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.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

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.


CANDLELIGHT VIGIL

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 emorydphie.vpp@gmail.com

"Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond."

Delta Phi Epsilon has raised more than $1 million dollars for CFF since 1967. We are very proud to support this amazing cause at the Phi Lambda Chapter. DPhiE chapters around the nation host many philanthropic events to raise money for CFF such as: Deepher Dudes pageants, Great Strides Walks, and 65 Roses for Cystic Fibrosis Balls. At the Phi Lambda Chapter, we held our first annual Eat to Beat Cystic Fibrosis Food Truck Festival! Food trucks lined Asbury Circle and attendees were also able to play carnival games after they ate! All proceeds were donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
