Published: July 26, 2019

Indianapolis, IN – The Alpha Xi Delta Foundation is proud to announce it has raised $2,022,767.81 in its first ever comprehensive campaign. This campaign had an original fundraising goal of $1.25 million.

The Alpha Xi Delta Foundation launched the 125th Anniversary Campaign in 2017 leading up to Alpha Xi Delta’s 125th anniversary on April 17, 2018, and wrapped up the campaign on May 31, 2019. A key focus of the campaign was to establish a fund that will allow the Fraternity to support The Founders’ Academy (TFA), the premier summer educational opportunity for Chapter Presidents and emerging leaders. TFA focuses on the development and application of StrengthsFinder™ principles for individual and organizational leadership. As the TFA funds grow, the Foundation grant to the Fraternity will grow and reduce the cost to the chapter to attend this award-winning program. Through the 125th Anniversary Campaign:

  • Nearly 13,000 women donated.
  • More than 1,450 undergraduate members donated.
  • The average gift size was $167.
  • The largest gift was $125,000!
