Throughout the years, we have endeavored to lift up Alpha Phi members, couples, or families whose exceptional generosity has had a profound impact on Alpha Phi International, who inspire others to give with purpose, and who exemplify the true spirit of philanthropy.

This year, the Nancy Owen Craig Outstanding Philanthropist Award was awarded posthumously to Beverly Lasher (Theta-Michigan) for her generous planned gift that will leave a legacy of women supporting one another in lifelong achievement for generations to come through the Beverly Lasher Graduate Scholarship.
