The House That Theta Phi Alpha Built, established in 1993, has the goal of improving the plight of the homeless and allows the flexibility of selection suitable organizations to support, such as those providing aid to the homeless through shelters, home building, or neighborhood revitalization projects. This permits Theta Phi Alphas to help those in need in their own community, while remaining united in our aim and purpose.

Our Disaster Relief Fund was established in the wake of Hurricane Katrina during 2005 to provide assistance to sisters affected by a Presidentially-declared disaster. Grants can be used for purchasing basic necessities, such as food, clothing, and temporary housing. Many items permitted are not covered by insurance or FEMA grants, so this extra assistance helps to bridge the gap of the financial losses incurred.

Charting impact

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

Theta Phi Alpha Foundation is working to increase our profile by increasing engagement and making it more fun to be involved with our organization.

Theta Phi Alpha Foundation has been working to reorganize our structure and to recruit new Directors to create more exciting programming and supportive materials for our organization. We also have added a team concept to recruit volunteers to our organization. With the increased involvement, we expect to have increased participation and engagement, as well as expanded opportunities and offerings. We feel that these items will expand our ability to provide more resources to support our mission statement.

Theta Phi Alpha Foundation is able to fulfill needs, but with the expanded volunteer network, we feel that we will be able to expand resources and programming support.

Theta Phi Alpha Foundation's most recent accomplishment has been to fund mental health programming through two programs, DignityU and Behind Happy Faces. We have also recently created a restricted fund for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access. Our academic scholarship and programming efforts have been strengthened through the creation of a dozen endowment funds. Our Philanthropy Guide provides a resource to develop programs for philanthropy and community service that can be performed by individuals and groups.
