About Our Philanthropy
Phi Gamma Delta participates in many philanthropies graciously, fundraising almost $100,000 for several organizations such as Tri Delta FlapJack, Alpha Phi Cardiac Arrest, Hoosiers Outrun Cancer, and Indiana University Dance Marathon (IUDM). The main fundraiser of FIJI is IUDM for the Riley Children's Hospital. The brothers of the Zeta chapter are extremely involved in IUDM. They hold several executive positions and maintain a large presence in IUDM committees.
Last Year's Philanthropy
This past year Phi Gamma Delta raised the most money of any Greek organization for Indiana University Dance Marathon. In 2012, they raised about $85,000 for IUDM. In terms of getting involved, they hold six executive positions including those involved in and responsible for the financial, internal, and external operations of the event.
Indiana University Dance Marathon is the second largest student run philanthropy in the nation. This past year, the organization raised over two million dollars for the Children’s Miracle Network at the Ryan White Infections Disease Center at the Riley Children's Hospital. In total, IUDM has raised over 14 million dollars over the years.
Contributions and Donations
From Dance Marathons and Radiothons to IHOP National Pancake Day and DQ Miracle Treat Day, there are multiple ways to participate and fundraise for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals partially rely on the support of corporate sponsors to fund life saving care, education and research. A variety of fundraising opportunities are available for organizations looking for a cohesive national program with a local impact.
