What we aim to solve

Young college students are entering the most challenging and formative stage of their life. Many take on these challenges at great expense, away from home and without adequate mentorship. The Alpha Phi Delta Foundation seeks to prepare them to become exemplary young adults, upstanding citizens within their communities and their country.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to help students meet these challenges via our scholarship, leadership, community service, cultural affairs and mentorship programs.

Our scholarships assist with educational expenses.
Our network of chapters becomes a second home away from home for these students.
Our volunteer alumni mentor these students throughout their collegiate life.
Our leadership programs teach these students to excel in an interactive setting.
Our cultural affairs and community/campus service programs help students become better citizens.

Our financial resources and our alumni volunteers for the basis of our extensive capabilities.

Each year, hundreds of alumni donate directly to our scholarship and other programs. Their generosity makes all of our work possible. A scholarship board selects over 60 students each year to receive grants ranging from $500 to $5,000.

Our alumni volunteers, accomplished professionals in a variety of disciplines, guide our students through several programs each year.
- We hold four regional leadership conferences each year in which students from a number of colleges meet and interactively work together to learn leadership and collaboration.
- Our students organize and participate in community or campus service project each semester under alumni supervision.
- Our students are encouraged to participate in one cultural activity each year, also with alumni guidance.
- Our newest initiative, APD Cares, helps members in need as a result of a natural disaster.

Our objective is to grow the number of scholarships and the size of the scholarship. We now provide 62 students with scholarships each year. Since our founding, we've awarded over 1,000 scholarships. We will grow both the number and size of our scholarships by encouraging past donors to increase the size of their funds, we solicit new donors including past recipients and we've embarked on a program of estate and memorial giving.

We plan to expand our regional leadership programs which now reach roughly 350 students each year. In addition to adding more regional programs, we plan over the long term to provide some of the programs interactively via the web or through one on one online training.

A long-term goal is to provide training for our volunteers. Using a "train the trainer model", we could achieve a lot more leverage and reach a lot more students this way.

We've assisted 26 members and/or their families who lost a loved one due to Covid-19.
