About Our Philanthropy
At Convention 2012, Gamma Phi Beta announced their new philanthropic focus: Building Strong Girls. As advocates for women, the organization envisions a community where every girl and woman has the skills to succeed in life. The Sorority’s new philanthropic focus expresses their philanthropic mission, to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls, in today’s world.
In addition to a new philanthropic focus, the Sorority also announced its newest philanthropic partner – Girls on the Run. A volunteer-led program, Girls on the Run weaves training for a 5K run with fun, experience-based lessons that improve self-awareness, build a collection of positive experiences and inspire life-changing confidence through accomplishment. The organization’s programming inspires self-respect and healthy lifestyles in girls, and their core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development.
Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
