation has furthered the Fraternity’s purpose of preparing strong, capable, intelligent women to lead Alpha Xi Delta and our world by creating opportunities for members to realize their potential. 
The mission of the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation is:
  • To support Fraternity educational and leadership development programming;
  • To provide and continue to expand scholarships, grants and member support funds; and
  • To encourage philanthropy.

Since it was established, the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation has awarded more than $5 million for Alpha Xi Delta’s educational programs, scholarships and philanthropic activities.
