Alpha Xi Delta Foundation announces Cora's Challenge

Published: September 14, 2017

Indianapolis, IN – The Alpha Xi Delta Foundation is launching the second annual Cora’s Challenge on September 14, 2017 in honor of one of Alpha Xi Delta Founders and first National President, Cora Bollinger Block.

Cora’s Challenge is a 24-hour day of giving where Alpha Xi Delta Sisters and friends are being challenged to make donations to the Alpha Xi Delta Foundation in honor of Cora’s 149th birthday. When donors give during Cora’s Challenge, they make possible programs like The Leadership Coach Program, Courageous Conversations and The Founders’ Academy that are not fully funded by Alpha Xi Delta member dues and fees.

The goal for the 2017 Cora’s Challenge is to raise $18,680 in just 24 hours. Alpha Xi Delta Sisters and friends are invited to share about Cora’s Challenge on social media using #CorasChallenge and #AXiDLoyal.
