At Convention 2012, Gamma Phi Beta announced our new philanthropic focus: Building Strong Girls. As advocates for women, our organization envisions a community where every girl and woman has the skills to succeed in life. The Sorority’s new philanthropic focus expresses our philanthropic mission, to provide experiences and resources that build spiritual, mental and social resiliency in girls, in today’s world.
In addition to a new philanthropic focus, the Sorority also announced its newest philanthropic partner – Girls On The Run. A volunteer-led program, Girls on the Run weaves training for a 5K run with fun, experience-based lessons that improve self-awareness, build a collection of positive experiences and inspire life-changing confidence through accomplishment. The organization’s programming inspires self-respect and healthy lifestyles in girls, and their core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development.
Gamma Phi Beta is a proud supporter of Camp Fire USA. Camp Fire USA is one of the nation's largest non-profit organizations. Its goal is to create confident, caring, future leaders in America's Youth. Camp Fire USA was created in 1910 and has served over 750,000 children.
Gamma Phi Beta raises money for Camp Fire USA by hosting Camp Week: a week of activites that other fraternities and sororities on campus compete in. Each year, Gamma Phi Beta sends over 100 deserving girls to camp and donates over $57,000 to Camp Fire USA!
In spring 2013, Gamma Phi Beta held a "Field Day" in order to raise money for our philanthropy, Building Strong Girls! During our Crescent Classic, we raised over $1,000 by selling tank tops, raffle tickets, and prizes. We had several other chapters participate in our active day of games such as egg on a spoon, 3-legged race, and water balloon toss!
