The Alpha Phi Foundation was established in 1956. The foundation empowers women to achieve scholastic excellence, be leaders, and aids in the fight against the number one killer of women - heart disease. We raise and award funds for programs that encourage academic excellence, advance leadership development, and improve women's heart health.
The Red Dress Gala is an annual fall semester event that allows us to share our philanthropy with all of our family and friends. This event includes fun games, delicious food, and a silent auction. We support our sisters as they share their personal experiences, bringing awareness to the importance of research into women’s heart health. Proceeds are donated directly to the Alpha Phi Foundation.
In the spring, Iota Mu hosts Alpha Phreeze. Our sisters have a picnic and give out popsicles outside of our house in order to promote awareness for our other events and connect with the overall Georgia Tech community. Maintaining a good relationship with all GT students, even if they are not in Greek life, is important to Alpha Phi.
King of Hearts is our annual satirical male beauty pageant that takes place during the spring semester. Men from different organizations on campus compete to win, and they practice for weeks to deliver everyone's favorite performances of the year. King of Hearts brings in overwhelming support from all over campus. Money raised goes directly to the Alpha Phi Foundation to support Women's Heart Health.
Our sisters are also involved in the local community! You can always find Phis volunteering at a variety of organizations and participating in the philanthropy of other Greek chapters at Tech. All causes, big and small, Alpha Phis will always be there to lend a hand.
In previous years, we have teamed up with other Greek organizations to host Alpha Phright Night. This event transforms a house on campus into a haunted house with an entrance fee that is donated to our philanthropy! The event also includes the screening of a horror movie. Phright Night is a great time to get in the Halloween spirit while raising money for heart health!
