Alpha Xi Delta’s Philanthropic Focus:
The Kindly Hearts Initiative
The Kindly Hearts Initiative serves as the umbrella to our national philanthropic focus of supporting children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Deltas across the country support two Key Impact Organizations, FosterClub and StandUp for Kids, making a national and regional difference under the umbrella of our focus.
Letters of Love
All Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations participate in Letters of Love, Alpha Xi Delta’s national letter writing fundraising campaign. Held annually during the month of November this campaign benefits Alpha Xi Delta’s two Key Impact Organizations, StandUp for Kids and FosterClub.
Our Chapter's Impact:
The Kindly Hearts Initiative
The Kindly Hearts Initiative is a year-long campaign focused on service and fundraising to support our communities, especially those experiencing foster care or homelessness.
To support the Kindly Hearts Initiative, Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations create project plans within one or more of the following areas of focus: fundraising volunteering, and donating. Below is more information about each area of focus and examples of ways our Sisters can help.
Our local impact organization is 1 Ohana 1 Community, which is an organization that provides services & needed items to foster children, foster parents, foster families, biological parents reunifying with their family and teens aging out of foster care
The Alpha Xi Delta Theta Omicron chapter also holds an AmaXing Challenge once a year: our annual Xi Competition. This allows for other organizations to participate and fundraise for the Kindly Hearts Initiative, not only bringing our community together but also spreading awareness about our philanthropy and our cause.
Start a Fundraiser.
Make giving a little competitive and start a fundraiser! Get a team together with your coworkers or employees, sorority Sisters, neighbors, or friends and challenge yourselves. Can you raise enough to provide for a student? A whole class? A whole school?
Volunteer Your Time.
Your time and talents are invaluable. One-to-one mentoring, tutoring and providing academic support are ways to make a positive impact.
Volunteer Your Time and Talents.
Sorting and packing. You can keep the shelves stocked by assembling boxes of food for distribution.
Assisting at mobile pantries, drive-thru pantries, and no-contact distributions.
Prepare food in a Hunger Relief Kitchen.
Delivering meals. (ex. Meals on Wheels)
Additional Philanthropic Events
Additional events we coordinate throughout the semester may involve group and individual service project opportunities, donation drives, profit share nights at local restaurants, food fundraising events and more!

We have participated in Habitat for Humanity frequently over the years, another way that our sisters give back to the community and provide to those in need.
