Our philanthropic mission is to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental, and social resiliency in girls. We do this through our philanthropic focus, Building Strong Girls. We host one philanthropy event per semester to support this mission: Moonball and Have a Heart.
BUILDING STRONG GIRLS
Moonball is Gamma Phi Beta's signature philanthropy event which supports our international philanthropic goal of Building Strong Girls. In Fall 2016, we hosted our very first Moonball basketball tournament on the row. We coached and cheered on our fraternity teams and had a blast getting outside and active for a great cause. Proceeds went to Girls on the Run, one of our favorite organizations. Gamma Phi Beta is the proud exclusive Panhellenic Conference National Sponsor of "Girls on the Run International", a non-profit organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
HAVE A HEART
To make a difference even closer to home, Gamma Phi hosts our Have a Heart dinner in the spring. This event is especially meaningful to us because we vote to give the proceeds to causes that directly impact our sisters. Last year this event benefitted two causes that are very dear to our particular chapter: USC Troy Camp and the Amanda McPherson Foundation. Have a Heart is special to us as well as it is open to anyone who wants to come in and participate. We are always thrilled when we are able to make a difference within our community.
