Community Contributions

Alpha Phi Foundation's Community Contribution Program allows Alpha Phi collegiate chapters to designate up to 50% of the chapter's donation to a Foundation program or chapter-specific fund.

Requests for suggested Community Contributions funds may also be made for a qualified local 501(c)(3) organization whose work is in alignment with the mission of Alpha Phi Foundation (supporting scholarship, leadership, members in crisis and women's heart health). Any exceptions to this policy will be evaluated and approved by the Foundation Executive Director.

Chapters interested in requesting Community Contributions must complete this form no later than 30 days in advance of the fundraising event, as all requests must be approved prior to the event date.

Non-Profit Organization

Through the Community Contributions program a chapter can suggest the support of an organization that is meaningful to the chapter and whose mission aligns with the mission of Alpha Phi Foundation. This allows the chapters to create partnerships with valuable organizations and for chapter members to deepen their connection to philanthropy.

For examples of successful Community Contributions partnerships, you can read our "Partnerships with Heart" Quarterly article.

In order to suggest a donation to a community organization, please make sure that you have the following information from the organization.
  • Name of the Organization
  • EIN Number (US) or Charitable Registration Number (Canada)
  • IRS Determination Letter
  • Mission Statement
  • Website & Contact Information for the Organization

Foundation Program

Chapters can designate a portion of their event proceeds to one of the Foundation's vital programs including: Forget Me Not, women's heart health, heritage, leadership or scholarship.

If you would like more information about any of the programs prior to making a donation, please contact Meagan Spellman, Program Manager, at mspellman@alphaphi.org.


Chapter-Specific Fund

If your chapter has a chapter-specific fund such as an AED that has not been fully funded or a Chapter Scholarship Endowment, the chapter can designate up to 50% of the event proceeds to that fund.


Following your event, you will need to complete the Philanthropy Event Summary Form to request a Community Contributions disbursement to your pre-approved 501(c)(3) organization or Foundation program or fund.
