Gamma Chi Philanthropy
Since 2000, the Gamma Chi chapter at the University of Denver has been a leader in philanthropy, both on campus and among Tri Delta chapters. To date, we have raised over $300,000 for St. Jude; in 2015 we raised $57,336. Our fundraising success can be attributed to the dedicated passion of our wonderful members and the support of the Greek and Denver community as well as our member's friends and family. We host several philanthropic events throughout the year including Sincerely Yours and Delta House of Pancakes.
Sincerely Yours is a letter writing campaign in which we write letters to family and friends, asking for donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Each member brings a list of 50+ addresses, personalizes a letter to each recipient, and then puts all of these letters in hand-addressed envelopes. This event accounts for 75% of the money we raise and is one we always look forward to.
DELTA HOUSE OF PANCAKES
DHOP satisfies the late night cravings of fellow DU students and other Greek members while raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. From 11pm to 3am, we serve unlimited pancakes, bacon, and orange juice; and there's always a line out the door! Thanks to the generous donations of alumnae, parents, and Denver businesses, all of the proceeds go directly to St. Jude. We log countless hours of preparation and act as the chefs, servers, and cleaning crew for the event. In 2015 we raised a total of $6,952!!
