Delta Phi Epsilon supports three international philanthropies: The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, The National Association for Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, and The Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation. Our philanthropic mission is to promote the well-being of these philanthropies through fundraising and scholarships. Over the years the Phi Lambda Chapter has helped raise thousands of dollars for these organizations. We have wonderful events where we spend time with each other to help those that are in need, and it is a great feeling giving back. We stress service as an opportunity to reach out to the community and grow as a group.
The mission of the Foundation is to encourage the personal and professional advancement of women by supporting educational and philanthropic programs that are responsive to the needs of our communities. The Educational Foundation provides scholarships and academic support to our sisters and their families. Last year, one of our own Phi Lambda sisters received a very well-deserved scholarship!
The Phi Lambda Chapter has a coin jar at each chapter meeting to collect donations to the Foundation. We are also holding Proceeds Nights at local restaurants. Our goal is to have proceeds nights at least once a month in order to raise as much money as possible.

Since 1976 The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, Inc.® (ANAD) has been dedicated to the prevention and alleviation of eating disorders by providing many multi-faceted programs for the entire eating disorder community. ANAD believes that early detection of eating disorders save lives and therefore, works to educate parents, teachers, families and communities about the dangers through a variety of mediums including their website, newsletter, and educational outreach events & programs. The Phi Lambda Chapter holds a Candlelight Vigil and DPhiGlee annually to raise awareness and funds for ANAD.
The Candlelight Vigil, is held by all Delta Phi Epsilon Chapters across the country. The Phi Lambda Chapter hosts the Candlelight Vigil in conjunction with Eating Disorder Awareness Week every Spring. Prior to the vigil, guest speakers who have struggled with eating disorders come to speak to the community and share their story. Past speakers have included former Miss America and Emory student, Kirsten Haglund, and Emory graduate Lisa Guo. If you are interested in speaking at the candlelight vigil or would want your story to be heard in any other way, please contact Jamie Nadler at firstname.lastname@example.org
