About Our Philanthropy
AEPHi encourages its sisters to be active in all types of community service and philanthropic activities. The national organization has two official philanthropies: The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and the Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Israel. The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation was founded by Elizabeth Glaser (an AEPhi at the University of Wisconsin, Sigma Chapter) and two of her close friends in 1988, shortly after Elizabeth and her husband, Paul, discovered that she, along with their two children Ariel and Jake, were infected with the AIDS virus, a result of a blood transfusion.
Goals of This Year
The goal of the organization is to educate people on the special issues concerning children with the AIDS virus. The foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars towards AIDS research in the 15+ years since its inception at the Glaser's kitchen table. AEPhi is proud to be able to support such a worthy cause through the efforts of its members.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing pediatric HIV infection and eliminating pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention, care, and treatment programs. Founded in 1988, EGPAF works in 15 countries around the world.
