The Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation was established in 1966 with the mission to encourage the personal and professional advancement of women by supporting educational and philanthropic programs that are responsive to the needs of our communities. Through grants and loans, the Foundation assists members and their children to complete their education or continue with graduate studies. The Educational Foundation also provides funding for educational programs and leadership training for undergraduate members and advisers.
Every year we partner with Alpha Kappa Lambda and put on a Spelling Bee. Representatives from each organization compete in rounds to win money for their philanthropy. We get 45% and Alpha Kappa Lambda gets 45% of the proceeds and the winner receives 10%. Each year we give our proceeds to support the Education Foundation.
