The University of Southern Mississippi

Philanthropy

From the time of our founding, Alpha Delta Pi has believed in the importance of giving back to our community. A dedication to philanthropy guides our members to spend time in the service of those who need it most. Our international organization’s commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities has led to the donation of over $15,000,000 over the course of our partnership. More than 350 Ronald McDonald Houses in 64 countries help keep families with seriously ill or injured children together when they need it most by offering them a comfortable, temporary residence in proximity to a medical facility.

The Eta Zeta chapter hosts two philanthropy events every year to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities. In the Fall we host Taco Night where we sell tickets for taco plates and nachos. In the Spring we host Alpha Delta Dodgeball where organizations across campus can sign up to compete in a dodgeball tournament! The majority of the funds we raise from these events go directly to the Ronald McDonald House in Jackson, Mississippi. Our sisters also collect pop tabs throughout the year to help raise money!
